There's a new TV show on the BBC called How to Cheat at Cooking. It's just wrong, all wrong. I'm hoping that there will be a revolution and a new show will start instead called How to Make Simple Tasty Things Without Using Frozen Mashed Potato and Tinned Mince. It would be a surefire hit especially if it included this signature dish from my vast repertoire of nosh.
Take some old bread and slice, you may have some already sliced.
Crack a couple of eggs into a little bowl and beat well and season.
Place egg in a shallow-ish bowl and add the bread.
Turn the bread so that the egg soaks in on both sides but not so much that it falls apart.
Put some butter or oil in a frying pan. Butter is tastiest.
Add eggy bread being careful to avoid disintegration.
Cook over gentle heat and turn over so that both sides brown and cook completely.
Eat with gusto, brown sauce or the condiment of your choosing.
Tune in next week for cheese and biscuits!
