I've always loved Egg in a Hole: Take a piece of your favorite bread and use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut a two-inch hole in the center. Melt some butter in a pan, put the bread in, then crack an egg in the bread hole. Season to taste, flip, and pull off the heat when the egg is cooked to your liking. The bread will be crisp and buttery, great for soaking up yolk.

One last secret: put the leftover bread circle in the pan with the butter as well. Divine.
