Greggs and Toast: Some Serious Eats

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Serves: 2-3 peeps
Difficulty: This isn’t for the lazy or meek. Hike up your boots and get to it!
Recommended Sides: Included

5 eggs
1-2 tomatoes
A bunch of potatoes
4 cloves garlic
1/2 onion
Awesome bread
Salt and pepper
Italian seasoning
A bit of cream (half/half or milk)

The eggs in this came from Gordon Ramsay’s recipe (Get it? G.R.eggs? sorry…). I added my own flair and sides to it, so let’s see how it works out. This recipe involves cooking the main dish along with the sides simultaneously. I wrote this in order of how I made everything, so it should work for you. This is a good recipe to use when you have a bit of time, and want something a little different from the norm. Good luck!

Step 1: Small Potatoes 
Boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes then chop into little cubes. Toss into pan with hot olive oil and add cook until  they start to brown. Throw in the chopped garlic and onion and cook until you are done with everyone else. Add a few dashes of Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. The potatoes should have an even consistency throughout, and it should take roughly 15 minutes to fully cook.

Step 2: Bacon and Tomatoes
Put bacon in a pan on medium-high. Flip occasionally. You know how to make bacon, right?  The tomatoes can be done in one of two ways. You can either toss them in a pan with olive oil for 5-10 minutes, or chop them up and place them in olive oil for 5-10 minutes. Either way, they make a great addition to the meal.

Step 3: Bread
Slice the bread thickly and toss into the broiler. Don’t burn it! Do both sides and toss onto a plate.

Step 4: G.R.eggs
The biggest thing to remember while cooking these eggs is to always keeps stirring. You’ll want to take the eggs on and off the heat a lot. Try your best not to burn them! Crack the eggs in a small pot and add butter. Don’t add any seasoning yet- save that for the end. Mix them up and toss on a generous heat.

Whenever you feel it’s starting to thicken, take off the heat and keep stirring. Do this again and again and again and again…

And again…

And again and again…

Until they look something like this.

At this point, add a tsp of cream (or milk), salt, pepper, and a dash of something special (we used a pinch of chili powder, garlic powder, and chives). Place on bread.

Step 5: Combine and Masticate 
We made little open faced sandwiches, but you can do whatever you want. The tomatoes make an awesome addition to the eggs, so I would recommend putting them on top. Either way, this is an awesome  way to make eggs that you might not have had the chance to taste before. Cooking them slowly like this really brings out the flavor, and its worth all the stirring.
