It’s Father’s Day next weekend so this delicious Duck Fat Egg Toastie is a breakfast idea just in time for the day. Granted, for this spin on “egg in a hole” the use of duck fat is rather extravagant but everything from bread to brussel sprouts fried in duck fat is so good.

The duck fat adds a rich almost meaty flavour to the fried bread. The recipe is not much of a recipe and could not be easier to make. Use a cookie cutter to remove the centre of a piece of bread. If you use a standard retailer bread ,make sure it is a sturdy bread and quite thickly sliced.  A good quality sourdough or ciabatta would be fantastic as long as it does not have too many holes for the egg to run out.

Heat some duck fat in a pan and fry the bread on the one side until golden brown and crispy. Turn it over and gently break an egg into the cavity. The trick is to make sure so that the bread does not burn while the egg cooks. I find that cooking for a few minutes, then placing a lid on top, taking the pan off the stove and letting the egg cook further in the covered pan works best.

What you serve the Duck Fat Egg Toastie with is entirely up to you (or you dad). You can serve it as is or with some roasted tomatoes and crispy bacon as I did in the images. Fried sausages will be delicious or something lighter like smoked salmon. A vegetarian option would be serving it with some smashed avocado and a dollop of homemade ricotta or labneh. The options are really endless. Enjoy!
