1 slice bread

Use a glass or knife to cut a circular hole in the middle of your bread (at least two inches in diameter). Heat a pan with butter. Then place your bread into the skillet and carefully crack an egg into the hole of the bread. Cook undisturbed for two to three minutes, depending on how you like your yolk. Flip and cook the other side for about 20 to 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper, and enjoy.
