Make This Recipe


  • 4 Eggland’s Best eggs (large)
  • 2 large slices bakery bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped assorted soft fresh herbs, such as parsley, dill, chives, tarragon, or chervil (use at least 2)
  • Flaky sea salt


Bring a medium pot of water up to a boil.

Carefully drop the Eggland’s Best eggs into boiling water, then set a timer for 7 1/2 minutes.

While the eggs boil, prepare a bowl of ice water and set aside.

When the eggs are finished, immediately place them into the ice water and let them sit for 5 minutes.

Lightly toast the bread, let it cool a bit, then generously spread with butter.

Carefully peel the eggs, then slice each one in half.

Top each toast with two whole eggs, then use a butter knife to gently smash them into smaller pieces and distribute them around the toast.

Sprinkle each toast generously with herbs and sea salt, then serve immediately.
