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.
- Soak bread in water.
- Try to squeeze as much water out as you can.
- 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.
- 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.
