DIRECTIONS

  • Cut a circle in the middle of a piece of bread.
  • If you don't have a round cookie cutter, the top of a glass will work.
  • Heat a skillet or griddle sprayed with Pam or Mazola.
  • Place the bread in the pan.
  • Put about 1/2 t butter in the hole in the bread.
  • Heat the butter until very hot.
  • Crack an egg in the hole.
  • Use a spatula to move the white around so it gets done.
  • When the egg is fairly well set, turn the bread and egg over to cook the other side, being careful not to break the yolk.
  • In the meantime, toast the holes from the bread for dipping in the yolk.
  • Oh, and salt and pepper as desired.
  • I guess you could toast the bread before you put it in the pan, but I've never tried it that way.
