AIBU to think eggy bread, bacon and beans is a perfectly reasonable tea for a Friday night?

My mother thinks I'm trying to poison my dcs I think

Surely as an occasional meal about 4 times a year it's not that bad?

Well I wouldn't have it for dinner. I would only have that for breakfast. But sometimes when everyone is out i have a packet of biscuits and 2 cups of tea (one to dunk, one to drink) for my dinner smile So just have what you want!

Shades it's bread (has to be thick, white bread) dipped in beaten egg then fried both sides.
Tis Yummy.

BTW OP I'd substitute the bacon for vegetarian bacon and you've got a deal.
DD would demolish that with the beans. grin

Got any brown sauce?

AuntLucyInPeru Fri 10-May-13 20:51:50

I never said this but .... Spoonful of sugar dissolved in the beaten egg. Died and gone to heaven.

Eggy bread, fresh berries and honey. Delicious.

cook 2 slices on 1 side, flip one, place on grated cheese onto the cooked side, put the other slice, cooked slice down onto the cheese, cook on both sides, cheesy dreams, magnificent!

No, no to savoury French toast! Sugar and lemon juice all the way smile

Yanbu, of course.

But I really came on to ask MrsK exactly how old she was when she worked out she could use two cups of tea to make biscuit dunking perfect. It's so, I don't know, grown up.

That's what we had tonight. I thought it was a good dinner.

TigOldBitties Fri 10-May-13 21:27:17

Yanbu! We have that, without the bacon nearly every Monday night.

Sometimes I go rogue and do scrambled egg with fried bread.

I want some eggy bread now, but I have no eggs sad

Wolfcub Fri 10-May-13 22:04:37

I could eat that now

stealthsquiggle Fri 10-May-13 22:08:40

We have eggs (thank you chooks) but no decent bread, stale or otherwise sad

gordyslovesheep Fri 10-May-13 22:09:31

oh I bloody LOVE eggy bread ...with cheese !

idiot55 Fri 10-May-13 22:16:15

tonight I went food shopping and bought eegs , thick white bread, bacon and sausages for tomorrows tea.

PoppyWearer Fri 10-May-13 22:17:42

Yuuuuuum eggy bread!

If my DCs would eat it, it would be a staple of our tea time menu.

<glares at DCs>

grin TheSurgeons - Actually i discovered it at about 14yo after too many biscuit dropping disasters, and then realisation that, when you dunk 2 packs of hazelnut maryland cookies in your tea, there is no tea left to drink < shock at thinking oh yummy now i'll drink my lovely tea and then the horror of realising the bastarding cookies have 'drunk' it all>.

Eggy bread, crispy bacon and maple syrup, there's tomorrows breakfast sorted!

TheSurgeonsMate Sat 11-May-13 12:08:09

So wise at only 14, mrsk!

Dawndonna Sat 11-May-13 12:14:20

Mmmm, eggy bread.
We do a sweet version for pudding sometimes, too.
Dip in egg, then dip in plate of mixed caster sugar/cinnamon, fry. Delicious!

Bacon is grim any time but the rest sounds just fine.
