Eggs Rothko

Eggs Rothko created by Sharon123

You are a captive audience when aboard a plane flying over the North Atlantic for 6-8 hrs. BUT IcelandAir has a monthly travel magazine I have always found interesting. While thumbing through it last month, I read an article entitled *The Sacred Art of Brunch* that touted 3 restaurants where you could enjoy a “proper, long, drawn-out weekend brunch in New York City”. One of them was aptly named *Egg* where Chef George Weld was said to serve the hands-down, best brunch in Williamsburg with specialties from his South Carolina upbringing. The *Egg* website shared this one recipe and described it as “budget-friendly, kid-friendly, quick and easy”. Enjoy !

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 slices brioche bread or 2 slices challah
  • 2 large eggs (extra-large)
  • 23 cup cheddar cheese (good quality, grated)

directions

  • Place oven rack in lowest position.
  • Preheat oven to broil.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat until it begins to foam.
  • Place brioche slices in the skillet, moving them around until well-buttered and browned.
  • Using a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or drinking glass, press a hole in the center of each bread slice; discard the cutout rounds.
  • Divide the remaining tablespoon of butter between the 2 holes in the bread.
  • When butter begins to foam, crack an egg into each hole.
  • Cook until the egg whites set about halfway up the sides of the yolks.
  • Flip the bread with a spatula and cook for another minute or so.
  • Remove bread from skillet and place onto a broiler pan.
  • Spread grated cheese thoroughly over the bread (covering as much surface area as possible to prevent the bread from burning).
  • Place pan under the broiler.
  • Remove as soon as the cheese melts.
  • Serve with broiled tomatoes or a simply dressed green salad BUT I would want some bacon and fruit added to feel well-fed. :-) .

    Good cheese, good bread and an egg, what's not to love? We really enjoyed this easy, but impressive looking breakfast. I used a good quality sourdough and some extra sharp cheddar along with local eggs. I made mine one at a time in a cast iron skillet so all I had to do it move it into the broiler at the right time. Thanks twissis for the yummy recipe and contrats on your 2010 Football pool win!

    I made this with whole grain artisan bread and cut it nice and thick. I really enjoyed it and the cheese took it to a new level. Thanks Twissis! Made for your football win!

    A very simple dish,that is very tasty.I used to cook something very similar when I used to get home after a night out at the pub.I just used to toast or fry some bread,top it with a fried egg and melt a couple of slices of cheese over the top.Not as stylish or elegant by any means,I accept,but just as yummy. This is definately the version that you use for company!!
