grilled cheese egg in a hole.

i feel like i could start a blog on all the different ways we plan on eating eggs.  it had been a couple of days since we last ate one and this weekend i looked in the refrigerator to notice we had a full dozen!  time to get crackin’ … i know.  it is early.

i was inspired by this recipe but wanted to make a few changes.  for my sandwich i started with udi gluten-free whole grain bread. when i am not baking my own bread this is the choice i make. 

using a cookie cutter or a pint glass jar, cut a hole from the center of both slices of bread. melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. when it’s melted, add the two slices of bread. let the bread lightly toast until lightly golden brown, and then flip the two slices over. dab the remaining butter in the middle of the bread circles to ensure the egg doesn’t stick.

crack the eggs into the holes.  i don’t add salt to dishes but if you do, then now is the time to do it.

cover the pan for a minute, just until the egg whites are sorta set. flip over to get both sides nice and toasted.  next, add the sliced or grated cheese and turkey breast to one half and cover for another minute, or until the cheese is practically melted.

using a spatula, gently top the cheese slice with the other egg in a hole. cook for one more minute, or until the cheese is melted.

this is easy to make your own.  substitute the turkey breast with grilled peppers and onions, that is what i plan on doing next. 

there is something about the melted cheese and the slightly runny egg on the grilled toast.  major yum factor.  here is the calorie and ingredient breakdown.

2 slices gluten-free udi’s whole grain bread.  140 calories/2 slices
(for the husband i used a honey whole wheat bread and he was completely happy. so use whatever sliced bread you like best!)
reduced fat pepperjack sliced cheese. 60 calories/1 slice
2 eggs. 65 calories/1 egg
no salt turkey breast. 60 calories/2 ounces.

total calories 390.  i served this with greek yogurt for myself and the husband wanted potato chips.  we will definitely be making this and other variations again. 

and a quick shout out to my thoughtful husband that brought home “i am proud of all your work” flowers.  sigh.  i love that boy.
