Charred eggy bread with strawberries and honey

Chicken and the egg - wich comes first? That is our cooking theme for this week at IHCC. It really is an age old question! And in my eyes whe probably will never now the real answer to that question. Whe can only presume, like the other age old questions of al exsistance on earth. Every religion at least thinks to now the answers, but there are more books then i can count on this particulair subject. In all the simple things i do know the eggs first and then is the chicken...But where they really came from, i don't want to know because it will drive me grazy;)

recipe can be found here
serves: 4


• 2 eggs, preferably free-range or organic, beaten
• 50ml full-fat milk
• a good dash of limoncello
• 4 thick slices of stale sourdough or Italian bread
• 2 tablespoons caster sugar, plus a little extra
• 250g strawberries, halved
• 200g ricotta, sliced or crumbled
• runny honey
• grated lemon zest, to serve

Mix the beaten egg with the milk and a dash of limoncello in a shallow dish. Dip the bread slices into the mixture and shake off the excess. Sprinkle the slices with the caster sugar then cook on the barbecue for a couple of minutes on each side until golden.

Dust the strawberries with caster sugar and grill them really quickly, just until the sugar on the outside of them browns. Top the warm bread with ricotta and the grilled strawberries.

Drizzle with honey and decorate with lemon zest.

Notes: I did'nt used the barbecue but a grillpan one the stove and that worked just fine to make the bread. Left out the lemon zest(did'nt had any at home), but used a bigger splash of limoncello to compensade for that. All the flavours where amazing together, real threat! Great as a dessert after a barbecue or just for lunch.
