  • 1/4 teaspoon Mrs. Dash® Lemon Pepper seasoning blend

  1. Use a biscuit or cookie cutter to cut the center out of the slice of bread to toast.
  2. Spray both sides of bread and center cut-out circle with olive oil cooking spray.
  3. Heat a medium skillet and place both pieces of the cut bread in skillet. Break egg into center “hole” of cut-out portion. Season with lemon pepper.
  4. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and flip over to cook other side. Also, flip the cut-out circle of bread to toast on each side.
  5. Sprinkle egg with Parmesan cheese.

Helpful hints

  • Bread choices include white, wheat, sourdough or rye. 
  • Change the cookie cutter to fit the occasion or holiday.
  • This offers a quick breakfast, which cooks the egg and toast together. My mother-in-law had eight children and this was their favorite family breakfast for the large family.
