this is one of my favourite ways to eat eggs these days. i get tired of the traditional omelette, the fried or scrambled and certainly the boiled egg. eggs are an important source of vitamin D and other than fish, the only other source that has vitamin D naturally occurring. we need vitamin D to absorb calcium & protect us from chronic disease. they also are high in protein. i love eggs. when i was growing up my mom called these 'toad in the holes' but i recently heard someone call them 'one eyed monsters' which i thought was added motivation to get davith to devour this tasty breakfast or lazy dinner. here's the recipe:
- With a slice of whole wheat bread, cut a circle or other shape out of the middle.
- I was taught to butter both sides of the bread and put it on a hot griddle. However, I stopped doing that years ago. Just spray the pan with some cooking spray so your egg doesn’t stick, and it cooks just fine.
- Crack an egg into the center of the bread slowly to keep the egg within the borders of your hole.
- Flip to the other side.
- After the egg whites are no longer runny, slide the 'one eyed monster' onto a plate. Use the center piece of bread to dip in the yolk.
