      Thank you so much for a blast from the past nochlo. I use to make these for my son, when he was little. It was the only way I could get him to eat eggs. This is a great recipe, quick and easy to make, with ingredients always found in the kitchen. The bread was nicely grilled with a lovely runny egg. It was scrumptious. I will be enjoying this again, when my granddaughter comes for our next sleepover. I'll have to ask her daddy if he has made these for her yet. I used a nice bread and extra large eggs. Thanks for sharing.
