  8. Pour the egg and milk mixture all over the bread and let it soak in for a few minutes.  Cover and allow standing time of 30 minutes.
  9. Place in a preheated oven and bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Cool for a few minutes and serve sprinkled with small basil leaves and Serve with Crème Fraiche or natural yogurt.


Cooks Tip: Instead of using tomato ketchup, the base bread slices could be spread with tomato or basil pesto and diced sundried tomatoes sprinkled over the base sausages.
