Spicy eggy bread


DSC_0140When you get tired of your daily egg and bread breakfast and wish to twist it into a spectacular bronzed meal of cheesy topping, you make these babies; that in reality are nothing more than your daily fare of omelette and bread, all jeujed up into spicy fragments of burnished toasts. Not only do they take away from the mundanity of an everyday same ol’ breakfast but also kick it up a notch with flavours that feel just right for the most important meal of the day.

Also a good way to use up any leftover bread that you’ve been trying to ignore.

The ingredients are not much and can easily be improvised to suit your taste buds. Just butter, oil, pepper, paprika, milk, eggs, spring onions, cheese and bread.

chop spring onions as fine as possible, or not. Totally depends on your morning mood.

Shove it into a bowl and crack a couple eggs on top.

and finally salt. Not a lot.

get onto a bit of bread knifing. Now this step could totally be dispensed with if you’re using stale sandwich bread like one should, but somehow I had this stale piece of baguette that no one wanted to touch with a ten foot pole and thus had to use it up.. how it crumbles. Domesticity you see.

Take some time to chop, shred, grate some cheese. Any cheese you fancy. I’m using Manchego cheese because there were a few slices knocking about in my fridge.

soak pieces of bread into the spicy eggy mixture

in the meanwhile heat some butter in a bit of oil.

flip bread on the other side so it soaks up all the eggy richness evenly.

once the butter begins to froth, place bread slices onto the foamy fat. Don’t let the skillet get too hot, or else you’ll burn this artistic piece of heavenly breakfast. Dot the tops with whatever onions are let languishing in the bottom of the bowl.

Turn them over a dozen heartbeats later, totally depending on the heat. Try and keep the heat towards medium.

and immediately stick cheese on these bread slices

like so. Well, the hardest part is all done.

reduce the heat to low and cover the skillet with a lid for about thirty seconds or so.
