    Sharon123's Note:

    History has not recorded the name of the genius who first cut a hole in a piece of bread and fried an egg in it, but many parents have used this to make a breakfast their kids will eat! This is adapted from Country Living magazine.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Set the broiler to low. Punch out a 2 1/2-inch hole from the center of each bread slice(a biscuit cutter works well). Stir the melted butter, salt, and pepper together and brush the mixture on both sides of the bread slices and cutouts, including the inside of the hole.
    2. 2
      Toast the slices and cutouts in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until golden, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip the bread and crack an egg into each hole.
    3. 3
      Cover and cook until egg sets, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Place the skillet under broiler just until the white is fully cooked. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
    4. 4
      Note:.
    5. 5
      If desired, just put the egg in the hole when you first put the bread in the pan(and don't cover), flip it and cook the other side of the egg instead of putting it under the broiler.

      I make this all the time, for my big kid of a husband. I like to add cheese on top.

      Childhood memories revisited with great fondness though I did lighten it up a little by toasting one side of the bread under the grill/broiler and then putting the uncut side down in the pan which had been lightly sprayed with olive oil spray and began the cooking process till white was just cooked and the yolk was soft and runny; once cooked I just lightly dabbed a little butter on the cut out bit of bread (used wholemeal/wholegrain), so all up for 1 serve used about 1/2 teaspoon of butter. Thank you Sharon123, made for Everyday A Holiday.

      I remember eating these as a kid, nice comfort food :) I used regular bread (as it is what I had on hand). Thanks for sharing :)
