teaspoon with a pointy tip or a regular, rounded teaspoon with a butter knife
Using a pointy-tipped teaspoon (or a butter knife), create the corners of the edges for the rectangle on your bread, pressing almost to the crust edges. Press down to create the rectangle.
Using the teaspoon, gently press the bread down to form the inside of the rectangle without tearing.
Repeat for every slice of bread you wish to make (1-2 slices per person).
Season the bread with salt and pepper.
Crack one egg into each slice of bread prepared; season the egg on top.
Butter the edges of the bread gently, being careful not to touch the egg.
Sprinkle shredded cheese onto the butter.
Spray your small baking tray or tin foil with cooking spray before placing into the toaster oven. (If you don’t have a toaster oven, you can place it into a covered saute pan and cook on medium until cooked).
Toast in your toaster oven (or covered saute pan) at 350 degrees, observing as it cooks, until the egg appears fried, about 10 or so minutes. Egg doneness varies based on personal preference, as well as oven variations and elevation.
Eat with fork and knife or as you would a piece of regular toast.
