  • In a small bowl whisk together 1 egg and the milk. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Using a 2 inch cookie cutter cut out a hole in the middle of each slice.
  • Take each piece of bread, included the cutout and dip into the egg mixture and soak it on both sides for a couple minutes.
  • In the meantime melt the butter in a large skillet. After the butter has melted and is hot add the bread slices and the cutouts and fry until the bottom is golden. Flip over and in the hole of each slice of bread crack an egg. Continue cooking for another minute or two then flip over and cook for another minute or so or until egg is done to your liking.
