I saw THIS recipe and knew i had to try it out. It was really fun to make, and tasted delicious!!

4 thickly sliced bread
5 eggs
½ cup milk
1 tbs Parmesan cheese, finely grated
A knob of butter
A stalk of fresh parsley, minced for garnishing
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Cut a hole in all bread slices. I used a cookie cutter for a perfect round hole but it's really not necessary!

2. In a wide shallow dish, whisk in 1 egg with milk, Parmesan cheese and few cranks of black pepper

3. Soak each slice of bread in the egg mixture until well coated on all sides

4. Set a non-stick pan on medium heat with a knob of butter

5. Once the butter is foamy, lay each piece in the pan for 1 minute

6. Break an egg into each of the bread and let it sit until the bottom of the bread is slightly browned. Take a little peek by lifting the corner of the bread without spilling the egg in the hole

7. Once the eggs are a little firm, flip it over to brown the other side

8. Depends on how you prefer the egg: runny egg, 1-2 minutes while an almost hard yolk takes a good 3+ minutes

As you can see, i made use of the bread rounds as well, they mopped up the rest of the egg mixture and had some time on the fry pan aswell :P

And it wasn't complete without lashings of barbeque sauce !

Enjoy xoxo

I saw this recipe too! Haha I just thought double fried egg was a bit much though... =p
