1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place tomatoes on one of the trays, spray with olive oil and roast for 10 minutes or until skins start to split.
2 Meanwhile, whisk eggs, egg white and milk in a medium bowl. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Set over medium heat.
3 Dip 4 slices bread into egg mixture, coating evenly. Shake off excess mixture. Add bread to pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until crisp and golden.
4 Transfer French toast to other prepared baking tray and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat step 3 with remaining bread, spraying pan with a light coating of olive oil between batches.
5 Place remaining ingredients in a large salad bowl and toss.
6 Top French toast slices with roasted tomatoes and serve with salad.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free bread.
You can switch off the oven after roasting the tomatoes. It will stay hot enough to keep the French toast warm.
