Here is the cured starter about to go to the fridge.
It doesn't look very appetizing here ,but trust me, adding just a 1/2 cup of this yeasty concoction turns out a heavenly flavored bread. Last night I wasn't feeling very well, so Greg made dinner. He heated up the leftover chili, and toasted some of the fresh sourdough for us. I didn't feel like chili, but the toast sounded good. Then I had an idea.....Ever heard of Toad In The Hole?
You take a nice thick slice of any type sturdy bread...like sourdough. Butter both sides, and cut out the center of the bread with a biscuit cutter. Save piece you cut out.
Heat pan and place bread in hot pan to grill. Crack an egg into center of bread where cut out is. Also place cut out piece of bread alongside pan to toast as well, leaving no part wasted. If you like your egg a little runny, don't crack egg into center until after bread has been grilling for a minute or two.
Flip toast when egg is partially set up. Also flipping extra cut out piece.
Fantastic comfort food! I was supposed to go to the movies today with my Mommy, but I am coughing my head off, and we decided to postpone. So I will stay home, and sew instead, and try to get over this cold.
Happy Hump Day!
