A childhood favorite for a lot of us, Egg in a Hole still holds up as a great breakfast. Dress it up with a hollandaise for a faux Eggs Benedict or add some salsa for a Huevos Rancheros feel. The possibilities are endless with a blank canvas like this.

Ingredients:
 4 fresh bread
 3 tbsp clarified butter
 4 eggs

Directions:
1

Using a 2 inch round biscuit cutter cut a hole in the center of the bread slices and remove the bread round.

2

On a griddle or in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat, melt half of the clarified butter. Put the bread on the griddle and toast until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the bread and add the remaining butter, tilting the pan to spread the butter across the pan.
