Eggy Breakfast Toastie

A delicious morning toastie to get you out of bed – with a fried free-range egg, caramelised onion, and crispy bacon or golden aubergine  on sourdough.

  • Slice some onions and slice up some freshly baked bread of choice.

  • In a pan over medium heat, fry the onions in some oil or butter slowly until caramelized, stirring occasionally, about 5-10 minutes. Season to taste, and remove from the pan. 

  • Animal Protein: Fry your bacon to your preference. Drain on some paper towel. 

  • Vegetarian option: Slice up some aubergine about 1cm thick. Fry the aubergine slices until golden and soft, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and season to taste.

  • Pop your slices of sourdough into the toaster until warmed and golden – or toast ‘em in the pan if you’re feeling gourmet. 

  • Fry an egg in the pan to your preference – we recommend sunny side up, to start your day on a bright note .

  • Put some butter, mayo or any sauce you just love on your sourdough slices. Add your bacon or aubergine, caramelized onions and fried egg and put the other slice of toast on top. Take a bite! Now you are ready to take on a brand new day.

CHEF’S TIP: 

Any bread of choice will do, but It is worth noting that one of the benefits of fresh sourdough bread is that it has a longer shelf life than typical store-bought bread. It can typically last for about 4 to 5 days at room temperature. Whatever you do, please do not refrigerate your bread.
