Bull's Eye, Egg in a Basket, Toad in a Hole, Cowboy Eggs Recipe

Whatever you decide to call it, it's delicious and easy to prepare. Use cookie cutters to make it festive or just do what my mom did and use a glass to cut out a circle.

Here's the cutout.

For 1 sandwich

1 slice of bread (I used Pumpernickel)
1 teaspoon butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
Butter for frying

Butter both sides of your bread then, cut a shape or hole in the middle. Heat a dab of butter in a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Place the bread in the pan and fry for a minute. Break the egg into the hole and cook until the bottom is golden. Sprinkle with granulated garlic and pepper. Once golden, give it a gentle flip.

Sprinkle the other side with granulated garlic and pepper. Continue to fry until the egg is cooked how you like it. I like the yolk runny. When you break it, it gets all over the toast and it's delicious. Sprinkle the cutout with granulated garlic and pepper and fry it up as well. It makes a tasty little piece of toast. Serve with ketchup.


Tip: If you want your egg sunny side up, simply toast one side of the bread in the pan. Once golden, flip it and then break the egg into the hole. That way both sides of your bread with be toasted. Don't cook this over high heat. You'll burn the bread before the egg has a chance to cook.
