There's something about me that many of you may not know. I have gone my entire life turning my nose up to any sort of egg that wasn't either scrambled or hardboiled. I didn't make such a decision based on taste. No, no. My dislike for runny yolks was merely fear of the unknown.
Just over a year ago, I was out having brunch with my mother. I ordered an item that, unbeknownst to me, came with a fried egg on top. The place was pretty busy and I had a mimosa in me, so I figured, why not? Liquid courage at it's finest! I tried it and I liked it. Oh, happy day!
Over the last year, I hadn't really been fearing the previously inapproachable yolky versions of eggs. And in the past weeks, I've had more and more. Dare I say... I actually like runny yolks now? Gasp.
This past month alone, I've had a poached egg over an organic BLT salad and an okonomiyaki with a fried egg over it (twice!) So, I figured it was long past time that I try my own hand at making a tasty bite using my new found friend.
This breakfast toast is filling, full of protein and fiber, and packed with loads of amazing flavor! I had some black beans on hand that I had cooked up earlier in the week, but a can of reduced sodium would work just as well. I also went for a pico that was made fresh in my local market. But, if have the time and desire, you are more than welcome to use one that's homemade by you.
If you're like I was, and are not a fan of runny yolks, this would be good with scrambled eggs on top too. Or an egg cooked in anyway that you prefer really.
I served my toast up with some fresh fruit and a side of halved cherry tomatoes. This toast was definitely a fork and knife experience though. Yum!
