Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
-  2 slices whole grain bread
-  1 egg
-  a few slices of green bell pepper
-  2 slices of turkey
-  1 small potato sliced into rounds
-  shredded mozzarella cheese
 - 1 tsp of oil
-  1 tbsp of butter
-  1 shake of seasoned salt
-  1 shake of black pepper
-  1 shake of onion powder

Step 2: Prep, Prep!

Heat the oil in a skillet on medium heat.  Peel and slice your potato into rounds.  Slice about 3 rounds off the bell pepper.  Once your skillet is warm, add your potatoes and peppers.  Sprinkle a handful of water over the mixture and cover with a lid for 7 minutes on medium low.  Do not disturb, wait for the the timer to go off.

While the potatoes/peppers are cooking, grab a biscuit cutter, clean empty tuna can or in my case my daughter's sippy cup and press into one of your bread slices. Apply pressure and twist to get a nice clean round cut into the bread. Lift your cutter and pop the bread round out.

The timer has gone off.  Remove the lid carefully and flip the taters and peppers.  Try to shape the mixture so that it will fit the width of the bread nicely.  Add mozzarella cheese, however much you want.  Remove your potato mixture and set it aside on a plate.  Brown up your turkey in the same skillet and place on top of your potato mixture.  
I've toyed with this idea, but since I like mine yolks a bit runny, I can't easily eat them this way since they tend to squirt when you bite 'em and it gets all over you.

The way it's cooked in V for Vendetta is similar but instead of flipping the raw egg inside the piece of bread, it appears that it may have been steam cooked, that's why in the movie you can still see the yolk. So "V" had to make a hole, crack the egg then cover with a lid so that the egg can cook and the yolk can set. I made mine like a regular over easy egg, just in toast.

Aw really? I just thought of this because my hubby likes one eyed jacks and also really likes breakfast sammys. Oh well. It's still tastes good.

it was something similar. i dont think there was a hole in the bread in the one i saw, and there was only bacon inside with the egg. i think it was on a japanese morning show.

I remember this, It was in a movie I saw a few years ago, I have been trying to figure out the best method for making my own at the house. This fills in the missing piece. thanks!
