French toast is a delicious morning treat, perfect for kids and adults alike. Strawberries really add a fresh, summery flavour.


  • 8 thick slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 4tbsp strawberry jam
  • 175g (6oz) Ossau-Iraty (French hard cheese), grated
  • 150g (5½ oz) fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced plus extra to garnish
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 100ml (3½ fl oz) full fat milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2tbsp caster sugar
  • 60g (2oz) unsalted butter, melted
  • 4tbsp crème fraiche


  1. Preheat oven to 140°C (gas mark 1, 120°C fan oven). Spread four slices of bread with strawberry jam and sprinkle each with the cheese and top with a layer of strawberries. Then top each with remaining four slices of bread to make four sandwiches.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together eggs, egg yolk, milk, cinnamon and sugar. Carefully dip each sandwich, one at time, into the bowl of egg mix. Leave to soak for a moment for two and turn over and repeat.
  3. Warm a frying pan over medium heat, add a little of the butter and cook until foaming but not brown. Place a sandwich in the frying pan and cook for 3-4 mins until golden brown, turning once. As each one is cooked place each of them into oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and butter.
  4. Serve each sandwich with a dollop of crème fraiche and a strawberry.
