- Break the eggs into a bowl. Whisk along with the milk and a pinch of salt. Cut the Penny Loaves horizontally in thirds and soak in the mixture for 1 minute. Heat the butter and oil in a shallow frying pan. Add the coated soda bread and cook lightly on either side, turning once. Cooking should take only a couple of minutes in total. Use a little kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil.
- Place the bacon straight on to the pan and fry for 2-4 minutes each side or until your preferred crispiness is reached. Serve the toasts layered with the crispy bacon and the syrup poured over the loaf.
Tip: this recipe also works slightly stale Penny Loaves, just slice up and soak the bread for 30 seconds extra.
