Australia Day . . . nom nom nom
Greetings all & happy Australia Day!!
We did the typical Australian things today . . . slipped on thongs & went swimming, bike riding & ate up a storm.
One of my favourite things about Australia & Australians . . . is our sense of humour, even at the guarded entrances on military bases!!
Our menu was a rolling brunch of multicultural delights - French croissants, Italian sausages, Greek salad, Kiwi Fruit & Canadian bacon (only joking, Darling Downs bacon!!)
Here's a crowd pleaser for brunch, i've never made French toast before, so i gave it a go today - savoury sandwich style!!
Basic French toast . . . gently whisk eggs (1 egg per 2 slices of multigrain bread) coat bread generously & fry, then pop in the oven to keep warm; fry ham, bacon & eggs (both sides).
Composition . . . layer toast, ham, bacon, egg + fancy cheese if you have some, i didn't think that far ahead, gruyere would be perfection & i'd add sprouts or herbs too. Slice into fingers!!
Serve with a Finnish napkin, da dah!! How Australian was that?? Love Posie
