Cheese and Ham French Toast Preheat oven to 180C/350F
2 eggs 115ml/4 1/4 fl oz milk sea salt freshly ground black pepper 2 slices white bread (3cm/1.25in thick) 2 slices cheddar cheese 2 slices ham, trimmed to fit bread Mustard olive oil/butter for frying
Place eggs, milk, salt and pepper into a large bowl. Whisk to combine
With a sharp, thin-bladed knife, carefully slit open one side of each slice of bread to form a pocket. Ensure that you leave 1cm/1/2" around the edges
Spread the mustard on one side of the pocket and place a slice of ham and cheese inside
Put the pockets into a shallow dish. Pour over the egg mixture and leave for five minutes, turning once
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat, add half of the oil/butter and swirl to coat the base of the pan
Put the bread pocket into the pan and cook on one side for about two minutes until golden brown. Turn add more oil/butter if needed and cook for another minute
Remove from the pan and place on a baking tray. Put in the oven and cook for ten minutes, or until the filling has melted
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
