One Pan Egg Toast Recipe For One (French Toast Omelette Sandwich Recipe)

One pan egg toast was a viral recipe everyone was making on TikTok at one point. Because I'm moving flats this week and had too little time to organise an elaborate bake and related content, it was the perfect opportunity to test this easy 'breakfast hack' out.

I used a thick slice of shokupan (Japanese fluffy white bread) for my one pan egg toast, also known as French toast omelette sandwich. I also added a few extras like vegan bacon-style rashers, spicy gochujang, cheese and a spring onion to make it more brunch-y. It was an excellent combination, but feel free to swap in and out other classic breakfast components to make your perfect sandwich.

You can also watch me make this on my YouTube channel:

(Serves one.)


Bacon/vegan 'fakeon'
1 thick slice of bread
2 eggs
1 tsp gochujang / your favourite hot sauce
1 slice of cheese (mozzarella or cheddar)
1 small spring onion, chopped


1. Fry the bacon/fakeon with a little vegetable oil in a pan until crispy, and set aside on a plate. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula to get rid of any bits sticking on, but don't remove the bits.

2. Cut the slice of bread in half to make two rectangles, and beat the two eggs in a bowl.

3. Add a little more oil to the pan and heat up on a medium heat. Dip the bread slices in the egg and place them in the pan, with about 2cm of space between the slices (placed so the long, cut sides face each other).

4. Pour the rest of the beaten egg into the pan so it surrounds the bread slices,. Cook for a minute or two, or until the surface of the omelette surrounding the bread appears to be congealed and not watery any more.

5. Flip the whole thing over, and fold in the edges of the omelette inwards onto the bread so you have a neat square shape. Top with the rest of your fillings (including the bacon you cooked and set aside), and sandwich the two slices together. Serve while still hot.

Enjoy, and have fun.
