Kirsty Wark’s Holey Egg
Ingredients (serves 1)
1 slices of bread of your choice
Olive or sunflower oil for frying
Salt and pepper
Method (you really need to watch the video!)
- Cut the crusts of the slice of bread (or not).
- Using a small cake cutter or an egg cup, press out a hole in the centre of the slice of bread.
- Heat some oil in the base of a non-stick frying pan and gently fry the bread on one side – you want it to become crunchy. (You can also fry the cut-out disc on the side.)
- When the pan is reasonably hot, crack the egg so that the yolk sits in the hole and the white spills over the bread.
- Add plenty of salt and pepper.
- Cook the egg until the yolk will hold its shape without splitting when you turn the slice of bread over in the pan to fry the other side.
- Fry the second side just until the bread is toasted but the yolk is still soft and runny – turn the cut-our disc too.
