Author Notes

This Japanese-inspired breakfast dish was born of necessity. I had some leftover miso butter and thought that the best way to use it would be to slather it on toast. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I topped it with a sunny-side up egg and sprinkled furikake seasoning over it. It was an umami kick in the mouth! Now, I always have miso butter on hand so that I can enjoy this quick and easy breakfast at least once a week. —Jake Nabasny
