Funny how a recipe can have many different names. My mom and dad made these for us when we were kids and they called them One Eye Pete's. They used a round biscuit cutter to cut out the bread and when cooked, the egg looked just like an eyeball, lol. I made them for my kids and now the grandkids. We always cook bacon with ours as well and it gives the toasted bread/cooked egg a wonderful flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Per 2-egg serving

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper


  1. Melt butter in LARGE frying pan over medium heat.
  2. To one side of the pan, fry bacon slices (or in a separate pan).
  3. Using a small, round cookie cutter, remove the center of the bread.
  4. Lay bread slices in pan; lay "holes" to the side; fry for 1 minute, then flip to other side.
  5. Immediately crack eggs, gently tucking into the hole (one egg per toast slice).
  6. Turn heat down a smidgen to give eggs a chance to firm up.
  7. Eggs can be flipped again if the eater wants them "hard" or leave sunny-side up if a runnier egg is desired.
  8. SERVE: Place egg/toasts on plate, smear "holes" with a dab of jam or honey, lay to the side, add the bacon and holler: "Breakfast is served!".
  9. IDEAS: Use an herb-butter for frying, to add a different flavor.
  10. IDEA #2: Use cookie cutters with unusual shapes: flowers, stars, snowmen, snowflakes!
