Prep time

5 min.

Cook time

8 min.

  • 4 large Eggland’s Best eggs
  • 2 large slices bakery bread
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp 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.
