We eat this at dinner, but it can be a breakfast item, too. We never had a name for it, so we just call it fried bread and eggs. It sounds strange to soak the bread in water, but it doesn't come out right if you don't.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak bread in water.
  2. Try to squeeze as much water out as you can.
  3. Fry wet bread, diced onions, salt and pepper in olive oil until crumbly and brown. Keep turning it to avoid it burning. Use medium heat.
  4. Once it's crumbly, add the eggs. Stir until eggs are completely cooked.

I've prepared bread like this for a Peasant Bread Salad and just love it. I fried a clove of garlic along with the onions (yum!) and served my egg on the side rather that mixed in. Good enough for me to make it two days in a row. Made for New Kids on the Block, a tag game.
