  5. Beat the eggs in a seperate bowl and in batches, carefully coat the bread.
  6. In a large heavy based fry pan, add the butter (start with 2 tablespoons) and sizzle over a medium heat until fragrant.
  7. Add 6 - 8 slices of bread (depending on the size of your pan - don't over crowd it) and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. Add more butter for each batch you make.
