Servings 1


  • 1 Slice Whole Grain Bread
  • 1 Large Pasture-Raised Egg
  • Olive Oil for cooking
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Red Pepper Flakes to taste


  • To start, take a small glass or cookie cutter and cut a hole in the center of your bread.
  • Then, bring a nonstick frying pan to medium low heat. Add in a small drizzle of olive oil and wait until the oil is heated.
  • Once the oil is hot, add in the slice of bread and cook until toasted on one side.
  • Then, flip over the toast and reduce the heat slightly. Crack an egg into the hole and cook, covered, until the whites are just set.
  • Once the whites are set, remove the toast from the pan with a spatula. Season the egg with a pinch each of sea salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  • Serve with greens, if you'd like, or slices of avocado.
  • Enjoy!
