Fried egg in bread

Fried egg in bread

This is a novel way to cook an egg in the middle of a slice of fried bread. For a continental twist to the English breakfast, it comes with a slice of grilled bacon and a little pesto.

The tricky part (explained in full in the recipe) is to cook the egg white through but keep the yolk runny.

Remarks

You can use cured ham, such as Serano, instead of streaky bacon, if you prefer.

If you are short of time, break the egg directly into the hole in the bread, but do take care not to cook it too rapidly, so that the white has time to cook properly.
