Saturday Morning Experimentating

WHAT IS THAT?! A heart-shaped egg cooked into the middle of a piece of bread? What kind of witchcraft is this? Alright, alright, calm down, y'all. This was my brunch today. Well, two pieces of this gloriousness + tabasco sauce, the ways that eggs should be eaten. Here's how you do it, just in case you ever get bored enough.

1) Piece of bread
2) Get a small cookie cutter, any shape, preferable something adorable.

3) Isn't that cute? (Sidenote: We took the little heart shaped pieces and made mini cinnamon toast.)
4)Butter both sides of the bread, and drop into a warm skillet.

5) Crack an egg directly into the cutout. Let it sizzle for about 1-2 minutes.
6) Gently flip. Cook the other side till the egg is the way you like it. I like mine less runny, and I don't mind a little burnt bread, so I leave it in the skillet a bit longer than you might like.

And Voila! A disaster worth eating on a cold and wet Saturday morning.

This is called a 'hole in the wall' My Mom used to make them for us when we were kids and now I make them for my kids. Not sure why you used the heart shaped cookie cutter as you can't see the shape once you crack the egg in the bread..
