Bon Appetit

A few weeks ago Marshall and I headed out to the store to get a present for a birthday party he had the following day. Ben stayed at home with the girls to get them off with their Dad for the weekend. Ben was in charge of dinner for the girls that night. Just as I was heading out the door, I got a peak of what he was making for the girls. My first thought was, "What a brilliant man! Why hadn't I thought of this before?"
He cut a circle out of the center of a slice of bread, and put an egg in the middle and cooked it.
I asked Ben where he got this idea from. He told me that his Step-Mom cooked them this way before.
Now why on earth had I not thought to do this before.... or why on earth had I never seen this before the age of 26? It seems as if I have been on a different planet for the past 26 years. ;)
My 4 year old still raves about the dinner "Beny" made for her and her sister. She thought it was the coolest thing ever.
So, a couple Sundays ago, I decided to make the same thing for them for breakfast. Mady refused to use a fork. She picked the whole darn thing up, and plopped it into her tiny little mouth. She had the egg yoke running down her shirt, in her hair, and all over her cute little face.
Maybe I should cook the yoke all the way through next time.
Oh well, I got some pictures of my cute little egg faced girl. :)

My little brothers call that "Buckin' Bullseye Egg Jackpot!" Maybe I'll make it for my guys tonight.

ya my mom used to make them for us when we were little too, she called them "chicken in a basket" :) clever uh? They are pretty fun to make!! Normally I break the egg but with it done this way it has a little support, which = not broken (as much)!! :) is that a sausage patty or the middle of the bread? We use the middle part like toast!! :)
like i said FUN!!

LOL! Clever names! I love it! :)

Ashley, the cirlce thing on the plate is the bread that was cut out of the slice. Sausage would be good with it though. :) My kids didn't really eat the cirlce part of the bread as it was just plain with butter on it. I think I will try putting some jam on that part of the bread next time I make them. I, for one, loved the cirle part of the bread for dipping. YUM!
