My dad taught me about this recipe years ago, cutting holes in the middle of bread and adding an egg in the subsequent hole. And snacking on the leftover circle of bread.
A critical, crucial step.
I'm not kidding here.
So in my house*, this is called Hole in the middle of the bread egg. Actually, I used to (up until about, oh, 3 months ago) call it "hole in the middle of the egg bread". It still sounds more pleasing to my ear, despite it not making much descriptive sense.
Create a hole in the center of the bread using a cup. Obviously, the more brightly colored cup you use, the better your end result will be. Duh.
Eat the piece of bread. Do it.
Add butter to a pan, and add the center-less bread.
Is anyone else reminded of Death Becomes Her? Such an awesome movie.
Add the egg, and salt and pepper if you wish (or any other egg accompaniment you desire).
I have to admit, this was a bit of a nervewracking moment for me. Usually when flipping eggs, I have a fairly low success rate. With camera in hand, I felt even less prepared for the big moment. Surprisingly, it went pretty well.
