I saw a funny thing today as I was leaving work.
It was a man. Riding a unicycle.
But that wasn’t the really funny part.
He was – wait for it – walking his dog at the same time.
Now that takes talent. Real talent there. I only wish I had that kind of talent.
Which got me thinking….what are my talents? I’m fairly decent artist with a pen. I can do one heck of a cat “meow” (sometimes it even confuses Olive). I can move my “pointer” toe independently of all the other toes. I can make a sound that most closely resembles the love child of a chipmunk and a dolphin. Which, I guess, isn’t so much a “talent” as just plain goofy. But hey…whatever.
But riding a unicycle while walking my dog? You’ve got to be joking. I can barely ride a normal bike these days. Let alone introduce unpredictable and easily distracted four-legged friends. One frisky squirrel and it’s all over.
So I’m in the market for some better talents. And I think, with this breakfast sandwich, I’m on the right track. A delicious and filling meal in less than 5 minutes?
Oh yes, my friends. Talent. And now it’s yours too.
Simple Egg Sandwich
Adapted from Deb of Smitten Kitchen
1 large egg
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup cheese of your choice, I used a mix of parmesan and mozzarella
2 slices turkey bacon, cooked (I like to sprinkle freshly grated black pepper on the bacon as it’s cooking – try it! Serious yum!)
2 slices bread of your choice
Salt and pepper, to taste
With a fork, beat the egg until the whites and yellows are combined, adding the appropriate amount of salt and pepper. In a medium skillet, melt the butter and add the egg. Swirl the pan to evenly distribute the egg and cook for only a few minutes until the top is set. Add the cheese in the middle and fold the edges around the cheese to form a square with egg on the outside and cheese in the middle (see image, above).
Place the egg square on the mayonnaised (totally a word) bread and top with the bacon.
