Mushroom cheese french toast-savoury recipe
cheese french toast

Morning breakfast time. If I don’t have any Idli, Dosa batter and didn’t preplan any breakfast and I don’t get any idea in the early morning rush…😓Then comes the store-bought bread into my blurred vision when I came out from my confused state. I don’t have a sweet tooth and that too for breakfast…So I decided to do something savoury.

The normal cheese recipes of mac and cheese and baked casserole won’t work on the breakfast table, and that too for my family. And I was looking for some simple ideas. I find some mushrooms, carrot and to my happiness find cottage cheese too. Kids will not say ‘no’ if the recipe includes mushroom and paneer. I feel relieved. I can finally breathe!

We can make cheese french toast in two ways like the normal french toast and a deep-fried version. French toast suits breakfast while bread rolls satisfy the fried cravings of energetic kids.

  • If you prefer the deep-fried version:
    • Egg-2
    • Bread crumbs-1 cup
    • Oil
  • Beat the egg. Dip the bread rolls in the beaten egg and roll them in the breadcrumbs until all sides are covered.
  • Deep fry them in the oil. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

I tried only some of the cheese varieties as my kids are not fond of cheeses. To name some of the cheese varieties, there are Parmesan, Cheddar and Mozarella. I tried block cheese, grated cheese and cheese slices. What I realized is that grated cheese will spoil very quickly after the opening of the pack.

But block cheese will remain for a long time. And the cheese slices are handy (no need to grate) and a separate package of each slice will retain its life longer. Here I used cheddar cheese slices. You can trim off the sides of the bread if you prefer.
