Egg In The Basket

Inspired greatly by the film ‘V for Vendetta’, I decided to make this for breakfast.

Okay, I didn’t make this. Sarah did.

It features her meticulous nature, her love for rocket leaves and a slice of her super-seeded loaf of bread.

  1. Gather what you need to do this: a slice of bread, an egg and an empty glass. Oh, and a little bit of veggie oil.
  2. Make a hole in the slice of bread with the glass, not too big, not too small. Take care not to break the hole after making it. Handle gently.
  3. Heat a skillet and add a tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  4. Spread the oil about fairly evenly and lay the holed slice of bread gently on.
  5. Crack the egg into the hole. If you’re particular, like Sarah, crack the yolk on at the end so it’s in the middle.
  6. Put the lid onto the skillet. If your skillet doesn’t come with a cover, use a plate. We do this because we don’t like eating raw eggs; the heat generated in the skillet will cook the top of the egg.
  7. Cook till you’re satisfied with the doneness. Sarah thinks part-cooked-part-runny is the best way egg yolks should be done.
  8. And of course, have it with fresh (or not-so-fresh) rocket leaves.

Happy mornings, forever.
