INGREDIENTS
 

8 slices of SASKO Low GI Seeded Whole Wheat Brown Bread 

2 tbsp oil

1 medium onion, finely sliced

2 cloves garlic, crushed 

200g spinach, chopped

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

¼ cup feta

2 cups milk

5 eggs

¼ tsp salt 

¼ tsp paprika 

¼ tsp ground black pepper


Serving suggestion:
Parsley, finely chopped

 

METHOD
 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 30x20cm baking dish with grease-spray

  2. Cut each slice of the SASKO Low GI Seeded Whole Wheat Brown Bread into smaller cubes, leaving the crust on. Add the bread cubes to a mixing bowl.

  3. In a non-stick frying pan, sauté the onions in 2 tablespoons of oil until soft. Add the garlic and spinach and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes.

  4. Combine the spinach mix, ¾ cup of the grated cheese and the feta with the bread cubes and tumble this mixture into the prepared baking dish. Set aside.

  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, salt, paprika and black pepper. Pour the milk mixture over the bread and filling, ensuring that it is well covered.

  6. Scatter the rest of the cheese over the top of the French toast bake before placing it in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.  *Chef’s Tip: Cover the dish with foil if it gets too dark.

  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, cut into squares, serve and ENJOY!
