Step 1: Ingredients
Bread; one or two slices per person
Eggs; depending on the hole you make in the bread, one or two per slice
Butter; 1/2 Tbsp per egg plus a little more for toasting and sautéing
Mushrooms; as many as you want
Lemon Juice; 1/4 tsp per egg
Note: the lemon juice and butter are for making hollandaise sauce, if you prefer a mix or another recipe then go for it.
Step 2: Make the Toast
When it's good and toasted to your liking, butter the other side and flip it over. Immediately pour the egg whites in the center and allow it to cook through. While that's going, dice the garlic and chop the onions. Heat up a pan of butter and sauté the garlic and mushrooms. Cover(so it stays warm) and set aside. At this point, the egg should be just about cooked (if it's not then flip it over for about 30 seconds with a spatula). Remove from the heat and also cover.
Now time to make the sauce. There are many recipes, they are all similar. And mine goes like this: melt the butter(1/2 Tbsp per yolk), use a double boiler if you have one. If not, get creative; I use a ceramic bowl in a small pot with a little water in the bottom. A microwave is fine for melting the butter, but you'll need something else once you add the eggs. Once it's all melted add the egg yolks and beat vigorously with a wisk, be careful not to cook them to the point of scrambling. When the eggs and butter are well combined, add the lemon juice, salt to taste, and a little sprinkle of paprika. Continue whisking until the sauce is light yellow and about double in volume from when you first added the yolks.
Step 3: Put It All Together
Feel free to change it up as you like, but this meal is best enjoyed hot, so dig in!
