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.
Things You'll Need
Step 1: Cut a Hole Into the Bread
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.
Step 2: Butter the Bread
Butter both sides of the bread as well as both sides of the cutout piece.
Step 3: Brown the Bread
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.
Step 4: Slide an Egg in the Hole
As the other side browns, crack an egg into a shallow bowl, then carefully slide it into the center hole of the sliced bread.
Step 5: Cook the Egg
Cover the pan and cook the egg for several minutes, until the whites are done to your liking.
Step 6: Present the Feast
Season the egg with salt and pepper and serve with an array of colorful side dishes like fresh greens and sliced tomatoes.
