Ingredients

How to make it

  • Put bread on cutting board and place an empty glass upside down on top of it
  • With a slow circular movement, press glass down until it cuts through the slice. (you can use a knife but this is rounder and also fun for kids)
  • Melt Butter and then place the bread in pan with centre ring on the side until both are golden brown
  • Flip both of them over
  • Put a tiny bit more Butter in hole and pour an Egg in the centre
  • Dont worry if it overflows a little
  • Cover pan for about another minute until white of egg has hardened enough
  • Enjoy

    I love these! We put the toasty circle on top of the egg part and called them "eggs with a hat"! Wonderful recipe!

    We call these "pirate eyes". Make sure to serve the hole propped slightly askew over the egg, that is the "eye patch".

    Thanks for this memory this evening. I was just sitting here thinking of my father who passed away 11 years ago, long before I was ready to let go of him. This recipe brought back my dad making these for me as a young girl, what a lovely thought and memory, THANK YOU!!

    My dad use to call this the bull's eye breakfast. Yep, the kids love 'em and I've since heard them called other names as well. He use to toast the cut out circles on the unoiled pan and set them aside for the tops before adding the butter to fry the eggs in holes. My sister in law called them " peek-a-boo eggs ". That was a great recipe to share. :)
