Things You'll Need

  • Slice of bread
  • Cookie cutter or round glass, 2-inch to 3-inch diameter
  • Butter
  • Egg

Step 1: Cut a Hole Into the Bread

Use a cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of a slice of bread. Pick a fun shape, like a flower or a heart, or use a simple round glass for a circle if you don't have a cookie cutter. Whatever shape you choose, you'll want it to be at least 2 to 3 inches in diameter to allow space for the egg to cook.
