Serves 2 adults and 2 children


4 slices Vogel’s bread, crusts removed and sliced into soldiers  

2 eggs 

2 tablespoons milk 

Butter, for frying 

Mascarpone, to serve 

For the blueberry sauce 

150g blueberries 

1 tablespoon caster sugar 


  1. Make the blueberry sauce by combining the blueberries, sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a small saucepan. Allow to bubble over low heat for 5 minutes, or until there’s plenty of syrupy juice and the blueberries have softened a little. Set aside. 
  2. In a shallow bowl, beat together the eggs and milk using a fork. Dip the soldiers into the egg mixture, making sure they are well coated. 
  3. Melt a generous knob of butter in a frying pan. Fry the soldiers until lightly golden on both sides. Remove and drain on kitchen paper. 
  4. Serve whilst still warm topped with mascarpone and blueberry sauce.
