The ultimate breakfast in bed! Cook Yourself Thin chef, Harry Eastwood, shows you how to turn ordinary bread into delicious French toast with honey-glazed bacon in just 10 minutes


  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • 1 slice of wholemeal bread (seeded wholemeal is even better)
  • 1tsp groundnut or light vegetable oil
  • 3 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 1tbsp runny honey
  • Pinch smoked paprika


  1. Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and beat it with a fork.
  2. Soak the bread in the egg mixture for 2 mins on each side. It helps to absorb the egg if you make some pinpricks in the bread with a fork.
  3. Heat the groundnut oil in a frying pan and add the soaked bread. Cook on a medium heat for a couple of mins until golden brown, then flip the toast over and cook for a further min on the other side.
  4. Remove the toast from the pan and set aside onto a plate.
  5. Fire up the heat under the frying pan and add the bacon rashers.
  6. Once cooked and crispy on both sides, add the honey to the pan and immediately take off the heat.
  7. Pile the bacon onto the toast and drizzle over the honey glaze.
  8. Sprinkle with a little smoked paprika before serving.
