Hot Cross Bun French Toast

Don’t bin those stale or leftover buns, it’s time to make hot cross bun french toast!

This quick, delicious and simple breakfast recipe idea will keep the family happy on Easter morning.

It’s based on one of my favourite breakfast recipes, french toast – also known as eggy bread and what I love about this recipe is that there are plenty of topping choices to choose from.

My top 5 hot cross bun eggy bread toppings:

  • Melted butter, pistachios & smashed blueberries.
  • Honey, yoghurt and almonds.
  • Orange and Crème Fraiche
  • Melt your chocolate bunny and cover your buns with a seasonal rhubarb & apple compote.
  • Bacon, avocado and egg?

I’ll let you decide what you fancy on top of your eggy bread hot cross buns.
