  1. Take each slice of bread and remove a hole two inches in diameter from the center. A jelly jar lid works very well as a quick discard for the center. Using a pancake griddle or a large teflon pan, heat one ounce of clarified butter over medium heat. Toast each slice of bread on one side for three minutes. As you flip each slice of bread, carefully crack an egg through the hole and saute the egg inside. When the egg sets on one side, but the yolk is still soft, turn the toast over, careful not to crack the yolk. Saute for an additional two minutes. While the eggs are cooking, in a mixing bowl season tomato slices and shaved onions with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. For the presentation, stack tomatoes and onions in one corner of the plate. Lean the frog in the hole against the tomatoes and garnish with a rosette of three slices of smoked salmon.
