- 1 slice of your favorite kind of bread
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 egg
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
With a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass, press a hole in the center of the slice of bread.
Move the whole piece of toast around the skillet, soaking up all of the glorious butter. Let it cook until the yolk feels soft. Here's the key: golden brown toast, white (not brown/burned) whites, soft unbroken yolk. Perfect.
