  3. Place bread on a clean, flat surface and using a 2-3 inch diameter biscuit cutter or rim of a drinking glass, very firmly press into bread and twist to cut through bread. Discard round bread piece. Melt butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack egg and gently slip egg into hole in the bread. Cook until egg yolk and white is set, about 3-5 minutes.
