Recently I was contacted on behalf of British Lion Eggs. To one lucky reader they are offering a copy of Michel Roux’s Eggs (more than just boiled egg recipes), as well as a selection of egg cooking goodies.
As you may well know, I am not a fan of eggs on their own, but I do love a post-run breakfast of pancakes or French Toast.
This weekend I made French toast using a mini pannetone, and it was gorgeous. I sliced the pannetone and left it out overnight so it would firm up a bit (as stale bread is meant to be better). Then when I got back from my run, I cracked an egg into a bowl, added a little almond extract and a splash of milk, and then dipped the slices of bread in the mixture.
I heated some coconut oil in a pan (just a tsp), and cooked the slices two at a time. Sometimes I have it with fresh fruit, or a cooked apple, but this week I picked up some cheap blueberries, so I cooked them in a pan with a few tbs of water, plus a sprinkling of coconut sugar, until they went all jammy.
Once the French toast was cooked I topped each slice with a little maple butter (my last) and the poured on the sauce.
I only wish that there were more mini pannetones still in the shops as they are the perfect size!
So, to be in with a chance, please comment telling me how you like your eggs. Entries close on Saturday 31st January at midday, and are for UK residents only. Then I will draw a name at random and let you know.
