Warning: do not read this if you are being healthy for January. I was in need of comfort food today, and this was it!
Eggy Bread was a staple of school breakfasts, and very good it was, too. It wasn't quite the same as French toast, as I understand the latter to be sweet and served with fruit, while this was definitely savoury and could well be served with bacon.
So I decided to make an American-style "grilled cheese sandwich", but to soak the bread in beaten egg first.... yes, I know, heart attack on a plate, but there are times....
2 slices Tesco cornbread (which I have a craze on just now, but of course, any other bread will do just fine)
Cheddar cheese (or other melty cheese of your choice)
Butter the bread and make a cheese sandwich with it. Beat the egg, and season with salt and pepper, then turn the sandwich over in it several times until the bread is soaked. Fry in butter on both sides, pouring any excess egg over the top of the bread..... Lovely! But really, not to be eaten too often!
