12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE
Who doesn’t love a good breakfast? This may be surprising to most, but my favourite meal to enjoy out is actually breakfast and not dinner. I genuinely miss going out for breakfast on Sunday morning — and I’m talking actual breakfast guys and not brunch! Like the real deal sitting with the oldies, drinking coffee and not a mimosa, and eating my fried eggs in this calm peaceful atmosphere that smells like bacon… what’s not to love??
A good breakfast motivates me for the rest of the day, it soothes my soul, and truthfully if you serve me a plate of eggs, toast and a coffee? I’m your best friend.
Soooo, of course I have to incorporate a bomb breakfast into my 12 Days of Christmas!
- 4 pieces of toast bread (2/per person)
- 4 large eggs
- 6-8 pieces of thinly sliced prosciutto,
- butter, room temp for spreading
- chives, finely diced
- grated parmesan
- salt + pepper
Start by preheating your oven to 400ºF. Using a small pairing knife and the rim of a drinking glass, impress the glass into the middle of the toast bread, and using the pairing knife if needed, and cut out the middle ring of the bread.
Butter one side of the bread and place the buttered part face side down onto the bare baking tray. Do the same with the middle pieces of toast.
On another baking tray, this one lined with parchment, lay out the pieces of prosciutto and set aside for the time being.
Next, crack the eggs slowly into the centre of the toastbread, being sure to keep the yolk intact. Season the egg with salt, pepper and a sprinkle a bit of parmesan on top of the eggs for added richness.
Place the sheet pan with the toast and eggs into the oven and set a timer for 6 minutes. At the 6 minute mark, place the second baking tray with the prosciutto into the oven and set another timer for 6 – 8 minutes until the eggs are cooked slightly runny and the salted meat has crisped up significantly.
Let the crisp prosciutto dry off on a few paper towels to remove any excess grease before crumbling in your hands for crispy, salty, prosciutto bites to sprinkle over top of your egg-in-a-hole. Top the toast with fresh chives and enjoy this super easy and elevated breakfast guys.
Peace and good eats, -A❁
