She Eats Breakfast: Bull's Eye

There are many names for this dish.  What you know this as will be determined by where you grew up or where your mom or dad grew up!  My mom called it a Bull's Eye.  (This is the way Wikipedia is spelling it though in my mind it was spelled "Bullseye"...) 

Whatever you call it, it's a yummy & easy way to start the day!
  1. Heat a skillet or frying pan to medium.
  2. Take a slice of bread and cut a hole in the middle, about 2 inches in diameter.  (Use a small cookie or biscuit cutter or a table knife works too.)
  3. Butter both sides of the bread and the "hole" as well. 
  4. Place the slice in the pan and put the "hole" piece next to the slice in the pan.
  5. Get an egg out of the fridge and crack it open, dropping the yolk into the hole, directly onto the hot pan.  (The white will spread out around a bit or be contained mostly in the hole, either way is fine.)
  6. Sprinkle everything with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. Once the egg is set a bit and the slice is nicely browned, carefully flip the whole thing (and the "hole") with a pancake turner or sturdy spatula.  Let the Bull's Eye continue cooking & browning until it is as cooked and browned as you like!  (Some like to leave their egg soft or even a bit runny, some like it completely cooked through.)
  8. Slide onto a plate and enjoy with a glass of cold orange juice or milk.
TIP:  Have your oldest child (who can safely use a knife and the stovetop) prepare this for everyone for breakfast.  This would be a fun weekend treat if your child goes to school, or a perfect weekday "life skills" project for a homeschooled child!
