These cowboy eggs are easy & sure to bring a smile!
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice bread
  • 1-2 Tbsp butter
  • Pinch of sea salt
  1. Butter skillet on medium to medium high heat.
  2. When butter is melted, turn heat down to medium heat. Take a small circle of bread out of the center of the slice of bread (to make a small 2 inch diameter hole in the bread).
  3. Place bread in skillet and crack egg into hole.
  4. Slide bread around getting it all buttery. After a few minutes (when bread on underside is toasty), flip bread/egg carefully over so as to not break the egg.
  5. Cook an additional 2 minutes until egg white is set, but yolk is still runny. Add more butter as needed. I love a lot of butter!!
  6. Serve with a fork so kids and cut or tear pieces of toast for dipping in the egg. Sprinkle egg yolk with sea salt.
  7. I am able to make 2 at a time in a large skillet.
