Eggs like Mom used to make

My fondest memories of a child was having my mom to myself - being one in nine siblings, this was not always an easy task. But on those rare occasions when it was too rainy, or I wasn't feeling well, I was treated to breakfast with Mom. Eggs over-easy sandwiched between to pieces of toasted bread seemed easy enough, but add the yoke, mayo and cheese and you have a party. When the mayo and yoke and the seasonings interact, your taste buds will absolutely flip. It's a bit messy, so keep a napkin near by.

I hope you will enjoy this easy to make recipe as much as I have as a child, and continue to make for myself and family. Peace. Kawi.

Step by step guide to eggs and toast

  1. Lets start off with your favorite little frying pan, and a quality brand of non-stick spray. Coat generously with the spray so that your eggs do not stick to the pan - this is important since the goal is not to over cook the yoke.
  2. Place toast into the toaster, it will take roughly the same time for your eggs to be done. Start frying your eggs at medium heat - whatever you're used to cooking your eggs on is fine.
  3. Once your eggs start to solidify, make sure that the eggs are loose on the pan and not sticking. With one motion, smoothly roll your eggs over as if you're doing a flip on a flap-jack, but only roll your eggs over... or I suppose you could use a spatula. Gently though, try not to break the yoke.
  4. Your toast should be popping up by now, and you can quickly spread on mayonaise or butter. Plate your toast and prepare for the egg to go on one side of the toast.
  5. Let the eggs cook for a little more while you finish spreading mayo or butter over your toast. Sprinkle your favorite seasoninigs onto the egg, and add your slice/sprinkle of cheese on to the eggs while they are still in the hot pan.
  6. Slide your eggs with the cheese already starting to melt right onto a slice of toast. Cap your eggs off with another slice of toast with mayo spread.
  7. Use a knife to slice down the middle of your eggs in toast to make things more manageable and less messy. But hey, if you're adventurous, leave it un-cut and let the yoke fly. Top this meal off with a tall glass of milk, and you've got yourself a hearty breakfast that will give you energy to burn through out your day.

      Yep, I reckon even I could manage this Kawi! And all the ingredients appeal. (Though turning an egg without breaking the yolk is for me about as difficult as putting toothpaste back into a tube). :-)

      Gives me a desire to make some egg-in-toast for myself. Too late tonight, but maybe tomorrow! Cheers, Alun

      This looks good. My wife makes eggs in toast where she cuts a hole in the middle of the bread and cooks it. I'll get her to check this out and some other recipes you have. She's a great cook and I'm great at eating. Thanks. :o)
