Fried Egg In a Hole
1 slice of bread, with a large hole cut out in the middle
1 whole large egg
1 Tbs. butter
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Melt butter in a pan, over medium heat. Place bread slice, with hole cut out, in the pan. Carefully break the egg open and pour into the hole. Using a fork, gently break the egg yolk. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese.
Cook, uncovered, until bottom is toasted and egg has set underneath. Using a spatula, gently flip the bread over (yolk will still be runny on top). Continue to cook until that side is also toasted and set. Remove from pan and butter the edges of the toast. Serve immediately.
