Eggies in a Basket

This is one of my boys favorite breakfasts to wake up to and it is sooo easy. I've seen eggies in a basket called lots of different names and prepared lots of different ways, but this is my favorite way:
I start by preheating a pan to medium heat and add canola oil and butter ( WARNING this is not a low fat dish!) Then I use a cookie cutter to cut a whole into the bread of choice. This morning I had some left over sourdough bread and it made the best eggies in a basket. I cut a heart out of this one in the spirit of the Valentine's month. I put the bread in the pan of sizzling oil and butter and cracked an egg and put it in the whole. When it looked about half way cooked, I flipped it over and cooked the other side. I personally think it tastes best when the yoke is runny and mixes with the sourdough so great! Then I like to fry up a little ham on the side and serve with fresh fruit and orange juice and milk. The boys really enjoyed breakfast this morning and I really enjoyed the extra hugs before they left for school!!!! !
