What I Made Wednesday {Easy-Breakfast Sun Toast}

I know, today's W.I.M. Wednesday is not so earth-shattering. Whether you've heard it called Birdie-in-a-Nest or Hole-in-One, you've seen this before and the concept is not rockin' your world. I get it. But I'm sharing it with you as a reminder to make it, whatever you want to call it. Why? Because it's fast, easy, delicious, nutritious, and portable (unless your kids like the yolk runny). So, consider this a reminder to think of this breakfast during the school morning rush and you can feel good you're sending them off with full tummies and alert brains ready for learning. All in less than 8 minutes!

We call it Sun Toast.


What You'll Need
1 Egg
1 Slice of bread ( I use 100% whole wheat)
1 pat of butter, less than a Tablespoon
1 Juice glass or biscuit cutter to create the hole
Frying pan
Spatula, to flip


What You'll Do
1. Melt butter over Medium heat. Don't burn it!
 
2. While the butter is melting, take your juice glass or biscuit cutter, about 3 inches in diameter, and press out a circle of bread from your slice. I use 100% whole wheat bread.

3. Plop the bread into the butter once melted. Then crack open the egg right into the hole. Does anyone else see a heart in the yolk?
4. Fry for 1 - 2 minutes then flip over to fry the other side for another 2 minutes. Cook for a shorter time if your kids like their yolk runny. Take off the heat, plate, and serve when hot.
Yummy, fast, easy, nutritious, delicious!
What You'll Need to Know to Finish
Like I said, this is such a good breakfast when sending off our young minds. It gets our tiniest scholars the protein they need to feel full until lunch time and feeds their bodies with the energy they need to get through their busy morning. Add some fruit and a glass of milk and even the Surgeon General would be sharing this post, maybe even become a Follower, too. How about you?

What go-to breakfast meals do you make for your kids before sending them off to school? I would love to know (we could use the variety).

My children aren't up yet, but i'll be making this today - thanks for the reminder.

Our school breakfast routine involves hot foods (I'd be happy with cereal, but hubby requires them): our fave is egg, ham and cheese on an everything bagel, or rye bread (or pumpernickel, my personal fave). Oatmeal, omelettes, wow - they all involve eggs. ;)

Michele, I think eggs are the miracle food! That ham and cheese on an everything bagel is going on to our breakfast menu list. Thanks for the idea and can't wait to try it!!!!!

My son wanted me to share with you that this breakfast cannot be re-heated. When I made this this morning, my son was still sleeping. Then, when he got up, he got ready to go to golf and had to eat it in the car. I re-heated it and he said it was NOT a good idea. So, when I say, serve immediately, I mean it!!!!!

We call it Toad-in-a-Hole, and I like to use a fun cookie cutter rather than a glass or round cookie cutter to make it festive! Last fall, I did a pumpkin shaped egg. :)

My kids always called this "Sunday School Eggs" because I made them on Sunday morning! Yummm!

mm--breakfast this morning!

We also called this Toad-in-a-Hole. Not sure why that sounded appealing as a kid, but it did and this brought back nice memories. I came over from Tatertots and jello.

I did see a heart in the yolk! Sounds and looks like a great breakfast. I wouldn't imagine it would be a good reheat item. Thanks for sharing - Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

My 21 year old brother still begs my mom to make these for him lol. He covers them in syrup. Thanks so much for linking this up to our weekend Wonders party. Hope to see you back on Thursday :)

This brought back memories. I loved this when I was a kid. I don't think I have ever made it for my boys. I will now. Thanks for sharing.

I just found out about these a few months and fell in love with them the first time I made them! I have buttered the bread on both sides beforehand, though, but I always felt like I was using a TON of butter. I think your way of melting the butter in the pan is such a good way to cut back on the butter. I'll have to try it next time! Visiting from My 1929 Charmer.
