  2. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. When the frying pan is hot, place the bread into the pan and toast for 1 minute. Turn and toast the other side for 1 minute.
  3. Break the egg into the hole in the bread. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to your preference.

I did spray my non-stick skillet with PAM. I also had to flip mine to get the egg to fully cook. Quick and easy to get you going.

Although it is hard to make it look perfect, it still tastes delicious.

I ate this a lot when growing up, my mom always called it Egg In a is a basic recipe that would work well, however you should grease the pan first and use a biscuit cutter to make the hole in the bread, you can make it different shapes with cookie cutters for a fun time, kids like this a lot...a good basic food, that is easy to prepare.
