French Toast Grilled Cheese Recipe
Nadiya’s savoury take on French toast is a great option for a pleasant lunch. It’s loaded with cheese, ham, and a hint of spice. As seen on BBC’s Time to Eat.
A good way to enjoy bread is to dip it in egg and fry it. This is different than its sweet counterparts. French toast can be served as a lunch alternative to or even in place of breakfast. These are great to have in the freezer for those times when you don’t have time or energy to prepare lunch. To reheat them, you can simply put them in the oven while you are working on other things.
|¼ tsp||ground turmeric|
|1 tsp||garlic granules|
|1 tsp||onion granules|
|6 slices||of sliced white bread|
|3 slices||of cooked ham / turkey / vegetarian ham slices|
|3 slices||of mild cheese|
vegetable oil, for frying
Put the eggs into a shallow bowl, wide enough to take a slice of bread, and add the milk, salt, sugar, turmeric, garlic granules and onion granules. Mix well and leave to sit for 5 minutes, allowing the granules to rehydrate in the egg mix.
Sandwich the bread slices with the cheese and ham. Place them in the egg mixture, and then place them on a plate.
Place a nonstick frying pan on the stovetop with a thin coating of oil. Dip one sandwich in the egg mixture, then fry it on medium heat for 3 minutes until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Then turn the sandwich over and cook for 3 more minutes. Use a spatula lightly to seal the bread. Once they are done, divide them in half.
You can add more oil to the bottom of the pan, and continue with the sandwiches, dipping them and frying the same. Depending on how absorbent your bread is, you might have enough eggy mixture left over to make another sandwich.
Serve hot, with a dollop of ketchup if you like.
These are best eaten fresh, but if there are any left over you can wrap them in foil and freeze them.
