Savoury Eggy Bread

Another breakfast simple savory breakfast food! This one even doesn’t need a recipe, but I will post it anyway. This is something my mom made for breakfast when bread got “hard”.  We never wasted food (we can’t afford that!) and now I don’t waste food cause I thought well! That is how I grew up – simple clean eating! Now people pay money to get to know what is simple/clean food!


So here is recipe.

    1. French!? Interesting, I thought French toast has cheese in it 🙂 or made with sugar…. And if we went to France than half of our “French food” wouldn’t be French any more 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. I commented before, here in Latvia something different is called French toast :). Interesting! Are you making it with “salt” and then add Nutella?! Or that one is made without salt?!

  1. A favourite ‘recipe’ from childhood, ‘eggy bread’. ‘French toast’ for us was something completely different, a slice of bread buttered on one side and toasted on the other. Was a way of using up left-over buttered bread as, like you Ilze, no food would be thrown away. I don’t resent this history of ‘poverty’ but rather am grateful for the ‘training’ which means I have absolutely no ‘food fads’, or allergies. I’m salivating about this eggy bread now and will make a slice when I get home to go with my tea!

  2. We called it French Toast when we were kids. I later found out that FT was with sugar sprinkled on it. I don’t like it like that. I much prefer your version (same as mine). Great way to use up any stale bread! I grew up not wasting food and continue to do so even now! Not a bad thing. I also think it makes you more inventive and creative when you need to come up with ideas to use up leftovers etc.

    1. Yes! At first it seems “difficult” to make your meal from “what you have in fridge” + “leftovers from yesterday” but … doing that, you start to think about “how much you need to make” and leftovers are no more a problem! 🙂
