Place bread slices and cut outs on medium heat in a large skillet. (A flat surface griddle is much easier to use especially if making a lot of these at one time as long as you have a cover for the griddle.) Toast until lightly browned and then flip.
Place cookie cutters back into each bread slice and crack an egg in to each cookie cutter.
Cover skillet/griddle and cook two to three minutes. I always check at two minutes so the eggs won’t be overly done. Remove from heat and use tongues to remove cookie cutters. Use large spatula to transfer to plates.
Serve with the cut outs for egg dunking and jam or jelly if desired.
Don't forget some fruit and/or bacon on the side. ;-)

Thanks, Deeli. I'm putting this on the list for our weekly Breakfast for Dinner night.

I used to make these but instead of using a cookie cutter, I would cut the circle out of the bread using a drinking glass. In the frying pan, I would just break the egg into the circle and it would stay put. If you want to use a cookie cutter you could cut the hole in the shape of a star or whatever. Great for kids!
