For the toast

  • 6 large eggs a week old
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 4 slices artisan bread sliced ½" thick
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Optional toppings and garnishes

  • Fresh herbs such as dill, basil, or parsley
  • Micro greens
  • Smoked seafood such as lox
  • Sriracha
  • Everything but the bagel seasoning blend
  • Furikake Japanese rice seasoning blend
  • Red pepper flakes


  • Cook the eggs. Bring water to a boil in a medium sauce pan, then add a splash of white vinegar. Set a timer for exactly 7 minutes, then carefully lower eggs into water. Do not adjust the heat.
  • Prepare ice bath. While the eggs are cooking, fill a large mixing bowl with ice water. Remove the eggs. As soon as the timer goes off (or a little before -- err on the side of undercooking!), quickly transfer the eggs to the ice bath. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Peel the eggs. Once the eggs are cool enough to touch, lightly tap the shells on a counter on all sides, then gently peel. Set aside until needed.
  • Toast bread. Grab your favorite artisan bread, then slice into pieces about ½" thick. Toast, then set on plates.
  • Mix the mayo. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and lemon juice. Spread a thin layer on each slice of bread.
  • Smash the eggs. Place one peeled, soft boiled egg on top of each piece of toast. Cut in half, then use a fork to smash.

  • Garnish and enjoy. Season each piece of toast with a generous pinch or two of flaky sea salt, then garnish with fresh dill, micro greens, freshly cracked black pepper, and any additional toppings. Enjoy immediately!
