Egg Centered…..in a piece of toast!
These have been called anything and everything…well, not literally anything and everything…
Not those words specifically. 🙂
However, many years ago, I started making this as a way to get my kids to eat eggs.
And you know what?
It worked….they do like and eat eggs for breakfast!
Although Twin #1 would still prefer a Waffle loaded with Syrup and Butter….and Twin # 2 would still prefer Biscuits, loaded down with Sausage Gravy.
If they were given a choice, that is.
If no choice is available, they like egg centered in a piece of toast.
It is also a quick way to make eggs and toast.
The egg can be whole or scrambled. Hard or Soft….
The skillet doesn’t care! 😉
I made these the other day and the Captain thought it was a special occasion as I added a couple strips of crisp, hickory smoked bacon and a few strawberries, a sprig of mint from my herb garden and lots of coffee….hot tea for me!
I said it was special….;)
Actually, it was quick and easy to prepare.
One of those breakfasts that are a snap to make when you don’t have a lot of time.
These can also be made for an on-the-go egg sandwich.
Just cook the egg to the hard stage (or not) and wrap in aluminum foil, grab a cup of coffee and you are good to go. 🙂
Below are the simple steps….it is a piece of cake!
OK…it is not cake…but you get my meaning! 🙂
Using a cookie cutter, cut the “hole” out of the piece of bread of choice. (Save the circles for crust-less sandwiches or for croutons)
In a non stick skillet, spray with cooking spray or brush the underside of the “holed” bread.
Brown lightly on one side.
Flip the bread over and add a egg to the center.
Spice it up with salt and pepper and a little cayenne pepper.
Cook until the desired doneness of the egg….hard, soft, over medium or sunny side up.
Serve with crisp bacon, orange juice and black coffee and you have a “special breakfast” that was so easy it almost cooks itself. 🙂
Now, how simple was that? 🙂
- 4 fresh eggs
- 4 slices of bread...your choice
- butter or cooking spray
- salt and pepper to taste
- cayenne pepper (optional)
- Cut center out of bread with a cookie cutter.
- Spray a large non stick skillet with cooking spray or butter the bread.
- Brown one side of each slice of bread over medium heat. (If making a sunny side up egg, brown the other sides too)
- Carefully break an egg into each hole in the bread (toast now)
- Season and cook to desired done-ness.
- Serve with bacon. orange juice, and coffee.
- If you want your eggs over medium...carefully flip the toast and egg at the same time.
- Yummy! And it doesn't hurt that it is a clever way to have your toast and egg too...:)
