Directions

Soak the bread in the milk on both sides to soften, about 5 minutes per side, depending on how hard the bread is. (If it is softer, it may need less time.)

Beat the egg with salt, pepper, and herbes de Provence in a flat or shallow dish.

Gently melt the butter in a frying pan until foaming, but not colored. Pull the bread from the milk and turn it around in the egg mixture to coat.

Fry on both sides until golden brown. Eat with a spoonful of tomato jam, or, if you're desperate, ketchup.

    Not being a sweet breakfast person - I fell in love with this recipe. It is savory and exploding with fresh flavor and can be enjoyed at any meal. The best way to describe it is "one of life's simple pleasures"

    Fabulous. You're making me a real fan of cooking French! Had to dig but found a Spanish tomato fruit preserve by Helios in the international section of the groc. store. I followed the recipe and used 2 eggs, had extra, then couldn't "waste" anything and dumped all the egg into the skillet as well! So perfectly yummmmmm
    Loved the savory and the sweet! *but not too sweet!
