Egg in a basket, toad in a hole, one-eyed sailor, hole in one, bird in a nest, egg in a frame, egg in toast, or…popeyes! What do you call this classic fried egg and toast breakfast? Popeyes are a fun way to add variation when your morning meals are getting repetitive. Use sprouted wheat or sourdough bread, eggs from pasture-raised chickens, butter from pasture-raised cows, and you’ll have a very nutritious and filling breakfast. I feel bad for those who don’t like fried eggs (ahem…my husband) because popeyes are the best!

- 1 slice sprouted whole wheat bread
- 1 pastured egg
- 1 Tbsp pastured butter
- unrefined sea salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- Cut a hole in the bread with an upside down glass or round biscuit cutter.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan on medium-low heat.
- Place the bread in the frying pan.
- Break the egg into the hole.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Cook until the bread is browned and the egg has set enough to slide in the pan.
- Flip the toast without breaking the egg yolk and cook until the other side has just browned. I like my egg over-easy so the yolk stays runny and will spread over the toast when eaten.
- Add the bread "hole" to the pan and toast it as well if you'd like.
- Serve hot and enjoy!

Can you replace the pastured butter with maragrine? Should be much more healthy choice….
