One of Michelle's favorite bloggers is The Pioneer Woman. She now has a show on the Food Network. It's a Saturday morning ritual in our house now. Last week, she made Egg-in-a-hole and we had to try it. It seemed so simple and yet they were raving about it.

Here's what you need:
1 piece of bread
1 egg
about 1 Tbsp of butter (we used a little more to make sure the bread was nice and toasty)
salt & pepper to taste
biscuit cutter 

Here's what you do:
Start off by cutting a hole in the center of a piece of bread using a biscuit cutter. You can also use the rim of a glass if you don't have biscuit cutters.

Heat the butter in a 10" skillet.

Now slide in the bread, making sure it gets coated with the butter

Next, crack an egg directly into the center of the hole. Season with some salt and pepper.

Let that cook for about a minute. You'll see that the bottom of the egg sets up pretty quickly. Now, carefully flip the egg and the little toast circle.

Let that cook for another minute or so.

The little toast circle is surprisingly yummy. It didn't make it to the plate...
