This is a really simple breakfast treat. One that Hans likes to make for us during the weekend. It basically consists of a slice of bread with an egg fried in the middle. Not something you would consider a prime example of fine cooking, but definitely something good! You’ll want to use slightly stale bread, a really fresh egg and definitely some good butter.
So, how do you make this?
Using a round cookie cutter, cut a circle out of the middle of the bread. Melt a good knob of butter in your pan. Let one side of the bread fry to a golden brown. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Turn the bread over and crack the egg into the hole. Allow to cook until the egg is to your liking. I like mine a little runny so this calls for about two to three more minutes frying time. Serve your bread with a glass of juice and some fresh fruit for an easy, complete breakfast.
