Egg in a heart

I love having breakfast at any time of the day. Kaleb tends to agree as his response of late to what he would like for dinner has been “eggs and toast, mommy”… and “pancakes!”

I have been making this dish ever since I saw the Friend’s episode ( The one where Eddie moves in ). It’s basically egg in a hole, but I like to use a fun cookie cutter to cut out the hole for the egg. This time I used a heart as Valentine’s day is coming and it would make a nice breakfast in bed for your loved one.

RECIPE

1 slice of bread – sourdough or any other, larger is a little bit better to be able to cut out a nice size hole for the egg
1/2 all-cooked sausage cut up free style. I like Aidells organic sausages, especially the spicy ones go nicely with this dish. Sausage can be omitted for a vegetarian option.
1/2 sliced regular tomato or 10 sugar plum tomatoes cut in halves
1 egg
1/4 avocado
salt
pepper
butter
1 tbs olive oil

1) First, slice your tomatoes and sausage.
2) Butter both sides of your  bread slice and then cut out a hole with the cutter of your choice. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, you can just simply use a small glass instead.
3) Break your egg into a cup add a pinch of salt and pepper.
4) Heat up a large teflon pan on medium high, put your toast in and the cut out piece of bread as well, if you wish. Brown the toast on one side, then flip and slowly pour the egg in. Take care to lift up the bottom sides of the toast, so the whites run out a little bit and the yolk can settle nicely inside the hole in your toast. If you were using the cut out part as well, don’t forget to flip that toast as well.
5) Pour the olive oil to the other side of your pan and add the sausages and tomatoes. Sprinkle some salt on your tomatoes. The sausages and tomatoes should brown slightly. Turn them over or stir as you see fit.
6) Gently turn your toast over when the whites are getting done on the bottom side. Keep cooking for about 1 more minute on the other side. If you like your yolk less runny, cook a little bit longer, or if you don’t like any runniness, you can just break the yolk, so it mixes in with the whites.
7) Slowly transfer your toast, sausages and tomatoes to a plate, add the avocado and  you have yourself a feast!

  1. OMG! Your website is so cool. I just had to tell you again. I had to comment on your Egg in a Heart. My Mother and I did for my children too made a circle in the bread and toasted the bread and fried the egg like this too. I love the bread toasted in the butter the best.
