When we visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, we decided to have breakfast at the Three Broomsticks. I ordered the Eggy bread, better known as french toast in the USA. It was served with bacon and strawberries and it was delicious. I adapted our home version of french toast to use the french bread and found I really like it this way. For cooking, I can get almost our entire family done at once with our cast iron griddle. I enjoy the thicker bread slices for the eggy bread. This has turned into our favorite way to enjoy this dish. Enjoy!

Three Broomsticks Eggy Bread Recipe
- 6 eggs
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 6 tbsp milk
- ¾ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 french bread loaf, sliced
- 1 tbsp butter
- powdered sugar, for sprinkling on top
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add the cinnamon, mix well.
Add the milk, vanilla and salt. Whisk the eggs and milk together with a fork, then put to one side.
Place the frying pan on a medium heat to heat up.
Dip one slice of bread into the eggy mixture, turning it over a few times to make sure it’s well coated.
Add butter to the frying pan and spread the butter around to evenly coat the cooking area.
Lift the soaked bread up in the bowl and allow the excess mixture to drip off, then carefully lower it into the pan.
Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through, using a spatula to flip it over.
Carefully lift the bread out of the frying pan and onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Repeat steps for remaining bread.
Serve with maple syrup, bacon and fresh fruit.
