Only the lonely egg sits in the carton wondering its destiny. Starving basketball player needs nourishment for the final game of the season. An egg-a-hole-ah would suffice but the inspiration for more calls for pushing it up a notch!
A grilled cheese sandwich around the fried-egg-in-the-middle-of-the-toast was just the ticket. First a biscuit cutter is used to make the hole (also known was the nest for “bird in the nest”) in the base piece of bread. The ‘holey’ slice and the hole are placed in a hot frying pan with butter. Crack an egg into the hole to begin to fry it. Flip over when about 1/2 done (or done enough so that the egg white is stuck to the edges of the hole). Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on the top and cover with another slice of bread. Turn over and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on this side and top with another slice of bread. When the bottom side is browned, flip to brown the new side. Use as much butter as needed/desired. If the pan is hot enough, the burner can be turned off so the bread toasts slowly. That’s a total of three slices of bread, one egg, and enough cheese for both side of the middle. Another high protein load for the athlete. (Must have been the right fuel: Victory! and a game well played.)
