    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    Besides being one of the most amazing movies I've seen in a while, V for Vendetta features the simplest, most CRAVEABLE breakfast dish I think I've ever seen. In the movie, "V", in his jaunty kitchen apron, so lovingly prepares this charming breakfast dish for Natalie Portman's character. By the movie's end, I was craving so badly, that I made it for our breakfast for the next two days!! Please feel free to use ANY bread you have on hand. I also like to make these on my large nonstick griddle, but you can prepare them 1 or 2 at a time using a non-stick frying pan.

      A nice simple breakfast dish that brings back childhood memories - I used wholemeal/wholegrain bread and toasted one side first in the toaster on crumpet setting and then lightly sprayed a non-stick frypan with oil spray (to cut down saturated fat) put the uncooked side down and put the egg in the whole and also put the cut out bits uncooked side down to brown off and cooked for a few minutes till white was set though my yolk cooked more than I would have liked but only because it broke as it went into the pan but still had a bit of runny yolk to mop up with the cut out bit of toast. Thank you Kosmic Blue for breakfast and averybird for the recommendation, made for I recommend tag game.

      I made this both yesterday and today, and each time it turned out fabulous! I remember trying my hand at this recipe when the movie first came out, but let's just say that it didn't turn out half as good as with this recipe!

      Also, I just wanted to include that I am on a diet. So, I made the following substitutions: low calorie bread, whipped butter, 2% milk, and with egg whites (I used one egg white per basket and it still turned out darned good). I made my husbands with the previous modifications, but I used the egg yolks. We both give the recipe five stars for OUTSTANDING! A must try!

      I'll vouch for this. I love bread toasted on the stove, it's so much better then out of the toaster. So this just made perfect sense one day. Everyone I've made these for loves them. I usually melt some cheese on top once I've flipped the bread.
