  • 4 eggs

  • cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon butter, plus more as needed

  • 4 slices whole wheat bread


  1. Whisk eggs, Parmesan cheese, milk, and black pepper in a shallow bowl until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

  3. Dip both sides of each slice of bread in egg mixture; place bread in hot butter in the skillet. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  4. Transfer to a warmed plate and dot with butter to serve.


I do not add salt to the mixture as Parmesan cheese is quite salty. However, it can be added if you wish for a saltier dish.
