Lazy breakfast: Eggs on a raft

I love eggs for breakfast. But sometimes (okay, often) I’m too lazy to make a big omelette or fancy-pants breakfast – or even just regular scrambled eggs.

So, that’s when I resort to eggs on a raft*. My dad used to make this all the time when I was growing up, and he’s still the best at it. And fine, it might not be that hard, but can you really beat your own dad’s cooking? Anyway, what it really comes down to is a simple breakfast: just eggs and toast, all buttery and runny and delicious.

All you do is butter both sides of a piece of bread, then cook it in a skillet on medium-low heat. When the bread starts to soften, use a spatula to cut a square in the center of the piece of bread. (The teeny square piece of bread becomes the best part!)

Then crack open an egg into the center – if you’re feeling ambitious (or just hungry) like I was, you can use two – and cook to your desired consistency. Flip and cook a bit longer so it’s browned on both sides, and there you have it – the lazy person’s eggs and toast.

*This is also known as “eggs in a basket” and I’m sure by a thousand other names, of which I don’t know/can’t remember.
