Gashouse Eggs

We love to share our eggs with our friends and neighbors in Raleigh. One week, one of  Charlie's partners Michael, picked up some eggs after he had been on call at the hospital. He sent us a picture of his morning breakfast with a nice thank you. 

Imagine my surprise when they were the most perfect Gashouse eggs - our family's breakfast staple!  My mother explained that she had seen these cooked in an old movie in the 1940's and from asking around, so had a lot of people!    

For those who don't know how to make them, here is the recipe: 

Take a piece of bread (whichever type you like) and cut a whole in the middle with either a cookie cutter or stamp it out with a glass.  Butter both sides of the bread and add to a heated pan.  Crack an egg (preferably fresh!) in the center. After a few minutes, flip over and cook to  your desired "done-ness" of egg.  We like ours a bit on the gooey side!
