Ingredients

  • 6 pieces of bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parm (or cheddar or Gruyère)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Sautéed mushrooms with thyme, for serving (optional)

Preparation

For 6 pieces of bread, whisk up 3 eggs and 1/2 cup grated Parm in a pie dish or a wide shallow bowl. Dip the bread in the egg to coat, then cook in about 1 tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat until the bread is golden, about 2 minutes per side. Serve alongside soup for dunking, or top the savory slices with sautéed mushrooms with thyme for a fun take on breakfast for dinner.
