After about 3 minutes, flip the bread and cook on the other side until the egg has set. Slide onto a plate and serve.
My mom used to make this for me when I was little. Great with ketchup!

This has been one of my go-to quick breakfasts since I learned to make it in home-ec for boys in 7th grade. It was called "Eggs in a Box" Interesting to find such a lifetime favorite here.

My favorite breakfast growing up. My mom buttered the bread before cooking. We called them bird nest eggs.

My kids sometimes request this for days straight, but just change the sides and it's good! Great breakfast and sometimes, even a better dinner!

I used to make this for my son and daughter when they were little. My son would always request it when he was older. Comfort food at its best!

I had this for the first time while visiting my son and his wife in New Lenox, IL I ordered mozzarella cheese with it. Oh my gosh! It was so good.

I grew up eating these. My dad used to call them Roy Rogers Eggs. I guess he made them on the show once. They are still nostalgic for me. For extra yumminess, butter the bread before frying them.

This is good with just regular white sandwich bread.

One of my favorite breakfasts growing up and as an adult. Mine never turn out as pretty as your picture. But, they always tastes great. Plus, it's crazy easy to make.

Delicious recipe! When done, I flip it back to the egg side up and place a piece of American cheese on the top. It's so good and fast.

My father used to make this for me when I was a kid and called them "a**holes on toast". We'd laugh. I had a weird childhood.

My mom called this "Egyptian-eyed" sandwiches. I think it was from an Abbot & Costello movie, where they made them; and called them that. I still make them 50 years later!

Our family term was always "Egg in a Basket".

My kids request this every Saturday now. It's easy to make so they usually get what they want. I have my oldest crack her own egg into the hole and she loves being part of the cooking process.

I agree with Carletta - this is commonly referred to as a 'Bird Nest'.

I love this recipe over veggies in the morning. The egg bursts over the savory veggies and makes the perfect sauce. You can also bake these, but watch out because the eggs can get rubbery if in the oven for too long.

My mom made this for me and now I make it for my kids. It's a family classic and we LOVE it!
