This is a lazy Sunday morning recipe. This is a lazy Sunday morning, so that is entirely appropriate. The sun is shining outside, my coffee cup is full, the day is looking good. This is not a day (hopefully) where anyone in my family will need a trip to the hospital (emergency or otherwise), anything I own will break down, necessitating expensive repairs, nor will there be any exciting adventures, requiring me to, for example, swim across a largish harbour away from a capsized sailboat with my eight year old on my back. (Gosh, my life sounds exciting, doesn't it?)
Come have a lazy Sunday with me. This recipe is not really a recipe, it's just a suggestion for a direction to dress up your eggs just enough for them to feel posh and luxurious, without having to do any real work in the kitchen.
Apparently without doing any real work with your camera either. Not one of my better pics. You get the idea though.
1 egg per person
2 tablespoons (per person) of bruschetta mixture to suit your tastes - you can use a store-bought mix, a homemade mixture, or just chop up some tomatoes and onions and fresh herbs
a small amount of grated cheese - I like monterey jack for this, but anything that melts nicely will do
Over low heat, crack each egg into an egg ring and cover for about 5 minutes. Once the egg has started to set, spoon on the bruschetta mixture and cover again for a few more minutes. Once the edges have started to brown just slightly, sprinkle with grated cheese, turn off the heat, and cover for a few more minutes. Note: I like my egg yokes on the runny side. If you prefer a firm yoke, increase cooking times, but make sure you keep the heat very low to avoid scorching the bottom of your egg.
Serve with toast. Relax.
