Savoury French Toast

5 eggs
1 cup (250 mL) milk
¼ cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp (2 mL) dried oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
¾ tsp (4 mL) coarse salt
½ tsp (2 mL) freshly cracked black pepper
5-6 slices French bread, or other crusty bread, cut into 1”-thick slices
1-2 Tbsp (15-30 mL) butter, for frying


Place eggs, milk, cheese, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper into a large, shallow dish. Whisk together well. Add slices of bread to the baking dish and let soak 1 minute per side.

Melt 1 Tbsp butter in non-stick pan over medium heat.

Carefully place soaked bread slices into the hot skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes to ensure the French toast has cooked through.

Top each slice with:

  • More grated Parmesan
  • Fried egg
  • Ham/bacon and cheese
  • Tomato
