April 2022
Reading time 5 minutes
A twist on a much-loved classic. Mushrooms and watercress make this French toast even more delicious!
Preparation Time
10 minutes
Cooking Time
10 minutes
  • 2 Slices thick crusty bread
  • 1 egg
  • 100g mushrooms, halved
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
  • 80g Watercress, chopped
  • 50g grated Swiss cheese
  • Butter

1. In a bowl, beat the egg and add a little salt and pepper. Dip the bread in, covering both sides.

2. Heat some butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the eggy bread for a couple of minutes, flip it and sprinkle the grated cheese on the side that is cooked so it melts. 

3. Meanwhile, heat a knob butter in a pan over a medium heat (add garlic if using), cook the mushrooms. Add the watercress as the mushrooms start to brown and cook for no longer than a minute, so that the watercress has just wilted.

4. Serve the mushrooms and watercress on top of the cooked bread with lots of black pepper.
