This is a fun looking breakfast that I always make for kids. I call them t.v. eggs because they are shaped like a t.v. The kids always love the idea of it and enjoy the taste just as much! Serve with fresh fruit. Note: if you don;t want to use butter, it can be easily substituted with margarine or any other substitute.
- 1. Prep bread by cutting circles into centers of each piece of bread about the size of an egg yolk. Butter each piece of bread with 1/2 tablespoons butter. Set aside.
- 2. Grease a medium frying pan with non fat no stick cooking spray and crack 1 egg into pan as if you are making a sunny side up egg. Let cook very slightly until the egg is stable. Add salt and pepper onto egg.
- 3. Cover the egg with the piece of buttered bread, buttered side up, so that the yolk polks up un-broken through the whole in the bread. After egg has cooked sufficiently, flip over onto other side of pan and let cook for an additional 30 seconds.
- 4. Repeat with other egg. Enjoy!
I remember Cher making these in her Oscar-winning performance in "Moonstruck". I have made these before for my kids and grand kids but your recipe makes it much simpler, thank you. Just an idea for the grown-ups...if you sprinkle a little garlic powder on top of the buttered side, these are really yummy.
This got a BIG 5 stars from our little angel and since she's a picky eater that's saying a lot. It was so easy and fun to put together I was even able to make it while she was sitting there helping. The toast came out nice and toasted with the butter and the great part was the egg was soft enough that when it was all cut up it was just the way she likes her eggs and toast mixed - but she loved the idea that it was TV eggs. I followed the directions exactly even using the butter and wouldn't change a thing. Made for P-A-R-T-Y 09 event.
My kids like eggs and toast in the morning. This is a clever presentation.
