When I was a little girl, my mom would make a special breakfast every once in awhile….it was my favorite breakfast. She called it Egg Bread. Now having two boys of my own, I make it every so often for them too, and they love it probably just as much as I did. I'm not sure if it's the egg blended into the bread or if it's the melted cheese on top that gets us every time…. Enjoy!To make egg bread, here are a few simple instructions. I'll also post the recipe below in printable format, so you can print it if you'd like.

First, butter both sides of your bread. Then take a round cutter or a knife, and cut holes in the center of your bread. You'll fry up the holes with the egg bread. These are the best part; crispy, crunchy goodness. We all try to sneak them while the bread is cooking.Next, you'll melt butter on your griddle or in your pan. This helps to keep the egg bread from sticking.Finally, you'll add your bread to the griddle first…. then your eggs. You'll smash the yolks, as the eggs begin to cook, and spread them over the bread just a bit.Cook well on both sides, and then add the cheese. Let the cheese melt, and your egg bread is ready to serve.

  1. my dad use to make these for us as kids. I haven’t made these in years. Never tried using a can, we use to do it with a small cup. I loved the circle breads, they were the best part.

  2. I use to make this for my kids when they were little I called it eggs in a basket, they are good your way too

  3. I didn’t have anything else circular to cut the bread, so I reached when I reached for my round cookie cutter, I grabbed the snowman instead. Didn’t make a difference with the bread itself, of course, but the kids LOVED the little snowman shaped toast! Family loved the recipe.

  4. Hi, we have made these for years now. We call them “one-eyed Pete’s” and we simply tear the hole in them, then butter the slice and cook. We do not bother the yolk nor put cheese on it. Just brown them and flip over to finish cooking. You know it sounds good right now, may just have to fix one as it is lunch time…….. lol
