This is a top little snack for those who are not into bread but miss that little eggy dream come true, sometimes called a Toad In The Hole, other times an Egg In The Basket, some freaks even call it a Popeye Egg.
Either way, this is a great little alternative that you can whip up at a moment’s notice, and is basically no mess no fuss.
Prep/cooking time: quicker than a schoolboy on prom night.
Cut a slice of the cheese about equivalent to a piece of bread.
I recommend fairly thin, as haloumi can often have a lot of taste in it already which may overpower the snack.
Take a cookie cutter and plug out a hole in the cheese, or just cut one out with a Rambo knife.
Dump some butter in the pan on medium heat.
Chuck in the cheese.
Cook for a couple mins and flip out like a ninja.
Pop the egg into the middle of the hole.
Flip after a couple mins, then leave for just long enough to cook the albumin (white) – about 30 secs – any longer than that and the yolk is overdone.
Hey, it’s an egg and cheese.
Plenty of fat and protein, a bit of good cholesterol, and negligble carbs.
