One-eyed Jack

When my husband was a kid his dad would make him one-eyed Jacks for breakfast. He grew up loving this simple and delicious breakfast. He was excited to share this meal with us. Although, we have had it several times in our home. I thought it was about time I share it with all of you!

It’s a fun and healthy meal for kids and filling enough for adults.
I LOVE eggs for breakfast! One of my favorites is drippy eggs- you know when the yolk is still a little runny. AKA sunny side up?
Brent has mastered the art of the dippy egg combined with the one-eyed Jack, so I just leave him in the kitchen to do his thing. I must say, I love when he makes breakfast for us.

He even threw a couple extra drippy eggs on there for me. And the center of his toast.  Now that’s love.

Ingredients:
  • Slice of bread per person- brown rice bread, eziekiel or whole wheat
  • 1 egg per slice of bread
  • butter- (I use smart balance with omega-3)
  • *Extra eggs if you desire.
Directions:
  1. Heat a skillet
  2. Spread each slice of bread with a thin layer of butter
  3. Using the top of a cup (or sugar cookie cutter) remove the center of the bread.
  4. Place on a *HOT skillet and crack an egg into the center. *The skillet has to be hot or the egg with spread out through the bottom of the bread.
  5. After the egg turns white flip it toast the other side!

Ogden Valley 50 miler.
From the park, runners make their way up Trappers Loop to Snowbasin ski resort and down Old Snowbasin Road. Once in Ogden Valley, the course will go west towards Pineview Dam for an 18 mile loop around the reservoir.  Then they run back up Old Snowbasin Road and down Trappers Loop into Mt. Green to finish back at the park.
Yes, 50 miles!!!
You start at 5am. You have 13 hours to finish.
I had every intention of running the whole thing with them but I opted out to sport this all day.Winking smile

Congrats girls! I couldn’t be more proud of them! What an amazing accomplishment! Way to inspire!
Hope your all having a relaxing Sunday so far!
Q. What was your favorite childhood breakfast?
Q. Would you ever run 50 miles?
Next year, I’m in for 50. As long as hot pink wigs and lingerie are involved.Winking smile
