Helpful hints

  • 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.

This was great...and easy!! Since I do all the cooking and I'm not a morning person, this was a gem of a recipe to find! I've always heard of this but I've never made it or had it before. Definitely a favorite! I'm loving this site! This is exactly what I need!! Thank you DaVita!

I made this a child and no idea to add parmesan cheese instead of salt. Very tasty version.

I made it this morning using buttermilk bread (hope that is okay) and two tablespoons of egg beater. I sprinkled some garlic powder (I use it on everything I can) after it finished cooking. Also, I use smart balance instead of butter except when I have to bake something for the family. I haven't used margarine in over two decades. loved it. I will definitely be making this again!

This recipe brings warm memories when my kids were little. We all still love this one, but we sprinkle garlic powder on it. Delicious!

I make this on a regular basis. It is a wonderful quick breakfast. I use my own home made french bread which helps lower the sodium as well.
