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, you’ll want it to 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 shape.
Step 3: Add Butter and Brown the Bread
Add a pad of butter to a hot sauté pan, and then add the slice of bread and cutout shape to the pan. Brown both sides of each.
Step 4: Slide an Egg Inside
Crack an egg into a shallow dish, and then carefully slide it into the center hole of the sliced bread.
Step 5: Cook the Egg
Cover the egg and cook it for several minutes, until it reaches a desired finish.
Step 6: Present the Feast
Season the egg with salt and pepper and serve with an array of colorful side dishes.
