Notes:

This is probably one of the easiest recipes I've ever redacted. :D  In fact,
it's our usual Sunday brunch minus the green peppers, mushrooms, sausage,
etc. 


Recipe:

1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons butter
4 eggs

Saute the onions in butter.  When they are done, lower the heat and
add the eggs.  Stir continously to keep eggs from scorching.  Remove
from the pan when the eggs are solid.  Serve hot with a side of toast.
