Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 hot cross buns, sliced in half
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Brown sugar, for serving
  • Fresh berries, for serving
  • Fresh berries, for serving

Directions

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Add the milk. Beat together the eggs and milk with a fork until combined.

Place a skillet over medium heat to warm up. When hot, add ½ tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet, and swirl the pan so that it is coated in oil.

Dip one half of a hot cross bun into the egg mixture. Turn it over a few times to make sure it is well-coated. Lift the bun out the bowl, and allow the excess mixture to drip off. Lower the bun into the skillet, being careful not to let the not oil splash on you.

Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through. Lift the bun out the skillet and repeat the dipping and frying process with the remaining bun halves.

Serve warm, topped with sugar, berries, and yogurt.
