Cream Cheese French Toast and Smoked Salmon

Happy Australia Day!

I was coming home from a job early this morning and stopped past the shops to grab eggs and bread. Driving home, I suddenly had a huge craving for french toast. It’s such an easy and delicious breakfast (or any meal) and you can adapt it to either savoury or sweet tastes (nutella and strawberries anyone?). You can top it with a little powdered sugar, fruit and yoghurt… or in this case, sandwiched with cream cheese and served with smoked salmon.

I came across this recipe by Not Quite Nigella after googling “french toast smoked salmon”. Genius. It’s actually quite an obvious combination when you think about it, but before stumbling onto this recipe I never would have thought to put all these ingredients together. I have adapted the recipe slightly to make it a bit healthier.

Cream Cheese French Toast and Smoked Salmon

Serves one, easily adapted for more servings

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 TBS cream cheese (I use light)
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of milk
  • 50g smoked salmon
  • Olive oil spray

Spread the cream cheese in between the two slices of bread. In a wide bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and add in a pinch of salt and pepper. Soak the sandwich in the egg until it has completely absorbed. Spray a little oil in a frypan on medium heat and fry the sandwich until golden on both sides. Serve with smoked salmon.

This meal works out to be around 380 calories.
