This little bench

All the things I couldn't

to pull down the cereal boxes from the top of the kitchen counters. (We only have 4 upper cabinets - and I can only reach two shelves without the bench - and even with the bench I have to stand on my tip-toes and stretch to get the cereal down). But I opened the fridge and we were out of milk. I didn't have to be a jungle monkey to pull cereal boxes down - and my son loves "eggs in toast."
I'm what you call an egg snob. I did not grow up with store-bought eggs. I grew up with farm fresh eggs and I can tell you, they are the best eggs you'll ever have - but, in my lazy adult years, I just let my husband pick up eggs from the store, regardless of if they are farm-fresh or not. Today's eggs are definitely not my favorite type of egg, but they did get my whole family a quick breakfast.
So, instead of making cereal, I made "eggs in toast." It is the easiest recipe ever - and it's quick. Eggs have 6-7 grams of protein, so you start your day with a lot of protein and depending on the bread you use, a few complex carbs too.
You need 2 ingredients, plus the utensils to cook it - so it's my 3, 2, 1 meal that I can whip up in a hurry.
Start by using your favorite pan for cooking and coating it with melted butter (or use a non-stick spray). Pull the center out of the bread. (This can be done numerous ways - I've seen my husband bite the center out). Place bread in the pan.
Crack the egg and put it in the hole.
Flip. Add cheese if desired.
Finally, in the span of about 5 minutes, you have a simple breakfast. Pair it up with some fruit or some coffee and glide on out the door to those #iceskating lessons.
