Bacon and Cheese Egg Toast
I have seen this called "Egg in a Hole" and "Egg in a Basket".
It's a super simple recipe that I just changed up a bit by adding some bacon and cheese.
Simply cut a hole in the middle of your sliced bread. I used whole wheat sandwich bread, but you could use any kind of bread. A big thick Texas toast would be good for this recipe.
I sprayed the baking sheet with cooking spray, buttered the bread and cut out a hole (use a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or free-hand it).
Crack the egg in the hole, sprinkle salt and pepper over the egg, top with cooked, crumbled bacon and some shredded cheddar cheese. Pop it in a 400 degree oven and watch closely until it is cooked to your liking.
I baked the piece that was cut out (and also buttered) as well. The idea is to cook the egg sunny side up and use the extra piece to dip in the runny yolks. I, however, baked this until the yolks were hard. You can see in the pic it is quite toasty. Since I was serving this to kids, it was less messy than runny yolks, but really it should be cooked less than I did here.
Serve it up and watch your kids ponder how the egg got in there :)
What I should have done was make fun shapes like this:
