Porridge and Eggy Bread

The children in Kitchen Garden Club made porridge and eggy bread and then celebrated their success with a cup of strawberry smoothie which they made using our home-grown strawberries.  It was delicious.


Save your strawberries

Posted by Mrs S. Brennan on June 21st, 2011

To help prevent slugs and snails from eating your strawberry crop, place clean dry straw around the base of your strawberry plants so that the strawberries are on the straw and not laying on top of the damp soil or compost.

Hand picked at school today.

French Toast (Eggy Bread)

Posted by Mrs S. Brennan on June 21st, 2011

Serves 2

2 slices bread

2 eggs

70ml semi-skimmed milk

small knob of butter for frying each slice


Place the bread on the chopping board ready for use.

Break the eggs into the shallow casserole dish and add all of the milk.

Gently beat the mixture with a fork until the yolk and the white are mixed together with the milk.

Place the bread into the mixture, making sure it is totally covered.  Be sure to let the mixture soak into the bread and turn over if necessary.

Turn on the hob to medium heat and put the butter in the frying pan.  It’s hot enough when the butter starts to bubble.

Using a palette knife or fish slice, remove the bread from the mixture and place in the frying pan.

Cook the bread until the underside is golden brown (about 3-4 minutes).

Use the palette knife or fish slice to transfer the french toast to a plate to serve.

As the pan is already quite hot, turn the heat down slightly before adding another small knob of butter and cooking the second slice.
