When it comes to a cooked breakfast, eggs usually play a starring role when we are piecing together a fry up.
Options for the versatile ingredient include scrambled, fried, hard-boiled or poached - making them the ultimate breakfast food.
But it turns out there may be an even better way to be cooking them after a simple one-pan egg recipe went viral online, as reported by Belfast Live.
The tasty dish puts an innovative twist on an egg sandwich and can easily be upgraded by throwing in additional ingredients including cheese and bacon.
The social media sensation was tried out by TikTok user @Ivycher who explained she begins by breaking two eggs into a bowl and seasoning them with salt and pepper before beating the eggs with a fork.
Once the mixture is smooth, she pours it into a pan on the heat before dipping in two pieces of bread to coat each slice with egg on both sides.
She then leaves the pieces of bread side-by-side in the pan with the egg cooking underneath before flipping the whole thing over once it's ready to eat.

With the egg now on top of the bread, cheese and ham are added to one side before the bread is folded in to create the perfect toastie sandwich with no mess.
The video has had more than 250,000 views and racked up hundreds of comments as the amateur cook explained the filling can easily be personalised, writing in the comments: "Use chicken slices or tuna or whatever you like instead!"
Others couldn't wait to try it for themselves, as one replied: "Brb gonna go make this for breakfast right now!"
A second said: "I made my sister this for breakfast and she really liked it. Thanks!"
Another added: "Who needs Gordon Ramsay when ya have Ivy."
