With the British Medical Journal giving the go ahead on the consumption of one egg per day, men who were constantly nagged by their wives for their untoward affinity towards the double omelette, women who were too busy to make puttu and kadala for breakfast, and kids who didn't enjoy being bullied into eating dosa and sambar before the school van honked at their doors by their saber toothed mothers, can all heave a sigh of relief.
Because if you are not suffering from any other ailment, an egg a day can contribute to a robust health with its abundant quota of proteins, amino acids, riboflavin, and all vitamins from A to Z. And nothing can beat the deliciousness and convenience of a breakfast of fried egg and toast that's ready in a jiffy.
2 thick slices of bread
2 tablespoons butter + 1 tablespoon (olive) oil
4 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon pizza seasoning (dried herbs of choice)
To taste, salt and pepper
Cut a hole in the middle of each slice of bread. Butter both sides and place on a hot (non stick) pan over low heat. When browned to your liking, add olive oil and turn the bread slices.
Crack each egg and pour slowly into the hole. After a minute, scatter cheese over the bread slices and cook for about 4 more minutes. I didn't cover and cook because I didn't want that whitish film forming over the yolk.
Season as required and savor the goodness.
