Egg in a Nest

Ingredients:
1 egg
1 slice of bread
1 tablespoon butter

Directions:
Crack egg into bowl and set aside. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter (circle, heart, star, or flower), cut a shape out of center of bread. Melt butter in frying pan over medium heat. Place bread in pan and fry lightly on one side (you can also fry cutout shape). Flip bread over and reduce heat to low. Carefully pour egg into cut-out hole in middle of bread. Cover pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until egg has set in the bread “nest.” For an over-easy egg, flip egg and bread and cook on the other side.

We always called it a Fireman’s egg

My husband calls it a Hole-In-One. I’ve never heard of such thing until he made one. Tasty!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
