Ingredients
  • 1 piece toast
  • 3 oz ricotta cheese
  • 1 hard boiled egg, cut into thin slices
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • ¼ tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1 red lunchbox pepper cut into thin slices
  • 3 small fresh parsley sprigs for garnish
Instructions
  1. Toast 1 piece of bread.
  2. To hard boil an egg, place it in a small saucepan with the white vinegar and enough water to submerge the eggs by an inch. Cook over high heat until it reaches a hard boil. Then remove from the heat and allow it to sit for 11 minutes. After 11 minutes have passed drain the hot water. Add cold water and a few ice cubes to the pot to quickly cool the egg.*
  3. Measure the ricotta cheese into a ziplock bag. Clip one end of the ziplock bag and squeeze the ricotta onto your toast in a zigzag pattern as if using a frosting bag.
  4. Slice the egg and arrange it on the ricotta toast. Season with Old Bay Seasoning. Garnish with peppers and fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
Notes
*If you decide to cook 6 to a dozen hardboiled eggs in advance, follow the same directions, but use ¼ C white vinegar.
