Afternoon Snacks: Eggs-in-a-Cranberry-Basket and Lemony Apples

These snacks were made from stuff that I found in our fridge.

Egg-in-a-Cranberry-Basket

Ingredients (per serving):

2 slices cranberry wheat bread (I used Gardenia)

1 medium-sized egg

1 tablespoon cream cheese (I used Philadelphia)

1 teaspoon cooking oil

a pinch of salt

a pinch of sage (optional)

a pinch of garlic powder (optional)

Instructions:

1. Heat a pan (without cooking oil) and lightly toast both sides of each slice of bread.

2. Remove the bread from the pan and stack them. Carve a circle in the middle of the stacked bread and remove that circle to leave the center hollow.

3. Spread the cream cheese between the slices of bread. I carve before putting cream cheese so that the bread will be easy to carve; it will be softer once cream cheese is spread between the slices.

4. Put the cooking oil on the heated pan and placed the hollowed bread stack on it.

5. Crack the egg and put it directly into the center of the bread stack. You may break the yolk if you wish.

6. Sprinkle salt, sage and garlic powder onto the egg and bread.

7. Put the heat on low. Cover the pan and let it cook for about 15 minutes. Important: Don’t rush it. If the heat is too high, the bread will get burnt before the egg is cooked. Low heat with a covered pan will let the heat build up in that small area and it will cook the egg slowly.

8. Optional: If you like eggs on medium or hard like I do, you can flip the egg-in-a-cranberry-basket once its egg is cooked. Then, let it sit in the heated pan (with the fire turned off) for 5 minutes more.

Lemony Apples

Ingredients:

2 fuji apples

1 lemon

3 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions:

1. Slice the apples.

2. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze it onto the apple slices.

3. Toss the apples in the lemon juice.

4. Add 2 tablespoons brown sugar and toss again.

5. Put in the freezer for 30 minutes, or 60 minutes in the fridge.

6. Before serving, toss the apples again and sprinkle a tablespoon of brown sugar over it.
