My husband makes fabulous omelets, so I don’t bother even trying. Instead, for a special treat for the kids I make Sunshine Toast. It’s basically poached eggs that are baked inside the toast in the oven.
- 1 slice of bread
- Melted butter
- 1 medium egg
- non-stick cooking spray
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- If you are using aluminum foil on your cookie sheet, spray the surface with a non-stick cooking spray or grease well with butter. If you are using a silicone baking mat there is no need to grease the surface.
- Use your microwave to melt some butter. Make sure to use a microwave safe bowl.
- Brush the melted butter on one side of the bread with a pastry brush. Then take the cookie cutter and press it hard into the middle of the slice of bread. Wiggle it back and forth slightly while pressing to make sure you’re cutting through the bread.
- Carefully lift out the shape you have cut out. Lay both pieces of bread on the tray with the butter side up.
- Break the egg into a saucer and remove any pieces of shell. Carefully slide the egg into the hole you have cut.
- Bake for seven minutes on the top rack of the oven, or for a little longer (about 10 minutes) if you don’t like a runny yolk.
- Lift the pieces of bread carefully off the tray. Season with salt and pepper. Eat it while it’s still warm. Use the cut out shapes to dip in the egg yolk.
- If you like cheese with your egg, sprinkle grated cheese on your egg before placing in the oven.
- If you’re watching your calorie or fat intake, substitute 3 egg yolks for 1 whole egg.
- If you’re watching your fat intake, use a low calorie cooking spay on the toast instead of butter.
