Oh my goodness... I had my creative head on this morning. I was determined I was going to have french toast for breakfast this weekend, given the recent discussions about it. So I got a 400g wholemeal loaf so I could use two slices as a HexB. And did the usual, beat an egg with a little milk and mixed in some ground cinnamon. Put in the bread and left it to soak up all the eggy/cinnamon mixture. Meanwhile, I put some blueberries in a small saucepan with a dash of water and simmered them, squishing them as they started swelling from the heat, added a dash of agave syrup (you could use sweetener) and simmered it down until it was a simple, fresh blueberry sauce. Took maybe 8-10 minutes. Stuck a couple pieces of bacon under the grill, cooked the eggy bread slices with a bit of fry light til golden. Put them on the plate, blueberry sauce on top, a couple slices of bacon on the side. Heaven!
OK, so it's not the buttery, sugary french toast of my youth but Slimming World is all about re-training yourself to eat better and find new and exciting tastes. And this defintely is one of them! The cinnamon gives the bread a sort of sweet taste and really lifts the flavour. The blueberry sauce is just indulgence on a plate! Lovely!!!!!!
