French Toast with Kale, Avocado and Tomato Balsamic Jam

20180225_111959

I just love Sunday Brunch time, no alarm, lay in, relaxing morning and a fantastic big breakfast that will keep me going until my Sunday dinner. I couldn’t decide between sweet or savoury this morning, so why not both?? This was an absolute treat and so glad I had some fresh tomatoes as this jam just nailed the dish.

 

Makes 2 portions

For the Jam

10 cherry tomatoes – 1/4

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp butter

Sprayoil

1 red onion – finely chopped

For the French Toast

2 slices of bread (I used wholemeal)

1 tbsp butter for frying

2 eggs

Salt & pepper to taste

 

1 large handful of kale – I steamed cooked mine for 4 minutes, perfect.

1/2 Avocado – sliced

 

  1. To make the jam:- Heat 1 tbsp butter and some spray oil in a fry pan
  2. Saute the onion on medium heat until tender about 5 minutes
  3. Add brown sugar, stir and cook for a further 3 minutes
  4. Add the tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 5 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm
  5. To make the French Toast:- Heat 1 tbsp butter in a fry pan.
  6. Whisk the eggs and season with salt & pepper
  7. Place the slices of bread in the egg mixture and allow to soak for a minute, then place into the hot pan and fry on each side for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  8. Steam cook your kale.
  9. Place kale onto toast, then avocado slices then top with the jam.
  10. Serve…….so Yummy!

  1. Mix cream cheese, honey and 1 tsp cinnamon together
  2. Take a rolling pin over the bread slices to flatten
  3. Spoon the cream cheese filling into centre of 2 slices of bread
  4. Place the other slices over top to make a parcel
  5. Using a circular pastry cutter, cut out a circle on the bread, remove the crusts
  6. Whisk the egg, milk, 1tsp cinnamon, salt & pepper together and pout into a bowl
  7. Using a fork press down the outer edges of the 2 parcels to seal the bread together
  8. Dip the parcels into the egg mixture coating thoroughly
