I haven't posted food in quite a while.
My second novel (STILL in the works) is about a chef so food is on my mind when I'm writing it.
So, it stands to reason that this recipe has nothing to do with the book. I just think it's a creepy looking thing that kids love and there are only 3 ingredients.
I figured, meh, what the hell? I'll post it.
Bread (big enough to still have bread around the edges after you cut a hole in it)
Salt and Pepper (I don't count these as ingredients. I just don't.)
Melt a couple TBLSP of butter in a skillet, Cut holes in however many pieces of bread you're going to eat. I use a 2 inch biscuit cutter. Or, is it 3 inch? Like I'm an engineer? Just get a hole about this big in your bread. Plop them into the sizzling butter. Let them toast a few seconds.
After a bit, break one egg into each hole. Salt and pepper to taste and let them toast longer. I just keep peeking underneath till I think it's toasty enough. Then, (here's my favorite part) put a couple more TBLSPS of butter in the skillet and turn the bread over, making sure the butter gets underneath it.
Now you just sit there and wait.
I like mine to look like this. You can let them cook as long or as little as you want, depending on how you like the yolk. Way runny (gag) semi runny (yum) or stiff as a board (better than way runny).
These little jewels are the bread holes. I wouldn't discourage you from throwing them in the skillet and smooshing them around in the melted butter until they're adorable little rounds of toasted goodness.
This was hubby's. He likes a runnier yolk. But you get the drift. How easy is this?
My upcoming novel Flesh of My Flesh stars Delilah, a fictional TV Chef who stirs up a whole lot of trouble and a little food. Probably better than you'll find here. These recipes are inspired by her, my love of food and overall laziness.
