This simple and delicious breakfast recipe has everything you need all toasted up onto a single slice of bread. My kids love it! It’s easy enough for them to make on their own, and it’s perfect for busy mornings.

Getting tired of cereal for breakfast? If you’re looking for breakfast ideas that are a step above your usual scrambled eggs, you’ve got to try this unique toast method topped with an egg and lots of shredded cheese lining the rim. It’s basically an open faced breakfast sandwich, which makes it so much better in my opinion because the cheese gets so toasty.

Any bread can be used for this, but I use Dave’s whole grain seeded bread for added nutrition. All in all, this breakfast is pretty darn healthy with lots of protein and fiber. You could also add some green with avocado served over top!

1. Smash With A Spoon

Use a spoon to smash a pocket into the center of your bread slice, just large enough for your egg to rest without spilling over the side. Be careful not to tear the bread!

2. Butter The Rim

Generously butter the edges of the bread to prevent them from burning in the toaster oven. It also tastes delicious! Butter is never a bad thing.

3. Crack An Egg

Crack an egg right onto the center where you’ve created your shallow pocket.

4. Season & Rim With Cheese

Season the egg to your liking with salt, pepper, garlic powder and anything else you’d like, and then rim the buttered edges of the toast with shredded cheese.

5. Toast (2 Ways)

TOASTER OVEN

Place on a greased or lined pan and toast on the “toaster setting” at 350 degrees until the cheese is browned and the egg white is completely cooked through. This should take 3-5 minutes.

REGULAR OVEN

Bake on a lined or greased sheet pan at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes (10 minutes will give you a runny yolk and 15 will give you a firmer yolk). The oven method is great if you are cooking several at once.

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: cheese, eggs, toast
Servings: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 slice of bread *see notes
  • 1 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • seasoning to taste
Instructions
  1. Use the bottom of a spoon to flatten the center of your bread slice, just enough to create a shallow pocket so that your egg doesn't slide off.

  2. Butter the rim, paying close attention to the edges as the butter helps prevent them from burning.

  3. Crack your egg directly into the center where your pocket was formed.

  4. Season to your liking with salt, pepper, garlic powder and anything else you'd like.

  5. Rim the buttered edges with your shredded cheese.

TOASTER OVEN
  1. Cook on a toaster pan (greased or lined) at 350 degrees on your toaster setting, observing as it cooks, until the egg white is cooked through and the cheese has browned.

REGULAR OVEN
  1. Bake on a lined or greased sheet pan at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes (10 minutes will give you a runny yolk and 15 will give you a firmer yolk). The oven method is great if you are cooking several at once.

Recipe Notes

*Any sandwich bread works for this recipe, but I prefer a heartier bread like Dave's whole grain. Soft white bread tears a lot easier, so be careful when you create your pocket not to tear the bread with your spoon.

 

Tips & Tricks

  • If you don't like your egg yolk runny, you can use a fork to smash and swirl it a bit once it's on the toast. You basically want the egg yolk to spread out a bit so that it cooks faster.
  • The smaller pieces of shredded cheese tend to cook a lot faster, so keep that in mind if you don't like your cheese too toasty.
  • Try serving this toast with avocado and hot sauce. The ultimate breakfast!
