Where Would You Love to Cook Today?

So clean and fresh!
I know the last kitchen was blue and white....
but doesn't it just make you want to mess it up...
I love the curtains and the dark counter tops with the white.
And who doesn't love an island!
I got this one from:

And I can just hear kids and smell breakfast.
So lets have:

Pop-Eye Eggs with Cheese and Salsa

(Ingredients given are for two servings, recipe adapted by Kalyn with memories of Pop-Eye Eggs made by her mother.)

1 tsp+ 1 tsp olive oil
2 pieces whole wheat bread (I use Jack Spratt Bread sprouted wheat bread.)
2 large eggs
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup low-fat grated cheese (I use Four Cheese Mexican Blend)
salsa for serving, optional but good

Have all ingredients ready on counter.  Use a small juice glass to cut a hole directly in the center of each piece of bread.  (I use a glass that's 2 1/4 inches across, and save the holes from the bread to make whole wheat bread crumbs.  You can also toast the holes and dip them in the egg.)  

Use a heavy frying pan large enough to hold both pieces of bread.  Heat the pan for about 30 seconds over medium heat, brushing the pan with 1 tsp. olive oil.  Add the pieces of bread and cook until one side is browned and toasted, about 2-3 minutes.  Turn pieces of bread over.

Drizzle 1/2 tsp. of oil into the center of each piece of bread and immediately break an egg into the hole, being careful not to break the egg.  Season eggs with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, then sprinkle each piece of bread with about 2 tablespoons of grated cheese.  Cover pan and cook until cheese is melted, egg white is firm, and yolks are as done as you'd like them, about 3-4 minutes.  (I cook mine for about 3 minutes in a cast iron pan for a slightly runny yolk.)

Serve hot, with salsa drizzled over if desired.

If you haven't hit this blog for recipes you really should! 
She has a very nice, well put together and easy to maneuver thru blog.
Love it!
