This is just another way my grandma use to fix eggs for me when I was little. I still eat them this way today.


  1. With drinking glass turned upside down cut a hole in the center of your bread slices.
  2. Save the circle you cut out of the center of the bread.
  3. In frying pan over medium high heat, melt butter.
  4. Put bread slices in skillet along with the circles you cut out of the center of the bread.
  5. Crack an egg in each of the holes of bread.
  6. Cover skillet for a minute or two or just until egg is starting to set up, and when bottom of bread is browned, then turn and fry on other side until browned.
  7. Make sure you turn your little circles of bread over also.
  8. Serve with your little circles of bread on top of the egg.
  9. Season to taste.

We had an unexpected snowstorm in Israel and we are all stuck in the house. I thought this would be fun to make for the kids for lunch. Similar to Moonstruck Eggs by Heather Feather, but much cuter with the hats! Needless to say, my kids thought these were adorable and gobbled them right up!

This turned out really good! I've tried making something like it before. The step of covering the skillet for a few minutes made a difference. One tip: do avoid overcooking use the smaller burner on your stovetop. Also,I used a butter spray instead and saved quite a bit on calories. Next time, I think I'll try using a cookie cutter shape especially with Easter coming around the corner I think a bunny will create a little more intrigue and excitement from my children.

This was adorable! I added a slice of salami and provolone cheese to top off my egg hats. Cute, thanks for posting!
