Grandpa Norm’s Egg-in-a-Hole

When my step-dad made this for my kids, it became an instant classic.  I’ve made it for them dozens of times since then.

Recipe courtesy of Grandpa Norm.

Using a cup with a smallish (~2″ or so) diameter, cut a hole out of a piece of bread.  Heat some butter in a nonstick skillet.  Put the bread (and the circle you removed) in the butter for a few seconds, then crack an egg into the hole.  Lightly salt and pepper the eggs.

When the bottoms are done enough that you can flip the egg/bread without breaking the yolk, do so (flipping the circles at the same time).  Cook for a minute or so more.  Be sure to leave the yolk runny so you can dip the toasty, buttery circle in it.
