Egg in a Hole

This is one of my kids favorite breakfast recipes.  It's fun to make and to eat and of course it's easy and delicious!


4 whole eggs
4 slices of bread (any kind you like)
butter or margarine
salt and pepper to taste


Take 4 slices of bread and using a circle cookie cutter or the rim of a round glass cut out a circle from the center of each slice of bread.   In a large skillet or on a flat griddle melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter.  Place bread slices on to buttered skillet and then crack an egg into the center of each slice of bread. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cook on med/hi heat on the first side for a few minutes until the bread becomes golden brown and the bottom of the egg begins to set.  Then carefully flip over each egg/bread slice using a large spatula.  (I like to re-butter the skillet before cooking the other side. I just lift up the bread slice slightly and slide another small pat of butter under each bread slice and then flip over).  Cook on second side for another 3 minutes until egg is set to medium.  You want the yolk to be soft and run slightly but not be under cooked.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve hot.
