Delight your loved ones with an impressive breakfast in bed that's high on presentation but really comes together in just a few minutes. Trust: this is one classic egg recipe that's stunning to wake up to.
- Slice of bread
- Cookie cutter or round glass, 2- to 3-inch diameter
Use a cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of a slice of bread. Pick a fun shape, like a flower or a heart, or use a simple round glass for a circle if you don't have a cookie cutter. Whatever shape you choose, it should be at least 2 to 3 inches in diameter to allow space for the egg to cook.
Butter both sides of the bread as well as both sides of the cutout piece.
Add a pad of butter to a hot sauté pan and add the slice of bread and cutout to the pan. Brown one side, then flip.
As the other side browns, crack an egg into a shallow bowl, then carefully slide it into the center hole of the sliced bread.
Cover the pan and cook the egg for several minutes, until the whites are done to your liking.
Season the egg with salt and pepper and serve with an array of colorful side dishes like fresh greens and sliced tomatoes.
