9 Egg in a Hole

It is no secret how much Nate and I love breakfast for dinner. So when I saw the Pioneer Woman make "Eggs in a Hole" on her show a couple weeks ago, I knew that they would be a new staple in our house!
Egg in a Hole
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. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and melt in the butter. When the butter is all spread out, place the piece of bread in the skillet and crack the egg straight into the center of the hole. Cook until the egg sets a bit on the bottom, 30 to 45 seconds. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper. After about a minute, flip it over with a spatula and salt and pepper the other side. Move the whole piece of toast around the skillet, soaking up all of the butter. Let it cook until the yolk feels soft.
