    You've got us all wondering now. Dippy bread - is this where you dip slices of bread into beaten egg and fry it? Haven't made it for ages, but think I may just have to rush into the kitchen and thrash a few eggs into submission.

    If it's like what MB describes, it sounds like what we Yanks call French toast. Not deep fried, though. But still yummy. Now I'm getting peckish again

    We Brits are supposed to call it French Toast too ... don't know what part of the world Dawn, Nick, MB etc. get their recipes from.

    Can't wait myself to hear what it is all about. Someone send Nick a PM!!!

    I always thought the English called French Toast 'eggy bread.' So what is eggy bread then?

    Come to think of it ...

    Sure my Mum called it 'eggy bread'. Guess It's just me ... had a mixed up Brit/Kiwi childhood and have since never been quite sure where I am.

    Yes, eggy bread. That's what I call it but not sure if it's the same as Nick's dippy bread. Can't think what else you could dip bread in. Hubster calls it French bread, so maybe a Scottish thing, if you get my meaning ?

    I just had it for lunch but skimped on the egg - cholesterol problem and I think I short-changed myself as it was a bit dry. There are cholesterol-free eggs for sale here, which we normally buy, but I just had ordinary ones in. Anyone heard of these or do you reckon it's just a skam? Supposed to be from Dubai.

    I always thought French toast was like dry pre-toasted bread that you can buy in the supermarkets - very crisp.

    Here we go the official verdict . Some interesting sounding recipes, too.
