Snowman Toast


my senior year in college a good friend taught me how to make what she calls African Toast.  I know there are many names for it out there and I think I remember someone saying that Cher made it in the movie Moonstruck.  Bekah made it by taking a glass, a frying pan, a piece of bread, some butter and an egg.  She cut a hole in the bread with the glass and buttered the pan, laid the bread and the hole in the pan (hole next to the slice), and cracked an egg in the middle of the bread.  Cook and flip, and you have a fried egg in the bread!  


 my kids eat a lot of eggs, scrambled, soufflé, hard boiled, poached... the list goes on.  Recently my husband resurrected the African toast and they were thrilled to have a new form of egg. Last night for dinner I got a little creative and instead of using a glass decided what fun it would be to use a cookie cutter!  Maddi chose the snowman last night, so snowman toast it was and they ate every last bite!
