Boil half-a-pint of water in electric kettle.
Pour boiling water into a small saucepan to 3cm depth.
Bring to simmer heat (tiny bubbles rising from bottom of pan).
Put medium slice of bread in toaster.
Break large egg into small cup.
Gently pour egg into simmering water and time for 3 minutes.
Remove egg with slotted spoon, drain and plonk (technical term) on toast.

1 large egg (93 cal, 7.8g protein, 6.8g fat)
1 medium slice of bread (85 cal, 3.6g protein, 16.2 g carb, .7g fat)
10g butter (74 cal, 8.2g fat)
Total: 252 cal, 11.4g protein, 16.2g carb, 15.7g fat
Tip: 10g butter isn't much, so spread it around the edges of the toast, leaving the middle bare. Once the egg is on the toast, you won't notice the lack of butter on the middle section, but you will miss its presence on the crust.
