“A delicious runny yolk egg cooked in the center of a piece of toast and eaten with a fork is a great way to enjoy an egg in a slightly different way. My kids feel fancy when eating these.” - by rosburn
Original recipe yields 1 serving
- Melt the bacon grease in a non-stick pan over low heat.
- Cut a 1 1/2 to 2-inch hole from the center of the bread slice; lay in the hot skillet. When the side facing down is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes, flip and crack the egg into the hole; season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until the egg is cooked and mostly firm. Flip again and cook 1 minute more to assure doneness on both sides. Serve immediately.

I put the extra bread rounds in another skillet, and quickly sauted them in butter with cinnamon/sugar sprinkled on top, flipping them once -- a delicious and easy addition to this already yummy breakfast."
