Toad in the hole

If you're in a brunch mood, here's a quickie recipe for an alternative to eggs and toast.  This pic is from a friend's brunch, where I was introduced to "Toad in the hole"!


6 slices bread (sourdough is a nice option)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
6 eggs

Preheat a large skillet to a high heat.
With a small cookie cutter remove centers from bread (next time I think I'll try a different shape than round).
Butter the bread on only one side.
Grill bread until lightly toasted.
Crack an egg into each bread hole (be careful not to break the yolk).
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook until eggs are cooked to your desired consistency.

Stay hungry my friend!
