Beat the eggs, milk and chives together and season. Add the butter and oil to the pan and heat until bubbling.

Dip 2 – 3 slices of bread in the egg mixture and fry over moderate heat until golden on each side (about 30 seconds a side). Remove and place on paper towel and fry the rest. Keep the others warm by placing in a warmer drawer or a low oven.

Cut toasts in half on the diagonal and pile onto plates with a generous amount of bacon, banana and a good drizzle of maple syrup!
