Every Easter morning my dad would make us a special breakfast he called, “Bunny in the Hutch”. I have no idea where he came up with the name for our special breakfast but I later learned that most people simply call this egg in toast. I like “Bunny in the Hutch” better!
Since Joe doesn’t eat eggs I haven’t really thought about “Bunny in the Hutch” until our recently Whole30 Challenge, which reintroduced me to my love of eggs and ironically keeps me from eating a lot of bread. However, I will still eat bread on special occasions, I think Easter is a special enough occasion especially for “Bunny in the Hutch”.
Bunny in the Hutch
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 egg
- Use a cookie cutter or glass, cut out a hole from the middle of your bread.
- Butter both side of the bread.
- Place a tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium-high heat.
- Begin to brown 1 side of your bread then crack open the egg and pour it directly into the center of the bread.
- When the white of the egg is firm, flip the toast and egg over.
- Cook until done.
It really is so simple yet so fun. You could use any kind of cookie cutter to make the egg shape fun. I used a simple flower shape. I also like to add a bit of jam to the remaining bit of bread.
