I discovered egg in a window (aka egg in a basket, aka peek a boo egg, aka egg in a frame, aka egg in a nest) at a later age. In fact what introduced me to the simple dish is the movie V for Vendetta, during that scene where Evey wakes up at her friend's home and for breakfast he made....eggs in a window. I remember watching that scene and immediately thinking how I could create it on my own at home. That was 6 years ago and to this day, this is one of my favorite breakfast dishes.
What you'll need:
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 tsp of butter
- 1 egg
- Cut a hole in the center of your bread (just about 2.5 inches all around - you can use a cooking cutter in the center too)
- Heat a pan on medium-low heat. (This temperature is important. Keep it on a lower heat to avoid burning your bread.)
- Add butter into pan and let each side of the bread absorb some of the butter while it's melting.
- Once each side has been evenly coated with butter, crack the egg and gently place in the center of your bread.
- Let it cook on one side until you notice the egg setting. Gently flip your bread/egg and cook the other side until your bread has reached a nice toast texture and your egg is fully cooked.
