Ingredients

  • 2 Slices Bread
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoon Butter at room temperature
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Using a sharp round, Cookie Cutter cut out the center of the bread. Butter each side including the cutouts.
  • Heat a heavy griddle on medium-high heat. 
  • Place the buttered bread including the cutout on the hot griddle.  Cook for 1-2 minutes until it is light golden brown and is crispy.
  • Flip the bread slice and the cutout. 
  • Break one egg slowly on the hole. Sprinkle little salt and pepper. Cover and cook for a minute on medium heat serve immediately.

Notes

I like to spread the toasted cut out with butter and sprinkle on a little cinnamon-sugar.
