EGGS IN A FRAME
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 1 slice
- bread (your favorite white, whole wheat, sour dough etc.)
- 1-2 Tbsp
- salted butter
- 1 large
- salt and pepper to taste
- fresh parsley or chives for garnish (optional)
1Place bread on a clean, flat surface and, using a 3 inch diameter biscuit cutter or rim of a drinking glass, very firmly press into bread and twist to cut through bread. Remove and reserve the round of bread.
2Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat.
3Remove from heat and add the bread "frame" and the round.
4Turn the frame and round over to coat both sides with the melted butter, then return skillet to medium heat.
6Watch carefully and flip the round, to brown both sides, and turn over the egg in the frame when the white is almost completely opaque (about 1 1/2-2 minutes.)
7Reduce heat to low and cook for about 15-30 seconds (according to the yolk firmness you prefer.)
8Remove to warm plate and season as desired. Black truffle sea salt is highly recommended (the "real" stuff is available at myspicesage.com.)
