Egg in a Nest
This morning's breakfast was one of my favorites growing up. It's a step up from regular fried eggs and toast because the egg is fried in a little hole cut out of the bread. We normally used a drinking glass to punch the hole in our perfectly square supermarket bread, but since my sourdough is so oblong, I cut a freeform rectangle with a knife instead. The best part is the little cutout from the bread, which gets fried alongside in the sizzling butter. Mmm.
I bet this would make a tasty stuffed French toast, with a little dusting of cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup and some roasted pecans... Can't wait to try it!
