The kids can do nearly everything here. They love cutting the crusts off the bread, cracking the eggs into the bowl and then beating the eggs. They can even break up the crusts and help throw them outside for the birds.

This might seem strange but make sure you ventilate the kitchen while you're cooking these as they really make your clothing smell of eggy bread (It's a nice reminder of breakfast that lasts all day!!)

Variations

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall suggests serving his honey-baked rhubarb recipe with french toast. We haven't tried it yet as the kids keep eating the baked rhubarb before we get a chance to try it with the eggy bread.
