One Eyed Jacks

Looking for a delicious and simple breakfast to jump start your day? If you answered yes then I have a new found obsession that you should definitely try! They're called One Eyed Jacks. A simple bread and egg combination that leaves you filled and satisfied. 

Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cheese square slice of your choice (if you're not a cheese person it's great without it too)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 slice bread

Cooking Instructions



  • Take one slice bread and lightly butter one side. Tear a half dollar hole out of the center of the bread(eat it!) then place bread butter side down on pre-heated skillet
  • Add the remainer of your tablesppon butter to the now open hole in the bread and crack an egg and place it in the hole or empty center.
  • Add your favorite spices ie pepper/salt or nothing
  • Turn the slice bread with egg over when egg white is turning from clear to white or approx 1/2 done.(careful dont break the egg!)
  • After approx 1 minute place the slice of cheese on top of the bread/egg (cover if possible) til cheese starts to melt. (Another alternative is finish off in micro wave on plate for approx 20 seconds.
  • Put on plate with nice sliced tomatoes or fruit on side. A nice easy/lazy way to make a breakfast with little clean up and tatstes GOOD!

egg in the nest! that's what we call them around here. unfortunately, the more butter the better :) and i ALWAYS grille the extra round piece of bread that is cut out of the middle. best part.
