1: Classic French Toast

We can’t talk about brunch without mentioning French toast. A classic brunch idea, French toast can be easily made at home. First, you’ll need a loaf of bread (or you can bake a fresh batch), fresh local eggsorganic milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk together the two eggs and a little milk, as well as a sachet of vanilla extract. Slice the bread and put them in a shallow dish. Lovingly pour the egg mixture over the slices of bread. Allow soaking for a couple of minutes before turning the bread over. Next, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan, and fry the bread for three minutes on either side over medium heat. Once ready, stack on a plate and dust with icing sugar and top with Italian cherries.

2: Lemon & Avocado Toast on Saltimbocca Bread

Avocado toast is a firm favourite among millennials across Europe and can be upgraded with a squeeze of lemon or a little fresh chilli. Using a ripe avocado, scoop out the green goodness, and with a fork, smash until creamy. After making toast, top with avocado and add sea salt to taste. Next, squeeze over lemon juice, add a handful of fresh watercress, and if you’re brave, top with chilli. You can also add a poached egg on top of your avocado toast or add smoked Spanish paprika for heat.
