Toad in the Hole

My husband rocks. He makes breakfast on weekends, and sometimes, he does things like this, where he uses a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make a regular Toad in the Hole breakfast even better. It's super simple, and the hearts would be perfect for Valentine's day breakfast! He heats the griddle or a frying pan and butters one side of each piece of bread. He uses a cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of the bread. He places the bread, butter side down, onto the griddle and sprays oil in the hole. He cracks an egg and drops it into the hole and lets it fry. Once the white is almost set, he flips it.He seasons it with salt and pepper and it's great! He usually fries the cut-out parts, too. For ours, he leaves the yolks nice and runny. For our son, he cooks them almost all the way through. This is especially good with farm fresh eggs.
