Savory French Toast

My mom used to make this for breakfast back home 35 years ago. That time we didn’t know it call French toast , she makes it and we eat it with tea and stay full till lunch.  After coming to US , saw it sweet French toast, concept was same, dip the bread in egg but with sweet spices and cook it . Since then I was so intrigued to make this and share it with you. So here is the recipe which we grew on it.  Its hardly takes 5 minutes but the weekend breakfast is so filling that you are good to go till you can have your next meal.  I just added spices in it and cook it , just to make sure you cook it on medium flame so egg cooks in the middle of bread too. You can soak the bread in egg mixture nicely so it coats from all the time.  For me one egg can use for 3 bread slices but it depend upon egg and bread size.


1 Brown Egg (that’s I always used, Eggland’s best)
3 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread
Salt , pepper, red chili powder as per taste
1 tsp. finely chopped ginger
1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
1 tsp. oil


Beat the egg in a bowl , add your spices and ginger and garlic and mix it.
Heat the nonstick pan. Add oil in it.
Dip one slice of bread in egg mixture and flip it with fork to the other side, coat that side too and slide it in the pan.
If your pan is big size , you can cook two bread slices together.  If not cook one.
When it’s nice and brown on one side , flip it over and cook it on other side.
When it’s done , take it out on plate and put it on cooling rack, which you use for cookie to cool. Because if you put hot bread in dish, the side which touches the plate will be soften with the hot air and then water make it soggy.
So until you are not ready to eat, keep it on cooling rack.
When you are done with everything, serve it on plate and enjoy hot with hot masala or ginger tea.


  1. Quick and healthy breakfast linsy.

  2. Looks yummy! In the UK we call it eggy bread and it's usually savoury, but I do like a sweet French toast too :)

  3. What a great idea to make it savoury. I have only ever had sweet French toast before.

  4. Linsy, your Savory French Toast sounds incredibly flavourful and delicious with all those lovely spices. Here in the UK we have a savory French Toast called "Eggy Bread" but it is just eggs, milk and a bit of pepper to soak the bread. I find it so interesting how every country has a variation on so many recipes - thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop.
