Egg In A Basket for dinner

Ever since I saw Olympia Dukakis making this egg dish in the movie Moonstruck, I have been intrigued. It looked good. It looked kind of exotic. It looked easy. Bingo, we have a triple hit! So I was chatting with a person I know on Twitter about how to make it and it really is as easy as it looks. You cut a hole in a piece of bread, butter it on both sides, and toast it on a griddle or flat pan. When it is toasted and sturdy, you crack an egg into the hole. Cook the egg over medium. If you use a thicker piece of bread and a smaller egg the white will not run out under the toast. Toast the bread you cut our from the hole and use that to sop up some yolk. Put on plate, eat, slurp, enjoy!
