The idea behind this dish is that the cooked egg looks like a golden sun rising out of the snow (egg whites). This signifies the change from the winter to the spring.


Sprinkling of nutmeg
2 eggs, separated
2 slices of toast, buttered
2 slices cheese, any kind


  • Preheat grill
  • Separate egg whites from yolks. Place the white in a bowl, add the nutmeg and beat until stiff
  • Take you butter toast and spread some of the beaten mixture over the toast
  • Make a small indent in the center of the toast and put a yolk into it. Sprinkle with salt and place the cheese on top
  • Place under the grill until the egg is cooked and the cheese melts, about 4-5 minutes
  • Serves 2

Although it’s a very simple recipe it’s a bit fiddly as egg whites aren’t the easiest thing to beat. I had to cook three of these before I got the timing right so the eggs weren’t totally solid
