  1. Step 1

    Whisk the eggs, milk, parmesan and mustard in a shallow bowl. Season. Place 2-3 slices of bread in the egg mixture for 2 mins each side, pressing down occasionally. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining bread.

  2. Step 2

    Melt half the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add half the bread. Cook for 2 mins each side or until golden. Transfer to a baking tray and lightly cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter and bread.

  3. Step 3

    To make the garlic-butter mushrooms, melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 secs or until aromatic. Add the mushroom and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the mushroom is tender and liquid evaporates. Add half the spinach and rocket and cook for 1 min or until spinach and rocket just wilts.

  4. Step 4

    Divide French toast among serving plates and top with the mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with extra parmesan. Season with pepper and serve with the remaining spinach and rocket mixture.
