Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Ingredients (to serve four):

4 slices of thickly sliced tiger bread

2 eggs

200ml milk

1 tbsp butter

30g soft rindless goats cheese

100g thick goats cheese yoghurt

1 tsp lemon zest

2 pears

Honey, to serve

Pinch of salt

STEP ONE: Make the French toast mixture

Start by toasting your slices of tiger bread. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and milk, and a pinch of salt, then dunk your slices of toast into the mixture, making sure they are well covered. Heat half the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat.

STEP 2: Prepare the goats curd

While the butter is melting, mix together your goats yoghurt and the softened goats cheese. Add some lemon zest to the mixture and stir.

STEP 3: Fry the French toast

Once your butter has melted and the pan is hot add your first two slices of French toast. Leave for a couple of minutes until golden brown and then flip. Continue cooking the toast on the other side for a couple of minutes. If you pan is small you can cook the toast in batches.

STEP 4: Prepare the pear

While the toast cooks on the second side, cut the pears into quarters and cut out the core, then slice into thin slices.

STEP 5: Serve up

Serve the French toast hot with a big dollop of the goats yoghurt mixture, a few slices of pear and a generous drizzle of honey.
