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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Heat a skillet and add a tablespoon of vegetable oil.
- Spread the oil about fairly evenly and lay the holed slice of bread gently on.
- 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.
- 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.
- Cook till you’re satisfied with the doneness. Sarah thinks part-cooked-part-runny is the best way egg yolks should be done.
- And of course, have it with fresh (or not-so-fresh) rocket leaves.
Happy mornings, forever.
