He's famous for his physics theory, now try Einstein's relatively tasty egg breakfast

The great theoretical physicist breakfasted on these slightly sweetened fried eggs. It might sound strange at first, but there's no reason eggs have to be served as a savoury breakfast. The honey and butter give the eggs a golden sheen.
Melt a knob of butter in a wide frying pan. Once fizzing, slide in two really fresh, free-range eggs and fry until almost cooked to your liking. Add a teaspoon of honey and, once that's melted, tilt the pan slightly and repeatedly spoon the hot mixture over the egg until the top of the yolk is just opaque. Einstein liked his with fresh bread rolls, but they're equally good on hot buttered toast.
