Crispy Eggs and Instant Toast

I reeeeeally like this recipe.

You'll want a food processor or blender to make it. Or, you can be like me and use a plastic bag, a hard object, and the floor. You decide.

Four or five slices of good, stale bread (I used my own homemade white).
One or two eggs.
A pinch of salt.
One or two eggs.
Olive oil.
Teaspoon fresh or dried thyme, rosemary, basil, or whatever your favorite herb is.
Teaspoon garlic or one clove, peeled (and minced if you're using the bag method).
Small handful of your favorite shredded/grated cheese.

Combine everything but the eggs and oil in your food processor and make it into crumbly crumbs. Pou a handful into a small bowl and drizzle in a little olive oil so that the crumbs clump together (I actually find it works better just to scramble the egg into them, but if you want your eggs over easy on top or something, that won't work for you). Toss it all into a skillet (crack your eggs on top, if that's how you like them), cover, and cook till done. The end. Easy and delicious.

If you don't have a food processor or blender, put your bread in a heavy duty plastic bag and smash until it turns to crumbs. Then add everything else and shake. Yum.
