odlums french toast

What you need:

  • 4 slices of Bread
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tbsp Shamrock Golden Caster Sugar
  • Butter, for frying


  • Buckwud Maple Syrup
  • 4 Bananas, sliced
  • 50g/2oz Shamrock Walnuts, roughly chopped

How to:

  1. Beat the eggs, milk and sugar well in a bowl, then transfer to a large shallow dish so you can easily dip in a slice of bread.
  2. Dip each side of bread in the batter and allow to soak for a few seconds.
  3. Heat a knob of butter in a pan over a medium heat. Fry both sides of the bread until golden brown.
  4. Put 2 slices of hot toast on a plate, cover with sliced banana, drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with the walnuts.
  5. If serving a large number keep the toast warm in a preheated oven 130°C/250°F/Gas½.


The toast can be used for both sweet and savoury recipes. If savoury, omit the sugar and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

A great way to use up stale bread!
