Chef Dies...but he left us a recipee.."One Eyed Texas Toast...

Well Sir....on a much lighter note than all that thar heavy political stuff and negative wurld events....the other night....Chef from South Park.. died...and it looks like fer good (that'll teach ya Isaac Hayes...we'll just write yur ass right outta the script). If'n y'all normally watch South Park...and missed it....Chef died in a most gruesome way (in the typical South Park humorously sick style), "Vlad the Impaler" would have been proud. Now...there's more dark humor to the manner and mode of death, but I don't wanna ruin it for all a ya that didn't see the episode.

Just before he died however...he left a simple but very tasty breakfast y'all go.... One Eyed Texas Toast....( sometimes called "Birds in a Nest")

- Eggs
- Italian Bread
- Butter (or a little bacon drippin's)

Slice the Italian bread about 3/4" to 1 inch thick. Using the rim of a small glass or jar, punch a hole in the center of each slice of bread you're going to pan toast. Keep the punched out holes. Butter both sides of the bread slices and the punched out holes.

Melt more butter(or a little Bacon drippin's if'n y'all have some) into a medium hot frying pan (preferably a Cast Iron Skillet). Place 2 or 3 slices of the bread into the frying pan (don't crowd). Toast bread slice in butter(or drippin's) for about a minute or so and then turn with your spatula. Carefully break an egg into the hole of each slice being careful not to break the yoke. Fry for about one minute or until egg appears cooked to your liking. Carefully turn the bread slices and eggs and fry for about twenty seconds if you like your egg yokes easy. If you like hard yokes, fry a little longer. Toast up, and serve the punched out holes in the frying pan as well. Serve with pan fries or home fries, and as always, a good mug a coffee of your liking.
