Peanut Butter Toast with Egg

I’m not a traditional breakfast food eater. I come up with this combo a while back and had to post it again, it’s so good! Crunchy Peanut Butter Toast with an Egg on Top = Yummmmm

PB Toast with Egg

Ingredients
1 piece of whole wheat toast
2 tbsp crunchy nut butter
1 egg, cooked medium with dill and red pepper
1 tbsp agave
hot sauce

Directions
1. Warm sautee pan to medium, spray with cooking spray, crack egg, season and cover with lid. This will help the egg to steam it’s self. Keep an eye on it and turn the heat down if needed. Should take about 5 minutes depending on how runny you like the yoke.
2. Meanwhile, toast bread and spread with nut butter.
3. Top toast with egg, agave and hot sauce if desired.
4. Enjoy!

I really like the sweet and spicy combo here and I cook my egg so the yoke is almost hard, I don’t like runny yokes. Play around with it and make my recipe for this your own!
