A quick breakfast dish that is low in fat, cholesterol free, high in protein, and sure to please children and adults alike. I created this recipe from the egg toast my mom used to make with butter, white bread, and eggs, simply variating it to my preferences. It tastes exactly like hers, only I feel better eating it knowing that it's good for me.
- 2 slices whole wheat bread, without hydrogenated oil (I prefer Nature's Own)
- spray butter
- egg substitute
- nonstick cooking spray
- salt and pepper
- Heat a medium frying pan on medium heat after spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
- Rip a hole in the middle of each slice of bread using a cookie cutter or just your fingers.
- Next, spray one side of each piece of bread and one side of the torn out bread with spray butter.
- Once the skillet is hot, place the bread on the skillet buttered side down and pour enough egg substitute into the hole to fill it.
- Put the torn out bread in the skillet buttered side down and spray the exposed sides of all the bread with spray butter.
- Once the bottom of the egg is set and the bread has turned a golden brown, sprinkle some salt and pepper onto it, if you like, and turn bread over with a spatula.
- Once the torn out bread has turned golden brown, turn it also.
- This may occur before the egg toast or after, you must simply check.
- Allow all bread to become golden brown and egg to become set, and serve alone or with other breakfast items.
I'd rate this 6 stars if I could. Its wonderful, especially for those of us who have problems with eating eggs. Very easy to make, One variation I made was to add a pinch of your favourite herb or a drop or two of tabasco sauce to the egg substitute. This make it really interesting.
This has been a favorite for years! We call it "egg in the eye." By cutting the "eye" 30% larger than in the photos here, we fit a whole egg in each center. Taking the toast off the griddle while the yolk is a bit soft provides a wonderfully tasty and colorful meal! Oh, and anyone not on a diet will love the taste of real butter instead of the spray. :)
This was a cute little recipe! I cut the holes with the bottom (or top) of a cup ... I'm not sure what it's called, but it has holes on both ends!! Anyway, I used Pam instead of spray butter when spraying the bread... I cooked them together in the pan, but I think I should have done one at a time while holding down the bread around the hole. As it was, when I poured in the egg substitute (I used 1/4 cup of All Whites, to which I added chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper), it flowed under the bread and I sort of ended up with one side of French toast, and just a thin film of egg substitute in the hole! It didn't affect the taste at all, it just didn't look as pretty. Thanks for posting!
