Valentines Day Breakfast

Show a little love with these yummy Manhole Eggs! I have been making these since I was a kid. I used either a a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut the hole. Many years ago, I began using a heart shaped mold and in one of Martha's recent issues, she used a heart shaped mold as well. Great minds think a like, lol!
Preheat skillet over medium heat. Butter both sides of 1 Slice of Bread. On a clean flat surface, cut out the shape of you choice. Butter the lower inside and outside edge of the cookie cutter and set aside. Brown the bread shape on both sides, turning once. Break open 1 Egg into a small dish and have it ready, the rest goes fast. Place bread in skillet and brown the first side. Turn over the bread so the brown side is up. Add your cookie cutter back into the hole. Add a 1/2 tsp Butter to hole and when melted, add the egg. When the egg appears firm enough to turn, remove mold and turn entire piece of bread in one careful motion. Cook for another minute or so. Serve at once!
