Egg in a hole

Growing up - when ever I was sick my mom would make something called 'egg on toast' for my sister and myself.  It was a soft boiled egg served over a piece of toast.  To this day - one of the foods I want when I'm not feeling well is eggs and toast.  So when I stayed home sick from work one day last week, I decided to try this new version of 'egg on toast' - essentially it's egg in toast - but it goes my many different names - egg in a hole is the one I prefer.  I'm not sure how I managed to go 30 years without eating this - but I am glad I discovered it.  It is much so simple to make and fun to eat.  
  • 1 slice Of Your Favorite Kind Of Bread
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 tsp. Butter
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
1. With a biscuit cutter, the rim of a glass or a cookie cutter -  press a hole in the center of the slice of bread.
2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and melt the butter in it. Place the piece of bread in the skillet and crack the egg straight into the center of hole.
3. Cook for at least 30 seconds or so before attempting to move the bread. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper to taste. After about a minute, flip it over with a spatula and salt and pepper the other side.  (I also added in cut-out piece of bread to the pan to toast - it is great for dipping into the egg yolk!)
