Let me start off by saying that I LOVE the movie V for Vendetta. It is a little too gory for me in some scenes (because I am a huge chicken), but I just pretend I need to get something from another room and come back when the fighting is over. (Natalie Portman is a national treasure)
I digress, the point is that in the movie there is a scene where V makes something he calls Eggy in a Basket. It is simply an egg cooked in a bread slice hole with spices and butter. There really is beauty in simplisity because this recepie is as fabulous as it is quick and easy.
I don’t like runny eggs, at all. I typically cook by eggs until they practically bounce. But I understand that lots of people like them and this recepie will certainly make you happy, no matter where you fall of the yolk spectrum.
- 1 piece of sliced bread
- 1 egg
- Salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder
- Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add a dollop of butter to thinly coat the pan when melted.
- Cut a hole in the slice of bread. If you want more bread, cut about a 2 inch hole. If you want less bread, cut about a 3 or 3.5 inch hole. (The bigger the hole the quicker the egg will cook)
- Put the bread slice on the skillet and then pour the egg into the bread hole. If you like your eggs well done, scramble the yolk gently. If you like runny eggs, leave it alone. You can also cook the bread piece that you removed alongside the egg bread.
- Add a sprinkle of salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, and any other spices you love. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes. (Or less if you want it really runny)
- Flip bread and cook for 2 or 3 minutes depending on level of egg firmness you prefer. Add another sprinkle of spices.
- Serve with a dab of butter on top and any breakfast meat you like on the side.
