ROTI JOHN (ASIAN FRENCH TOAST)

Breakfast recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

My son is craving for something simple yet fulfilling meal called Roti John.  This is an Asian style savory french toast. It is made with bread topped with a mixture of onion, red chili, garlic, minced meat or chicken and eggs are added as a binding agent. Season well with black pepper and salt. This goes straight to your kitchen for pan frying until golden brown. I used canned sardine this time.

Making Roti John is simple. I do not have to make the dough, just need to use bread as the base preferably baguette or hot dog bun. Now if you do not have baguette at home, you can use your normal bread, it will do just fine. Highly recommended to use wholemeal bread for a healthier choice.

Normally they are eaten with chili sauce but my son loves to eat them on its own. It is so fast and satisfying!


ROTI JOHN (ASIAN FRENCH TOAST)
Yield  :   8 slices

8 slices white bread/baguette
3 medium size canned sardines,  bone removed
2 big onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 fresh red chili chopped
2 eggs lightly beaten
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying
freshly ground black pepper
chili sauce/tomato ketchup (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Dice  the sardines with a fork.

In a bowl, combine onion, red chili, garlic  and sardine.



Add in beaten egg, salt and black pepper, stir until well combined.

Heat a  flat pan and drizzle with oil, spread 1-2 tablespoon of filling on the bread.

Place the bread  in pan, filling side down, cook until golden brown. Flip and toast the other side.

Remove from heat and complete the rest of the bread.

Serve hot with or without chili sauce.

I never heard of Asian French toast...this is something that I would like to try, the only problem is that my husband will have to eat something else since he does not like sardines...
Thanks for the inspiration and hope you are having a great week :D

A Savoury French Toast like this is right up my alley. Can I substitute something else for the sardines?
