One of the fondest memories I have of my grandma was when she used to visit with us and make us breakfast in the mornings. Her specialty was boiled eggs and toast soldiers. Just thinking about it makes me smile. I am sure most people share similar memories.

I felt so special getting this “fancy” breakfast.


Toast and Eggs

I have a take on this breakfast that is great for kids and adults. It is super easy to make. If you include boiling the water the entire recipe takes 9 minutes to make. Perfect for before school or on the weekend.

Grown up Eggs and Soldiers

  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of your favorite bread ( I used ciabatta)
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper

Take a pot of water and boil it. Add the egg to the water for 6 minutes. Toast your favorite bread and butter it. Dice it up into cubes and put into a bowl. Remove egg, run it quickly under cold water and peel. Place the peeled egg on the toast cubes and slice it open. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

Just like grandma used to make only more grown up.
