Easter Morning Breakfast: Bunny in the Hutch

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
  • butter


  1. Use a cookie cutter or glass, cut out a hole from the middle of your bread.
  2. Butter both side of the bread.
  3. Place a tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Begin to brown 1 side of your bread then crack open the egg and pour it directly into the center of the bread.
  5. When the white of the egg is firm, flip the toast and egg over.
  6. 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.
