Perhaps the most versatile ingredient for chefs and aspiring cooks, most would assume eggs are pretty easy to handle. Until you’re actually in the kitchen, unsure of what exactly it is you’ll do with them. Fry them? How about a boiled egg? Why not poach them? So many different options with a multitude of ingredients to do them with.
Plus, they’re really good for you in terms of nutrition, so go ahead and have them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And you don’t need to be a chef to handle eggs so don’t worry.
Here’s a simple recipe with eggs that you can do with just one pan.
Eggs are always guaranteed to tickle the palate.
This is a one-pan recipe. Pretty self-explanatory. It is fun, easy, and simple so from preparation to cleaning up won’t be intimidating. The ingredients you’ll need are found in most pantries. Or head on down to your local grocery if you don”t.
You will need:
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 or 2 slices of your favorite cheese
- 2 eggs
- a pinch of salt
For variety, you may add:
- ham or bacon (or both)
- salami or pepperoni (why not both?)
- black pepper or paprika
Now it’s entirely up to you how many sandwiches you want to make so portion accordingly. Double the fun!
Start by slicing your preferred bread. Most people would go with white, but really, go for what your heart tells you. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Slice them symmetrically though as they’ll need to match when folded.
Now for the cheese!
Again, use what you want (to each his own) according to your pockets. Though it should be a type that will melt easily like cheddar, provolone, mozzarella, and the like. Do consult your local deli if need be.
Now grab those eggs and crack them in to a mixing bowl. Give them a good whisking. Add some salt. Seeing as this is a recipe that can be done to suit one’s personal taste, why not add in some of your favorite herbs? Just remember to keep things simple.
Heat up a pan over low heat.
With a bit of butter, spread it over the pan making sure to cover the entire surface. Take those freshly whisked eggs and pour them in to the pan slowly, again making sure to cover the whole surface. Your other ingredients should be within easy reach as this is where the fun part happens.
Carefully put the sliced bread on top of the still cooking eggs. Turn the bread over making sure it’s well coated with egg. Once you see that both sides are soaked, let the egg cook like an omelette.
Once those eggs are golden gorgeous, flip the whole thing over to let the outer side of the sandwich to cook. Fold those edges in so you’ll have another surface area to work with. Cool huh.
Instead of a cherry on a sundae, it’s cheese on the egg!
Go ahead and put the cheese on that blank canvass. How about the other side, you ask? That’s where your creativity comes in. Let it cook until it’s like a perfect omelette or to your satisfaction depending on how crisp and melted you want it to be.
Good, huh? Try it again next time, with different ingredients this time!
