Twin Sun Toast
This looks like a twist on the breakfast my husband makes me every morning! Eggs and toast….yummy!
First, two 2-inch round holes are cut into each slice of (wide) sourdough bread.
Then I made sure I had everything on hand and ready to go before firing up the stove: butter, bread with holes, and eggs.
Once the butter is melted in the pan, the sourdough bread is added. An egg is broken into each of the two holes.
The first time I did this, it worked perfectly. With the second piece of bread, though, I was not as successful. The second time around the yolk floated up a bit, so it wasn’t sitting right on the bottom of the pan. Instead there was egg whites in between, which means I couldn’t see the yolks at all once they were finished cooking.
Once the clear whites turn opaque, the bread is flipped and cooked for a few more minutes. This is probably the hardest part of the recipe, because the eggs want to slide right out of those bread holes.
Be aware that only one side of your toast will look like the twin suns, while the other side will look like one big fried egg covering the bread completely. A thicker slice of bread might prevent this from happening, or perhaps making larger holes in the first place.
The sourdough bread is what bumped this up to a 10/10, otherwise it would just be another eggs and toast meal.
The yolks were nice a runny while the whites were cooked through completely. Though it did take a bit longer than 1-2 minutes per side, as stated in the recipe, to cook the eggs properly.
Difficulty: Easy / Average
The only part that might bump the difficulty up from “easy” to “average” is flipping the bread so that the eggs don’t slip out of the bread holes. If you can get through that part, everything else is easy!
All you need is sourdough bread, eggs, and butter!
