    Stacky5's Note:

    This is an old family secret that my Mom used to call a "Sick Egg." I remember it from my childhood -- it's the first solid food past the chicken soup stage that Mom would fix us after we were sick with the flu, when we were starting to get hungry but still afraid to eat because of nausea...Hence, the name "Sick Egg." NOTE: This will only make you feel better if you like eggs to begin with...I'm pretty sure it would make things worse if you don't like them!!!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 slice white bread
    • 1 egg
    • Pam cooking spray

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toast a piece of white bread lightly in a toaster. Leave it plain (no butter.).
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a very small non-stick skillet LIGHTLY sprayed with Pam, gently crack 1 egg over medium-high heat (don't add salt or pepper). Cover skillet and LISTEN -- When you begin to hear a slight "sizzling sound", turn the heat off and let it sit (covered) on the burner for about 4 minutes. Uncover and check egg -- there should be NO slimy eggwhite on top, and the yolk should be 1/4 done and 3/4 runny.
    3. 3
      Lay egg flat on top of toast and cut into about 1/2" cubes.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a bowl and toss gently, letting the soft yolk sort of coat the toast pieces a little bit.
    5. 5
      NOTE: My kids now love this recipe and ask for it when they are NOT sick -- So in that case, I BUTTER the toast, I melt 1 teaspoons butter in the skillet to cook the egg in, and I salt & pepper the egg too! (Honestly, I still eat this recipe fixed that way when I'M not sick either!) :) I think my Mom would probably frown upon that -- .

      Great recipe - It is just like "Dippers" where you dip toast fingers into soft boiled eggs. Made a lovely Sunday Brunch along with stir fry peppers, taters & mushrooms

      Added a little seasoned salt -- but this was so good. This is how I am used to my eggs :) Such a comfort food! Made in memory of Stacy. She will be missed.

      I love poached eggs on toast and this recipe is so much easier. These turned out perfect on my ceramic stove top. I cooked on level 6 and they only had to set for about 2 minutes and they were done to perfection. Made in memory of Stacy. You will be missed my friend.
