Easy tasty lunch – French toast rolled up with a quick decoration.
This is a great recipe to use up leftover pieces of bread after cutting out shapes for their sandwiches. I usually store the leftovers in an airtight Ziploc bag and use them to make French toast about once a week. So easy to make and the kids love it! Although I must say that these days I end up with fewer portions of leftover bread as all three of them snag the leftover bits right after I cut out their sandwiches!
Tip – Roll up the French toast when it is still warm! Makes it easier to roll and to retain the rolled shape after it has cooled. I used the lunchbox lid to hold the roll in place when it was cooling.
Z1 had his French toast decorated like a bear, I had wanted to make it look like Rilakkuma but somehow the features look a bit off. Still looks like a bear though! And Z2 had – no prizes for guessing right – Hello Kitty again!
They each had a slice of apple, cheese cubes and yoghurt as sides. Z2’s cheese cubes were given to her separately as her lunchbox was actually smaller than Z1’s. (It’s a set of nesting Sugarbunnies lunchboxes). The ladybug on Z1’s yoghurt is a baran, makes it look a lot less boring with minimal effort. If you have noticed, I did not provide any syrup or honey to go with the French toast as I had added a teaspoon of sugar into the egg mixture when preparing the French toast.
