Cowboy Eggs

I have seen this called many other names but we grew up calling it a cowboy egg, so I think we'll carry on the name. (We weren't as fancy back then, with the cookie cutters. We just tore out the center of the bread.) Dad made this for us our whole lives and recently my son saw something similar in a magazine. It's so easy! Here is what we did:

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Spread margarine on a piece of wheat bread.
  • Cut the center out with a medium cookie cutter.
  • Crack egg into center of bread.
  • Bake until egg is firm.
This method worked great but I think next time we'll do it the way my dad always did - on the stove top! It tastes a bit better that way - or maybe it was just the love he put into it that made it taste so good.

  • Turn burner on to medium heat and warm medium skillet.
  • Spread butter (I'm sure he used butter.) on both sides of bread.
  • Rip out center of bread and place in skillet. Put the center piece in skillet as well.
  • Crack egg into center and cook until white is almost set.
  • Flip and cook for about a minute.
