This is the perfect option when you are low on supplies. Slightly stale bread is even advised when making french toast!

Why not try our cinnamon french toast bites or berrylicious french toast.
Breakfast in bed: Waffles
Although they are often eaten as a dessert, waffles are an easy to make breakfast food - and they taste amazing!
