Toast the bread. Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a small nonstick skillet. When it sizzles, crack your eggs into the pan, salt and pepper the top, and cook for a minute or so. Then turn the eggs and cook them on the second side until the yolks are as runny or firm as you like them. Slide them onto the toast, top with the second slice, cut in half, and serve.

Cooks' note:
And now for those extras:
- Lay thin slices of your favorite cheese over the hot toast. A sharp Cheddar is always good, but you might try something more adventurous, such as an aged goat, a Tuscan pecorino, or a slice of manchego.
- Add a sliced ripe tomato.
- Spread some pureed chipotle chile in adobo or some harissa over the toast it you go for heat and spice.
- For robust flavors other than chile, spread your toast with tapenade, Romesco Sauce, Chimichurri Sauce, or Marjoram Pesto.
