My 8-year old son requested French toast for breakfast yesterday.  My son lets me know what food he wants which I appreciate, as I usually run out of ideas on what to cook and prepare.   I make an effort to cook what he asks for – that is if I have the ingredients in my pantry or fridge.

1 egg
60ml milk
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp vanilla essence
2 slices wholemeal bread
1 tbsp of Nutella (optional)

Place egg, milk, sugar and vanilla in a dish, whisk with fork
Place bread into egg mixture and leave for 2 minutes
Heat non-stick frying pan, place the bread into the pan and allow to brown before turning to brown other side.

My son requested his favourite Nutella spread on top.

The pork formula/flavour still eludes me. Pickled julienned carrots and papaya, cucumber, fresh coriander, fresh chilli, chilli sauce, and the seasoned pork.

Hubby and I rarely miss buying this Vietnamese-style sandwich at our Sunday market.
