Okay, so like I said in the previous post, I made eggs in a frame today. Usually eggs in a frame consists of normal piece of sandwich bread with a hole in the middle and then you would crack the egg in the middle of the bread, thus frying the egg. Well this morning I decided to make a more tasty version of that easy on the go breakfast. Here we have a one inch slice of french bread toasted/fried with a poached egg in the middle. Pardon my iPhone photography but this tastes a lot better than it looks.
For this recipe you will need:
- 1- 1″ Slice of French Bread
- 1/2 cup- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp- jama-spice ( Equal Parts Rosemary, Thyme, Dill Weed, Basil, and Salt)
- 1- egg
Coat each side of the bread with a liberal amount of EVOO, about 1/4 cup. Then sprinkle the jama-spice onto both sides of the bread. In a medium frying pan add the remaining EVOO over high heat. Cut a small hole in the middle of the bread so that it makes a frame, hence the name Eggs in a Frame. Toast both sides of the bread in the frying pan for about a minute and a half.
Meanwhile, boil some water in a saucepan with a pinch of salt. By the time the water reaches a boil the bread should be done. Crack one egg into the boiling water being careful not to get any scalding water on you. (I did) Boil the egg for about 2 minutes or until foam starts to build on the surface of the water. Carefully remove the egg from the water with a slotted spoon (spoon with holes) and place inside the bread frame. Enjoy 🙂
