I started combining two of my favorite breakfasts a few years ago because it was filling as well as fun. I bring this sandwich up now and again while we are shopping and Zo always says, "MMM that sounds good." Instead of asking Zo what she wanted for breakfast this morning I just made us two of these babies!

2 slices of multi grain sourdough bread
1 egg
1/3 cup aged sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
crack pepper (to taste)
Kosher salt (to taste)
essence (to taste)
3-4 pads of butter

Using a small diameter container (I have used kiddie cups, tea cups small classes, shot glasses, cookie cutters) press firmly into center of bread slice. Lift up, flip bread, line up container with impression and press once more. Remove center of bread.

Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Spread around 1 pad of butter and lay slice of bread into skillet and let cook for 1 minutes before cracking egg into center hole of the bread, place the center circle in the pan next to egg in a basket with a pad of butter on top, season all to your taste.

After 3-4 minutes when you can tell the bottom of the egg has cooked. Use a wide spatula to flip egg in a basket and center circle quickly (if it appears you need to add butter do so.) Season this side to your taste, add cheese, cover with the other slice of bread, press down firmly with spatula and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Add a pad of better, then flip the entire sandwich and once again press down firmly with spatula. Cook 3-4 additional minutes and then serve hot.
