Bread N Egg Brekkie

NAME: _Bread N Egg Brekkie

1 round lebanese bread or arab khobs
2 eggs
1 tbsp EVOO
zartar (optional)
2 tbsp water

Brush the bread both sides lightly with olive oil, roll up into a cylinder and cut into strips.  Toss strips into a cast iron skillet or non-stick pan, start heat.  

Meanwhile, beat two eggs, the water, and the salt in a bowl.  As the bread begins to turn golden in the pan, toss occasionally to get all the bread strips crisping.  When crisp, drizzle the egg over while tossing the mixture gently.

When the egg mixture begins to get golden brown, toss the zartar into the mixture lightly and remove from heat.

Serve immediately, the above makes two serves if served with sliced tomato and lettuce and perhaps a few thin strips of haloumi or fetta cheese.

Zartar is a dried wild thyme and sesame seed and sumak spice mixture, and it adds a lovely flavour to the dish.  Other things you could try are:  Add a teaspoonful of sesame oil to the EVOO before brushing it on the bread.  Add some pine nuts or tiny pumpkin seeds or sesame seeds or sunflower seeds to the pan at the same time as the bread.  Add a touch of dried crushed chillies.  Try these separately or in combinations, the flavours combine quite well.
