Fast Toast Friday: Baked Egg and Cheese

Fast Toast Friday 9

Here’s a quickie breakfast for you.  Preheat your oven to 375°F and take a slice (or four) of your favourite bread.

Fast Toast Friday 1

Use a knife to score a square in the slice, cutting about halfway through — not all the way through.

Fast Toast Friday 2

Use your fingers or the knife to flatten the bread inside the square, making a frame of the outer edge.

Fast Toast Friday 3

Four little toasties.

Fast Toast Friday 4

Scoop your toasties onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and carefully crack an egg into the flattened square of each slice. The frame keeps the egg from spilling everywhere.

Fast Toast Friday 5

Grate up some cheese (this is a mix of havarti and cheddar) and sprinkle it around the frame of the bread.

Fast Toast Friday 6

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and the egg is cooked to your liking.  Garnish with salt and pepper, if desired, and serve with the rest of your breakfast.  Yum!
