  • 1 large free range egg
  • 1 slice bread of choice large sized slice not from a mini loaf
  • smear of butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas7
  • Have a baking tray ready
  • Separate the egg and set aside the yolk for the time being
  • In a clean dry bowl (any moisture/grease will inhibit the fluffing process) whisk the egg white until it stands in peeks on its own, takes about 5 minutes by hand
  • Toast your slice of bread but don't make it too brown because it will be going into the oven
  • Lightly butter one side of the toast
  • Spoon on a layer of the fluffy egg white keeping within the edges of the slice
  • Make a slight dent in the centre of the fluff and drop in your egg yolk
  • Now cover over with the rest of the fluffy egg white making sure that the egg yolk is sealed into the middle of it and can't leak out anywhere
  • Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle on your grated cheddar cheese
  • Pop on the baking tray and into the oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden on top, leave for 12 minutes if you want a harder yolk
  • Remove from oven and serve right away.
