Easy Breakfast: Fried Egg Nest

I finally got around to multitasking quick yet tasty and filling fried-egg-on-toast breakfast last weekend. Call it what you like*, it takes the whole putting-the-bread-in-the-toaster step out of the equation and adds an element of fun. Now if I could just master cooking my egg the perfect amount of time, with just enough runniness.

*Wikipedia says this recipe idea is known as bird's nest, bull's eye eggs, cowboy eggs, egg-in-the-hole, eggs in a blanket, elephant egg bagel, frog in a hole, gas house eggs, moon eggs, and Rocky Mountain toast.

Fried Egg Nest

Sandwich bread
Salt and pepper

Heat a skillet on medium heat. Cut a circle out of your bread slice and remove. When skillet is heated, add butter and let it melt. Set bread slice and cut out in the hot butter. Crack an egg into the center. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. At desired time, flip bread with egg and cook to your egg-cooking preference.

Recipe can be multiplied for number of servings desired.
