  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
  2. Using a glass or cookie cutter, create a hole in the middle of the bread, removing the center so it is perfectly circular. Butter the bread lightly on both sides and lightly fry it on one side, and then turn it over. Crack the egg into the hole in the middle of the bread and fry quickly. Be careful that the bread does not burn. Serve warm.

We call it egg-in-a-hole, and I have perfected the art! First, it helps to cook on a low heat and cover with a lid to cook the egg without burning the bread. Also, I sprinkle salt pepper and Se...

We call this a Nest Egg. Love it! Over easy is best achieved if you add a splash of water (1 or 2 tablespoons) to the pan once you crack the egg and the pan is hot, then cover it. The steam cook...

We always made these growing up. We called it "Egg in a Basket". I do it a little differently though. I butter both sides of the bread, then cut out the hole. I don't add any additional butter t...

Delicious! Very easy and great for breakfast! Neat idea to combine your eggs and toast together. I waited until the egg was cooked and added a slice of cheese. Great with a side of Canadian baco...

As a mother of 5, I need to cook in bulk. I make these "Toad in a Hole" as we call them, all the time. I usually use a loaf of bread and a dozen and a half or so eggs. I make them all first, ...

This is one of my favorite ways of eating eggs. Once the white is set on the bottom, I like to flip the toast for about thirty seconds to make my egg over easy. Yum!

This recipe is great with any bread. I made it with rye once, pumpernickel another time... it's a very good recipe to try different things with and very hard to mess up. It's one of my boyfriend...

I've never had these before, and I'm sooo glad that I found this because my son now thinks I'm the Bee's Knees for making these this morning. Not only are these completely easy, but cute as wel...
