French Toast {FPF- Week 1}

The Friday Project Files is a fun feature where each Friday throughout 2013 I share a weekend project with a tutorial that you might like to try over the weekend! There is no guarantee that the projects were my idea originally, but I share my take on them! You can read more about FPF and see other FPF projects here (as the list grows... since this is the first project!)


I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I find it hard to eat a substantial breakfast every morning because I don't like cereal and toast with jam gets boring. So usually my breakfast ends up being a cup of Milo/Hot Chocolate and perhaps a piece of fruit if we have a nice peach or nectarine in the fruit bowl. Introduce the lovely French toast. It is delicious and also very fast, easy and reasonably healthy... all which make for a great breakfast to start the day! I seriously think you should try some this weekend!

You will need:
  • 3 pieces of bread
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar (to serve)
  • 2 eggs (more if you want to use the whole piece of bread instead of shapes)
  • Various cookie cutters
  • Butter (for frying)
  • Whisk

Or you can use the whole piece of bread cut into halves or quarters (in that case you might need another egg). The scraps could be crumbed into breadcrumbs!

Make sure all of the bread has been covered in egg.

Once the frypan has heated up, turn the gas down low and fry the shapes until browned. You may like to cook them for a bit longer or shorter depending on how crisp you like your toast.

I love my French toast with cinnamon and sugar, but how you eat yours is up to your imagination! You might like to try banana and maple syrup, bacon and tomato or maybe even icing sugar and strawberries! Go wild!

If you do this project too and make yourself some yummy french toast for breakfast, I would love for you to share a photo on my Facebook page, on Instagram with the hashtag #fridayprojectfiles, or through a comment on this post and you can be included in the FPF Project Page where there will be a collection of all the projects over the year. I can't wait to see how your toast turns out and what you decide to top it with!

Be sure to come back next week (if not before!) when I share a tutorial to make some cute fabric flag bunting!

Have a fantastic weekend x
