Egg in a basket - ready in 10 minutes

My new favorite breakfast food to make is Egg in a Basket!! It's such a fun and cute way to make eggs. I used this recipe as inspiration, and made my own notes and modifications below.

What you'll need 
1 slice of bread of your choice (I love potato bread)
unsalted butter
1 large egg
salt and pepper
ketchup (if you like it on your eggs)
hot sauce (if you like it on your eggs)

Cut a 2-inch round from the center of the bread. It doesn't have to be perfect. Make sure it's big enough so the egg can cook well but not so big that it touches the crust and breaks/cuts into the outer edge of the bread. Butter a nonstick skillet. (I usually just rub the butter stick over the pan lightly until the pan is covered. Turn heat on to medium. Place the slice of bread on the skillet and ad a small dab of butter in the center (about the size of a small nut.) Crack the egg into the hole. Cook until golden brown underneath, about 2 minutes. Flip the toast/egg carefully. Cook the second side until golden brown also, or however you like your eggs cooked (about 2 minutes for a slightly runny yolk, longer if you want your yolk cooked.)

Transfer the egg in a basket to a plate and season with salt and pepper. I also like to put ketchup and hot sauce on my eggs. You can toast the rounds and serve those too if you'd like. Use fun cookie cutters for the hole if you want to make it more festive.
