Summary: Super easy and tasty! Use your favorite hard cheese–cheddar, swiss, etc. I like a very sharp cheddar.
- 2 eggs
- 1 ounce cheese
- 1 teaspoon butter
- chives (optional)
- Grate cheese and break eggs into a dish but don’t stir them.
- Heat a small frypan on medium heat and melt butter; if possible use a pan that the eggs will just fit into, covering the entire pan. When butter bubbles nicely, pour in the eggs, smother with the cheese, sprinkle with chopped chives or green onions if desired, and cover the pan. Turn heat to lowest setting; if using an electric stove you can turn the heat off.
- Leave eggs covered for 5 minutes, making your toast while you wait. No peeking! Whites will be set and yolks runny.
