I recently saw a recipe on Crazy Adventures in Parenting for a baked egg toast with cheese. I tried it and loved it, so I've made a tutorial for you guys along with a how-to video.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next gather up your ingredients:
- Sliced bread, a bit thicker than normal sandwhich bread.
- Cheese (i'm using a blend of four mexican cheeses, i believe)
- Room temperature eggs, the same number as the number of bread slices you have
- A small bit of butter or vegetable oil
That's all you need! If your eggs aren't at room temperature, put them in warm but not scalding water for about 5 minutes, or they won't cook in time.
Step 2: Create Space for the Eggs
Place your bread on a half sheet pan or cookie sheet.
Using a spoon, create a square indentation in the middle of the bread (see picture). Use the tip of your spoon to create the edges, and the back of the spoon to push down the middle.
Next, using a brush, brush on some oil around the rim of the bread. This will create good adhesion for the cheese.
Step 3: Add Cheese and Eggs
Sprinkle the oiled rim of the bread with cheese. Try to be careful and not get cheese on the baking sheet, because it will definitely burn.
Finally, crack an egg into the middle of the bread slices.
Step 4: Bake
Place the cookie sheet into the middle of your 350 degree oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the egg is just barely runny.
In this particular recipe, I have found that the egg always comes out a bit runny. If you keep the toast on too long it will burn before the egg is completely firm. I like them runny, so this is perfect for me.
Step 5: Serve to a Greatful Audience
After removing from the oven, season and serve your lovely baked egg cheese toast. This is a very easy meal to make, and consider how good it tastes, I will be making it very often.
