Toad in the Road

OK, so this is a staple in our house. All the boys (including the big one) love this for lunch or even breakfast. Their favorite part, of course, is cutting the whole out of the middle of their bread. It's also a lengthy process to pick just the perfect shape. Personally, I'm happy just using a cup to cut out my whole. Either way, I love these because I always have everything on hand and they taste good, too!

Slices of bread
Cookie cutters
Salt, Pepper
1-2 Tbsp. butter, for frying
Meat and Cheese slices, if desired

1. Cut your desired shape out of the center of your bread... if you don't have cookie cutters, use a cup.

2. Heat some butter or oil in frying pan. Place your slice of bread in the heated pan pan and crack the egg directly into the whole. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the egg if desired

3. Continue to fry your bread for 2-3 minutes, or until the egg is done, being sure to turn the bread once half way through.

4. If desired, layer meat and cheese on top on your hot, fried bread for a toad in the road sandwich!
