Eggs and toast have long been considered breakfast staples, but sometimes they can get a bit routine. In an effort to switch things up a bit I decided to try nesting my egg into the toast as I cooked it. Not only does this make for an easier prep process, but it cuts down on the time you spend standing over the stove since you cook your breakfast all at one time. And the sooner I can get food in my belly each morning the better :)
And if you have little ones this is a breakfast you can get get them in on as well. I used a glass to cut out the little hole in the toast, but you could certainly use different shaped cookie cutters to do so. Stars or hearts, anyone?
It's already set up perfectly for you to dip that
toast into the egg.
Eggs and Toast with a Twist CCK Original
1 slice of bread
1 Tbsp butter
Use glass or cookie cutter to cut out desired shape in toast. Either discard the portion you cut out or save it to cook alongside the "nested egg".
Melt butter in pan over medium high heat. Place bread in pan and crack egg into opening. Cook approximately 1-2 minutes or until egg is beginning to set.
Butter bubbling to perfection.
Almost ready to flip...
Gently use a spatula to flip the toast, being careful not to break the yolk. Cook for approximately 1 minute on other side. You want the white of the egg to be set, but the yolk to still be runny. Think eggs over easy style.
When it looks like this it's done. Be careful not to over cook
though because the yolk will no longer be runny.
Remove from pan and serve immediately.
