How to Make an Egg-in-a-Hole  

1. Cut a 2-inch hole in the center of your "nest" with a cookie cutter or small drinking glass. 

2. Cook the nest in a buttered ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat until toasted on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and crack 1 egg into the hole; season with salt and pepper and cook until the white starts setting, about 2 more minutes.

3. Transfer the skillet to a 375 degrees F oven; bake until the white is set but the yolk is still runny, about 4 minutes (or up to 8 minutes for deeper nests).
