Eggs and bread, what can you want more on a (study) morning? Well, maybe eggs in the bread, instead of just on them (for that little extra fancyness, although I am not sure if that word even exists).If you’re sick of the good ole ‘fried egg on bread’, this is a super quick, yet slightly fancy (because different layout) option that has been a family favorite for many years. Can you imagine how well you can smear that egg yolk all over the bread? Hmmm. Add some fresh fruit and you’ll have a super power breakfast (carbs, protein and vitamins) that’ll last you through the day. And yes mom, I could’ve added some cucumber instead of the kiwi to have less sugars but sometimes you just need sweet. Don’t we all?
The only thing that could maybe be counted as difficult would be cutting the hole into the bread. You can use a glass as ‘bread cutter’, that works pretty well. Use a bread that’s large enough because you want the border to stay intact, otherwise the egg will spill.
Mine was over-easy (so the yolk stays runny), but you can easily do a sunny-side up one, it just takes a little longer for the egg to set. And because it needs all this cutlery it can be counted as a real meal, not just a snack, right? How do you like your eggs? Sunny side up or over easy? Or rather scrambled eggs?
egg-scelent breakfast bread
This is what you need
1 slice of bread
1 small piece of butter (for the pan)
1 glass to cut out the hole (use a glass that is small enough to leave a wide border around the hole so the bread won’t rip
salt if you want.
And this is how we do it
1. Cut a hole into the bread with the glass (make sure that the borders of the bread stay intact. You can eat the leftover bread (from the hole) right away or give it a quick heat-up in the pan to make it nice and toasty.
2. Heat the butter in the frying pan, fry the holed bread until it’s nicely brown on the downside.
3. Flip it over, crack the egg into the hole (it might spill a bit, but if you press the bread town into the pan with your spatula you can usually prevent this).
4. If you want sunny side up eggs: Let the egg fry until the whole egg-white has set
If you want over easy: Flip the egg after 2 minutes of baking (when it’s slightly coloured from underneath but the top is not all set yet) and fry for one more minute.
5. Sprinkle some salt on (optional) and enjoy your egg-scelent breakfast bread.
