Funny how a recipe can have many different names. My mom and dad made these for us when we were kids and they called them One Eye Pete's. They used a round biscuit cutter to cut out the bread and when cooked, the egg looked just like an eyeball, lol. I made them for my kids and now the grandkids. We always cook bacon with ours as well and it gives the toasted bread/cooked egg a wonderful flavor.
We make a version of this all the time, but frying it with the bacon was new to us and a nice addition. My cookie cutters are too small for this so I just use a glass to cut out a big circle. So quick and easy and delicious. Uses ingredients I always have on hand too. Thanks for sharing.
We call these "bullseyes", and serve them to our grandchildren now that our kids are grown. We never thought to use the bacon, and just butter both sides of the bread instead of melting butter in the pan. I love these, so now will have to try it with bacon. Hey, bacon makes everything taste better, right?? I also like the idea of using cookie cutters to make festive shapes. Can't wait to try it at our next sleepover!
Thanks, Debber! There are a myriad of these recipes here, but none so as "decorative" as the one's shown by Rickman.
My Dad used to make this for me as a kid. "Egg In Bread" was my favourite weekend brekkie! I now make it for my own children :) It was nice to see this on here!
Loved it - the last time I had this was when I was a toddler! We had so much fun making these and of course (fried in bacon grease) the taste is a five star, but we had some difficulty with the execution since the eggs overflowed out of the even very large-sized holes. On our second try we got it by just putting the yolk in the hole, and then adding a little more white, not enough to quite fill it. I fried the extra white and am going to have a couple healthy "hole sandwiches" for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks!
This made for a very nice and easy breakfast! I fried the bacon first, then used a very small amount of the fat to fry the bread/eggs. I added the eggs as soon as the bread hit the pan because I did want to flip them one more time to get an over-medium consistency. They looked pretty, not to mention my 3-yr-old could pick up the whole thing and eat it without making a big mess - a huge plus! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Debber!
