Egg in Basket with ProsciuttoIngredients
2 slices of whole wheat bread
Butter for the bread
A few slices of prosciutto (or ham)
A round (or square I guess) glass
Take 1 slice of bread and place glass upside down in the middle to create a hole for the egg. Press glass down and twist. I used a wine glass because my regular glasses made too big of a hole.
In a pan, melt pat of butter on medium low heat. Place holey bread in. Brown slightly, then flip.
Pour the egg into the hole. I pre-cracked the egg in a little bowl to avoid shells in my sandwich. Not tasty. Cook until egg white is nearly opaque, 5-7 min. The yolk will be cooked and just slllighty still yolky in the middle. Flip and cook egg side down (for a well done egg).
When the egg is almost cooked, brown the other slice of bread with more buttahhhh. Add prosciutto on second slice of bread just to warm it up slightly
Remove from pan. Serve open faced or not.
Cut cherry tomatoes into halves. Place face down in same pan as sandwich for a couple min on medium low heat. The tomatoes will just start to caramelize. Remove from heat. Serve with a sprinkle of salt, black pepper, and a sprig of cilantro or herbs if on hand. Tomatoes are also good on their own being extra tasty after a little cooking.
Closed face sandwich.
Good for a light dinner, brunch, or afternoon snack ;)
