    Recipe Notes

  • My favorite toast for this meal is the Early Bird Multiseed Bread from Whole Foods, but you know what you like.
  • Here's an amazon affiliate link to my favorite little frying pan for eggs. It calls itself a one-egg pan, but it fits two large eggs. I'm not a huge fan of single-purpose tools, but I use this little guy all the time, and not just for eggs. Last week used it to toast pine nuts for that scrumptious ramp pesto, for example.
