Basil Arugula Crispy Egg Toast

Have you been going to fancy brunch places for this beauty? Well, no need to do that on Valentine’s Day (or ever)! Eating something that looks–and tastes– as sophisticated as this should be a crime! There’s no better way to start Valentine’s Day than with basil, arugula, goat cheese, and egg toasts.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 c. olive oil, plus 3 tbsp. for frying eggs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 slices bread
  • 1/4 c. chopped fresh basil
  • arugula
  • goat cheese

Directions:

  1. Crack 1 egg into each of 2 small cups. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil on medium-high until very hot. Carefully add eggs; stand back, as oil will sputter. Cook until whites are golden brown and crisp around edges and set around yolks, 2 minutes. If edges are dark but whites are not set, remove skillet from heat; cover 10 seconds or until whites are cooked. Season with pinch salt and pepper.
  2. In blender, combine 1/2 cup olive oil with chopped fresh basil. Toast 2 slices of bread. Top each with arugula, crumbled goat cheese and one crispy egg. Drizzle with basil oil.
