South African Food Adventures 5 – Holiday Brekkie Idea

Project 2012: Day 365

Ok. This isn’t just a Christmas holiday recipe. It may not even be a South African recipe. And it certainly isn’t one we’ve had yet.

But it is easy. It sounds yummy. And I plan to indulge this holiday season.

Banana & Blueberry French Toast

Ingredients

  • 4 slices white bread
  • A good handful of blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 eggs (roughly 1 egg per slice of bread)
  • Some milk
  • Natural yoghurt or creme fraiche, to serve

Method

  • Pop a frying pan onto medium heat, either with a dollop of butter, or some oil
  • Mash the banana in a mixing bowl
  • Mix in the blueberries & the honey
  • Beat the eggs in another (shallow) mixing bowl and add a little milk to the mixture
  • Soak the bread in the egg mixture allowing it to soak up.
  • Place one slice of bread on a board & smear the fruit mixture over the top leaving a space around the edges.
  • Pop another slice on top of the first to make a “sandwich”
  • Whack it into the frying pan, pressing down with the egg flip
  • Fry until golden brown on both sides

Serve hot with the yoghurt, and preferably a side of bacon.

Nom.

I’ll let you know how they were in 2013.
