Pop-Eye Eggs with Cheese and Salsa
1 tsp+ 1 tsp olive oil
2 pieces whole wheat bread
2 large eggs
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup low-fat grated cheese
salsa for serving, optional but good
Have all ingredients ready on counter. Use a small juice glass to cut a hole directly in the center of each piece of bread. Use a heavy frying pan large enough to hold both pieces of bread. Heat the pan for about 30 seconds over medium heat, brushing the pan with 1 tsp. olive oil. Add the pieces of bread and cook until one side is browned and toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Turn pieces of bread over. Drizzle 1/2 tsp. of oil into the center of each piece of bread and immediately break an egg into the hole, being careful not to break the egg. Season eggs with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, then sprinkle each piece of bread with about 2 tablespoons of grated cheese. Cover pan and cook until cheese is melted, egg white is firm, and yolks are as done as you’d like them, about 3-4 minutes. Serve hot, with salsa drizzled over if desired.
