Healthy Sunday morning breakfast - Savory French Toast
No one in our house is a morning sweet person. So making the regular french toast, the sweet version is out of option. But make a spicy breakfast or savory with some salt, I wouldn't have any complaints. So from time to time I make this dish adapted from my Mom. Its the savory version of the french toast. It has onions, green chillies and some cilantro or coriander leaves. I think it would even taste yummy with some ginger too. My husband likes to eat it with idli podi, I eat it plain. For the kids I omit adding the green chillies and coriander, and they like it that way only with onions.
I think it a healthy quick way of using of the bread and also having a good breakfast. It doesn't take much time to make either.
I used whole grain, wheat, regular loaf bread, but any bread can be used. The recipe I made makes about 6 slices of french toast. Just increase the amount of eggs and milk to make more. Adjust salt accordingly. I don't add chilli powder (it would be more like a spicy omelete), but did add pinch of black pepper.
6 slices whole grain wheat bread
1/4 - 1/2 cup milk
pinch of black pepper
salt to taste
some chopped onions
green chilli, thinly sliced
chopped coriander leaves
oil for shallow frying
Mix the eggs, milk, black pepper and salt in a bowl. In a pan, add few drops of oil and heat. Dip the bread in the eggy mixture on both sides, and put in the heated pan. Add the chopped onions, chillies and coriander. Add a few drops of oil on the top side and flip over and press down. Fry both sides to golden brown. Serve hot and Enjoy!!!
Tip: Remember to add just enough salt as the eggs already add salt to the dish.
Press down so that the onions don't fall when you flip it over again.
I didn't use a crusty bread. I used regular bread, so if u soak it for long, it will start breaking. So don't dip it for long.
Prep time: 15 - 25 min, depending on how many mouths you are feeding!!!!
