My mom used to make these for us as children. We LOVED them. It just made breakfast magical to me. I made them for my kids a couple of weeks ago and they can't seem to get enough of them. It really isn't a recipe so much as an idea, but here it is just the same!
Heat a skillet and melt butter in the bottom. Cut a hole in a piece of bread (I used a mason jar lid). Place the bread in the pan. Crack an egg in the middle and let it cook for a minute or two until the outside turns white. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then flip, carefully, so you don't break the yolk. Cook on this side for a minute or two until the egg is cooked as much as you like it.
I have also seen these made inside a slice of bell pepper, YUM! Gonna have to try it!
