Nest Eggs AKA Eggs and Bread

1 piece of bread
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
maple syrup for serving

Take one slice of bread and butter bread on both sides.  Lay bread on cutting board and cut out a circle using a cookie cutter or a glass. In a medium skillet over medium heat place bread in pan.  Allow one side to cook, once golden brown flip bread.  Immediately crack egg into the egg center, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.   Cover with lid or dome with a heat safe bowl. 

Allow to cook until the white is set and the yolk is runny.  Be careful of your cooking temperature, too high a temperature and the bread will burn before the egg cooks, and too low a temperature the exact opposite.

Serve immediately with maple syrup if desired.
