Pioneer Eggs

I've eaten this breakfast ever since I was a little girl and like to think it came from my pioneer ancestors as they crossed the plains. It's a fun and different way to eat eggs and toast, and super easy to make!

Here's what you'll need:

Butter or margarine
Syrup (opt.)

Butter both sides of your bread slices and use something circular to cut a round hole in the center of each slice. You can use a biscuit cutter or a cup, like I did. You'll just want to make sure that it's a big hole that will take up most of the bread slice.

Place buttered bread slices and circles on a heated frying pan or griddle. Break an egg in the hole of each bread slice and salt and pepper the eggs only.

Cook until golden then flip over to finish cooking.

You can eat these plain or with a little syrup drizzled over them.

A yummy way to eat toast and eggs!

We make these too once in a while, but I dip the circles in a french toast mixture for the kids because they don't like eggs unless they are scrambled. So Dean and I get the egg & toast and the kids have french toast. Works out perfect!

These are so good! My dad made these for us when we were little, but he was simple and always called them "egg in a holes"!
