Recipe by Half Baked Harvest and this one is a keeper.

It’s Sunday and its that one morning I get to wake up at 8 in the morning with no kids begging for breakfast. Just because they are all still in bed including the husband. I thought this would be the best time for me to cook my kind of breakfast and Half Baked Harvest page has always been filled with recipes that I saved for ‘recipes to try’.

The recipe calls for pita/naan but since I have bought a loaf of sourdough from Bakes.bynina; Im just going to go with that.

So… lets get to the recipe and this first step you should NOT skip.

Perfectly grilled sourdough on a hot cast-iron pan.

Yes, you have read it. Your sourdough toast need to be super crunchy but still soft inside (you won’t get this if you do it in a toaster). On top of that, the butter and hot pan will give that golden-brown crust thats just pleasing for anyone you are about to serve this toast to;.

Ingredient for toasting the sourdough

Sourdough, sliced

Lotsa butter

Tool : Cast-iron & a pestle.

Steps for toasting
  1. Heat up the cast-iron with a layer oil on it.
  2. One the cast-iron is hot enough, drop a dollop of butter on it (it will spread and sizzle) and immediately place a sourdough slice on that sizzling butter.
  3. Take the pestle and let it sit on that sourdough for a good minute.
  4. Keep checking on your bread and once golden, do it on the other side.
  5. Trust me, you won’t regret doing this.

Ingredients for Chilli Oil

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Step for Chilli Oil
  1. Combine all ingredients and set aside.
  2. Note: I opted the paprika out because the smoked paprika has enough flavour to it.

My idea of perfectly fried egg is crispy and has runny egg yolk. Once you have fried all your eggs. Time to plate it.

Go from the bottom , ok! Im sure you can plate it better than I do.
My Sunday breakfast.


  1. The bread can be replaced with pita or naan or you can try roti canai too lol. Im just kidding there *or not*. Do give this breakfast a try or if its too heavy, make it your brunch.
  2. I recommend that you have it with a runny egg-yolk. The burst of flavours you get from the Za’atar and Chilli oil combined with that runny egg-yolk – out of this world.
  3. For the greens, you can put thyme / basil / dill / or anything your heart desire. No right or wrong in making the dish yours.
