DIRECTIONS

  • Toast a piece of white bread lightly in a toaster. Leave it plain (no butter.).
  • Meanwhile, in a very small non-stick skillet LIGHTLY sprayed with Pam, gently crack 1 egg over medium-high heat (don't add salt or pepper). Cover skillet and LISTEN -- When you begin to hear a slight "sizzling sound", turn the heat off and let it sit (covered) on the burner for about 4 minutes. Uncover and check egg -- there should be NO slimy eggwhite on top, and the yolk should be 1/4 done and 3/4 runny.
  • Lay egg flat on top of toast and cut into about 1/2" cubes.
  • Transfer to a bowl and toss gently, letting the soft yolk sort of coat the toast pieces a little bit.
  • NOTE: My kids now love this recipe and ask for it when they are NOT sick -- So in that case, I BUTTER the toast, I melt 1 teaspoons butter in the skillet to cook the egg in, and I salt & pepper the egg too! (Honestly, I still eat this recipe fixed that way when I'M not sick either!) :) I think my Mom would probably frown upon that -- .
