Kids the world over have delighted in coining names for this simple breakfast. ‘One-eyed Jack’, ‘Moon Egg’ or ‘Hen-in-the- nest’ are just a few. Remember to keep the yolk soft so you can cut round the edges and dip in.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 slice white farmhouse bread
large knob butter
1 egg
dollop tomato ketchup
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Using a 7cm round pastry cutter or glass, stamp out a hole in the middle of the bread and remove.
  2. Heat half the butter in a frying pan over a gentle heat. Once foaming, pop in the slice of bread and bread disc and cook for 2 –3 minutes until golden brown. Flip the bread over and add the remaining butter to the pan. Crack the egg into the hole of the bread and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the egg is set, covering with a lid for the final minute. Transfer to a plate, grind over some black pepper and sprinkle with salt. Serve with the bread disc for dipping and a dollop of ketchup.
