A classic breakfast like no other. Best with home-made crusty bread.
- 3 pcs Eggs Very gently whisked with a fork for 10 seconds
- 2 slices Homemade crusty bread Any bread is fine really. But toasted.
- A few pcs Cherry tomatoes These are optional but I Iove them
- Butter For the eggs, and a bit more for the toast
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- Bread goes into the toaster ( oven or grill, whatever)
Throw your tomatoes onto a hot pan with olive oil and cook for a couple of minutes until slightly 'burnt'. Professionals would call it 'caramelized' !! Remove.
Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and very gently whisk with a fork for a few seconds until the yolks and whites are just starting to mess each other up.
More olive oil in the same pan on low heat. Pour in your eggs. Add a large knob of butter. Sprinkle with sea salt.
I add my pepper before serving.
Gently fold as eggs begin to cook. Keep folding --just with a fork, and just tear and rip at them ever so gently.
Turn off the heat when no snotty bits are visible!
Promptly remove from pan.
MAKE SURE YOUR EGGS ARE NOT FULLY COOKED ON THE PAN WHEN YOU TURN OFF THE HEAT.
Often times you see people make scrambled eggs by whisking them in the pan til the cows come home.
To me, that somehow yields a kind of a crumbly texture --which I am not particularly keen on. That is why I like to gently fold mine with a fork, instead of going mad with the whisk.
'Silky' is how I like my eggs!
Out comes your toast. Butter them GENEROUSLY!
Eggs go on top. Another knob of butter goes on top.
Throw in the cooked tomatoes, and breakfast is served.
There is this certain thrill I get about watching my butter melt before my very eyes. So I make sure I dollop it on just before I get myself seated armed with my cup of freshly made coffee.
But then again, we all have our own thrills -- mine's melting butter!
Here's to a fab simple breakfast to die for.
