Starry Egg Toast

I can never decide what I want to eat for breakfast. Maybe because its too early in the morning, and I'm still "booting" (read half asleep) most days! So to come up with a nice fancy breakfast for family/ friends is a BIG deal for me. I'd rather do something super simple and pass it for something fancy. Here is my take on the simple egg in a toast, made to look fancy-shmancy :)

Cook time: 5-7 minutes
Serves: 1-2 persons
2 slices of bread (Any bread you like)
2 eggs
Butter/ oil spray
Salt to taste
Pepper 1 pinch
Cheese (optional)
1 star shaped cookie cutter

  • Set a non-stick griddle/ pan on medium heat. Brush/ spray a little bit of butter/ oil.
  • Using the cookie cutter, cut out a star in the center of one bread slice, wiggle gently to get a star shaped hole in the slice. Repeat for the remaining slice. Save the star shaped bread.
  • Lightly toast the bread and the star shaped piece on the griddle/ pan. Flip both onto the other side. 
  • Gently break an egg into the star shaped hole. Reduce heat to low. Cover with a lid.
  • Uncover and remove from heat when egg is done to the consistency you desire. Gingerly slide the Starry Egg toast into a plate. 
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, cheese etc. Serve hot.
