Also known as a Bird Nest you could probably make it without this recipe. Pretty easy but it is one of my favorties so enjoy!

 1 egg
 1 slice of sourdough bread
 1 Tablespoon butter, divided
 salt and pepper to taste

Cut a hole in the middle of the slice of bread using a small drinking glass or a cookie cutter. You want the hole big enough to drop the egg in but not so big the slice of bread falls apart.


Heat the frying pan to medium heat and add half the butter to the frying pan when hot.
Add the slice of bread and the removed “hole” to the pan and fry until lightly brown. Flip and repeat on other side.


Once both sides are lightly brown add the remaining butter to the pan in the open hole of the bread and crack the egg open and drop the egg in the hole. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Fry for an additional minute or two and then flip to fry the other side. Add salt and pepper to taste.
