“Quick and easy and pretty tasty! Easy to eat in the car or on the way to class too! Perfect for the lazy college student sick of cold pizza for breakfast or lunch or dinner. ;)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice bread (the bigger the better!)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon shredded cheese (optional)
  • salt and pepper


  1. Spray a small pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut a hole in the middle of the bread.
  3. Put the bread in the pan on medium/high heat for about a minute each side.
  4. Crack the egg into the hole in the bread and turn until egg is cooked.
  5. *The following are optional!*.
  6. While the egg is cooking you can sprinkle on the cheese. I like the cheese kind of crispy so I put it on almost right after I crack the egg. If you'd like the cheese a little more runny you should probably wait until it's almost done or even after you take it off the heat.
  7. You can toast and/or butter the bread lightly before cooking if you'd like but it's tasty either way.
