Recipe: French Toast

I don’t think there’s anything quite as comforting as French toast, whether for breakfast, brunch, supper, or just a snack any time, and surprisingly enough, it’s easy enough to make this so Slimming World friendly that it will cost you not a single syn! How great is that? Not only that, it can be made savoury or sweet to suit your mood – even better!

F = Free food (eat as much as you like)

HEa = Healthy Extra A (a daily allowance of dairy produce)
HEb = Healthy Extra B (a daily allowance of a product with fibre)

Savoury French toast with sauteed mushrooms

serves 1 – syn-free


  • 2 slices wholemeal bread from a 400g loaf (HEB)
  • 1 large egg (P)
  • splash skimmed milk (optional) (HEA)
  • herbs, spices, salt, pepper, sweetener (optional) (F)
  • Frylight (F)


  1. Beat the eggs, adding whichever optional ingredients you like (I use salt, pepper, mixed herbs and a pinch of paprika for savoury, or a little sweetner, and a pinch each of nutmeg and cinnamon for sweet).
  2. Dunk the bread in the egg mixture, making sure to coat it entirely and let it all soak in a little.
  3. Liberally spray a frying pan with Frylight, then fry the eggy bread till golden and cooked through (should take a few minutes each side).

I serve my savoury French toast with sauteed mushrooms, and my sweet French toast with mixed berries, just to make sure I have a little bit of speed food on my plate with it. Absolutely delicious, and ready in a jiffy!
