Simple Egg-in-a-Hole Avocado Toast is a very simple affair with only an egg, a piece of toast and some avocado slices. You can also read how I learned a lesson about the wrong way to care for a favorite knife.
Today, I’m also eating a few words today in regard to knife-care.
And then, there is this Simple Egg-in-a-Hole Avocado Toast I could eat every night for supper.
About my favorite knife:
I confess. I can be a knife abuser. In other words, I don’t always take care of my knives as I should.
This is what can happen to a good knife after washing it in the dishwasher too many times.
How not to treat your favorite kitchen knife:
The knife pictured above was my favorite. Sad, I know. I used to say, “If I can’t put it in the dishwasher, I don’t need it.”
In fact, I once gave away 12 place-settings of blue Wedgwood with the white raised figures on the perimeter because my mom said it shouldn’t go in the dishwasher.
Fortunately, that china is still in the family.
In my defense, I want my knives to be really clean and the dishwasher water gets way hotter than the water from my faucet.
Why you should not put your favorite knife in the dishwasher:
But as you can see, abusing a knife like this will drastically shorten its life. The handle only lasted about 3 years and the blade is dulled.
Now that my husband replaced it for my birthday, I have repented and vowed to change my dishwashin’ ways.
A sharp knife will make this recipe easier…
It’s an opportune time to share a recipe for this simple breakfast or supper made easier when using a good, sharp knife.
