Here's a fun all-in-one-pan kind of breakfast combo - the egg in the hole, aka egg in a basket or cowboy breakfast, amongst other names. I enjoyed this growing up during family camping trips, but we called it "toad in a hole", which is quite different than the English dish with the same name of sausage links in Yorkshire pudding.
All you need here is one slice of good bread + one good *pastured egg. Make a hole in the center of the bread. Add a small amount of butter, olive oil or a little fat from cooked bacon or breakfast sausage in a pre-heated egg pan. Crack an egg in the center of the hole, cook one minute and flip (or turn with a spatula). Cook both sides. Top with fresh herbs such as chives, thyme & parsley. Serve immediately, toad optional!
*Benefit of pastured eggs vs factory eggs:
1⁄3 less cholesterol + 1⁄4 less saturated fat + 2⁄3 more vitamin A + 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids + 3 times more vitamin E + 7 times more beta carotene + 4 to 6 times more vitamin D
