I confess. I have never been a big breakfast person. Most breakfast meals have a ton of sugar in them (cereals, pancakes, toast with jam, etc) and I’ve always suffered from blood sugar backlashes halfway through my morning when I eat breakfast. You know, the shaky weak feeling? Yeah, not fun. So all growing up I just skipped breakfast and ignored the “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” warnings.
I’ve experimented sometimes with different breakfast options to try and find one that my body liked. I’ve tried oatmeal, eggs cooked every way you can imagine, bagels, etc. Everything either didn’t fill me up or I got sick of eating it after a week or so.
That is, until I found this god-send of a go to breakfast recipe! When I found it (on Pinterest!) it was from a mens blog and it was called “Toad in the Hole”, although when you read through the comments some people questioned it’s authenticity because it’s far different than the English version of Toad in the Hole. This is not by any means an original concept, though I have my own spin on it. Do you make this recipe? What do you call it?
I modified the recipe a little bit and cut the portion down to half, and discovered my absolute favorite breakfast! It’s so easy, filling, and delicious that really there is no longer any excuse to not eat breakfast. Plus, I first started making this months ago and I make it almost every day…still haven’t gotten sick of it!
I don’t have any fancy name for it, but if you think of one please share in the comment section!
1 Slice of bread
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Heat a skillet over medium heat and put a small amount of olive oil & butter in the pan, just enough to coat it. ake the piece of bread a cut a hole in the middle of it. You can use the top of a juice glass, or a cookie cutter to do this. Feel free to get creative too! Use a heart shaped cookie cutter just for fun Once you’ve got the hole in the bread, pop it in the skillet and crack an egg right in the middle of the hole. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, thyme, and parmesan cheese on top of the bread, eggs, & the round cutouts. Let it cook for a little bit (2-4 minutes, depending on how done you want your yolks), and then flip to the other side, just long enough to finish melting the cheese and cook the yolks a bit. Transfer to your plate and your done! Mmmm….. so delicious.
If I have fruit on hand I’ll usually have some on the side. Like I said, I LOVE this breakfast! It’s easy, it’s filling, it’s healthy, it’s sugar free and it’s FAST.
What is your go to breakfast recipe?
Just thought of a name…if I ever get my hands on this adorable Gator cookie cutter I’ll call mine Gatoreggs. Get it?! Ok I’ll stop.
