So you wake up starving for a good hot breakfast and run to the refrigerator, only to find out that the carton of eggs is mostly empty. One lousy egg is nestled in the carton, while the other holes set empty, seemingly mocking you as your mouth waters for breakfast.
Beat that one egg, by using it and a few other ingredients to prepare your self a delicious breakfast. You’ll be full and satisfied as you add eggs to your grocery list!
One Egg Skillet Breakfast
Grab a couple of potatoes and slice them up into a skillet that you have added a small amount of oil to. If you have a small amount of bacon or ham slices, chop them up and toss the pieces in with the potatoes. You can also throw in some onions or green peppers if you like them.
When the potatoes are soft, break the one egg into a bowl and add a small amount of milk, about a tablespoon, and whisk the egg. Pour the egg over the top of the potatoes. Reduce the heat to about medium low. Let the egg cook on top of the potatoes until it starts to thicken up. Sprinkle grated cheese over the skillet breakfast and continue cooking until the cheese melts.
This one egg skillet breakfast will easily serve 2 people. Just cut the food in half in the skillet and use a large spatula to slide each portion onto a plate. Serve it with juice and toast and you have a good hearty breakfast.
Egg in a Nest Breakfast
This will only serve one child or one adult, so don’t plan this if you have more to feed for breakfast. You will only need the one egg, a slice of bread and some butter or margarine.
Butter the slice of bread on both sides. Use a cookie cutter in your child’s favorite shape to cut a hole in the center of the bread. Save the center too. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the one egg breakfast even more special.
Place the buttered bread slice in a medium hot skillet. Add the center cut out too. Break the egg and gently let it fall into the cut out center of the bread. Allow the bread to brown thoroughly before turning it over. Turn the center cut out as well. Cook on both sides until the bread is golden brown and the egg in the center is the desired doneness.
Scoop the nested egg up gently with a spatula and place it on a plate. Lay the browned center shape on the plate as well. Children love the uniqueness of this nestled egg and they will use the browned shape to dunk into the egg, eating every last bite!
