Fun breakfast food! Just the basics. Sissy (my 22-year-old sister who would sooner starve than cook for herself) looooves this one!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • For each serving

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of your fav bread (mine's whole wheat!)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 2 slices cheese (I use 2% milk white American)
  • butter, for pan
  • butter, for the man overboard

Directions

  1. Heat a bit of butter in a large skillet.
  2. Take a small glass (it has to be smaller than the bread) and press the top of it into the bread to cut out a circle. Remove the circle (the "man overboard") and set aside.
  3. Place the 2 slices of bread with the circle cutouts onto the pan.
  4. Flip them before adding the egg so both sides of the bread are buttery.
  5. Drop one egg into each hole in the bread slices. (the bread is the "boat").
  6. Add a little more butter to the pan and throw on the "men overboard". They make nice little crispy buttery toast bites to accompany the egg.
  7. Fry until desired consistency. Sissy doesn't like her eggs too runny so I flip them and cook both sides. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. If you want cheese on them -- add it on right at the end just long enough to melt one slice over each boat.
