Perfect Breakfast Re-Visited

I promise I will have a real post for you soon.  Work was crazy the last 3 days, I haven't cooked a ton, but I am making dinner tonight and as promised will share the Herbed Chicken and balsamic potatoes with you all very soon!
In the mean time, I just couldn't help but share my breakfast with you.
Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make us happy.
That is definitely the case for me with this simple, yet always satisfying breakfast.
Egg in the hole, bird's nest, bull's eye eggs, toad in a hole (what?), frog in a hole (okay, really? come on), one eye'd monsters, nest eggs, ect.
Regardless of what you call it, it is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts around
The best part?  It takes about 2 min to make!
If you have never tried this, you're crazy!
Grab an egg and a piece of bread and do it NOW!
I have blogged about this before, but check out the improvement in the photo's, almost hard to look back at the old ones.

One piece of bread
One egg
Butter your bread, then use a ring mold or simply the top of a glass to cut a circular hole in your piece of bread.  Heat a small skillet and place your holey piece of bread in the skillet.  Fill the hole with your egg.  Sprinkle with S&P.  Allow to cook until whites of the egg has just set and bread has browned, then flip and cook just long enough for the bread to brown.  You can cook longer if you don't like your egg runny, in which case you are probably weird.  Don't forget to fry up your little circle of bread also, I swear its the best part! 
Serves 1.

And I couldn't resist showcasing my absolute favorite part of every morning!


  1. If you want to add another weird name to your already long list: My dad used to call them peek-a-boo pancakes. And we'd use cookie cutters to cut out different shapes, then he'd set the cut out back on top of the egg so when you'd lift it up it would be like 'peek-a-boo'.

    1. I love that name! And what a great idea for kids, someday when I have some, I will definitely be doing the pee-a-boo pancake! Thanks for reading and thanks for sharing that story :)
