Uitsmijter : Fried egg on toast

That’s Dutch, not Spanish. It means “to throw out”.


The name is traditionally said to come from the other meaning of uitsmijter which is “bouncer” (as in nightclubs). This being eaten/served as a late-night/early-morning snack at a cafe or club just before everyone gets kicked out at closing.

  • Toasted white bread
  • A slice of cheese
  • 1 egg; sunny side up (fried in 1 T of good olive oil)
  • ham under the egg (optional)
  • tomato slices under the cheese(opt)
  • salt & pepper
  • mustard (opt) (not horrid yellow mustard though)

This has been my favorite quick snack these days. Use fresh eggs (the yolks are more shapely) and keep the yolk runny.

There has been no actual “cooking” going on around here for months. This is the closest I’ve come recently so I’m tagging it as a “recipe”.
