Italian Egg Toasts

Easy & Delicious Egg Toasts

You know what separates a bad cook from a good cook? It’s not culinary school, or fancy gadgets. It’s the art of being able to make something really simple taste really wonderful. Sometimes editing a dish to just a few beautiful ingredients and highlighting them with basic cooking techniques is the key to creating a really special meal.

And these Italian egg toasts, they do that. A few insanely easy steps make bread, eggs and herbs a crave-able, stunning breakfast. All you need to prep this dish is a drinking glass and a frying pan.

Hot Breakfast in 5 minutes

Italian egg toasts are perfect for the end of the week because you can dress them up with whatever’s leftover in the fridge, from roasted vegetables, salsas, any protein, fresh vegetables, a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, avocado, or a sprinkle of cheese (my fav is Parmesan).

So the trick to this is using your drinking glass to press and twist out a circle of bread, and then fill that hole with an egg. I like mine a tad runny to dip that circle of bread into, and my sons like them cooked a bit more firm. You can adjust your cook time to fit your egg preference. This dish only takes 5 minutes MAX from start to finish!
