  • 2 slices 21 grain bread organic
  • 4 eggs organic
  • 2 egg yolks organic
  • 1 tbsp water
  • A pinch of sea salt + more to taste
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp pistachios roughly chopped
  • 1/3 c mixed fresh herbs( chives dill, thyme, basil) , roughly chopped
  • 1/2 c Caramelized onions
  • 2 tsp salted butter organic


  • In a small bowl beat together the eggs, sea salt and water until completely incorporated.
  • Heat up a large skillet over medium low flame. Add the butter and swirl around the pan to cover the entire surface.
  • Add the beaten eggs to the pan and let them set for a minute. Do not scramble. Once you can see the bottom has set use a spatula and push the eggs from the sides of the pan towards the middle, allowing the uncooked eggs on the top to slide underneath the cooked eggs.
  • Tilt the skillet to help the uncooked eggs slide around, and remove from heat once the eggs seem barely undercooked.
  • Meanwhile toast or grill the bread and warm up the Caramelized onions. Divide the Caramelized onions between the 2 slices of bread.
  • Use a flat spatula to scoop the eggs out of the skillet and set on top of the toast layered with the Caramelized onions underneath.
  • Roughly chop all the herbs and divide them on top of the eggs. Sprinkle with the pistachios, black pepper, some red pepper flakes and a few flakes of coarse sea salt like Fleur de Sel !
  • Finish with a little drizzle of extra virgin olive oil before serving .


Goat cheese would be a lovely finishing touch here.
