Easy Bulls Eyes Recipe - Quick Breakfast Ideas!

Make Bull's Eyes in About 3 Minutes!
As a mom who is always short of time in the mornings, I like to find quick and satisfying breakfasts that I can serve to the kids in a pinch.  In the wintertime, if I am able to serve the kids a hot breakfast a few times per week, I feel that I'm really starting their day off right.  As timescales go, toast is fast, hot cereal somewhere in the middle, and pancakes even longer.  However, Bulls Eyes (toast with eggs cooked into the middle) is faster than hot cereal, but a bit longer than toast.  

I have fond memories of my dad making my brother and I Bulls Eyes for breakfast; we loved it!  Here's my 3 minute recipe for Bulls Eyes, below!  
Cut a Hole Just Larger Than 1" x 1" in the Bread for Bulls Eyes!
Jenna's Easy Bull's Eyes Recipe!
Takes about 3 minutes.  Yields 2 portions.

Ingredients
2 pieces of bread (I used Dempster's Zero bread)
2 eggs
1 pat of butter
Optional: salt, pepper or spices
Optional: seasonal fruit

1.Add butter to frying pan on medium heat until melted and pan evenly coated.
2.In the center of bread slices, take a butter knife and cut out a square hole just a bit larger than 1" x 1".  Keep cut out pieces.
3.Add both slices of bread side by side--including cut out square pieces--into frying pan.  Cut out pieces should not be placed back inside the bread.

4.Crack one egg at a time, carefully pouring the egg's contents into the cut out square in the bread.  Add one egg per slice of bread.
5.Cook eggs for about 90 seconds, or until egg whites begin turning white, then flip and cook other side.  Cook for an additional 30-60 seconds, depending if you would like the egg yolk runny (30 seconds) or firm (60 seconds).
6.Optional: salt, pepper and spices to taste.  (I used basil in the photo, above.)  For added nutrition, serve seasonal fruit.

Are you interested in cutting down on the amount of sugar and fat in your diet from bread?  Then do give Dempster's Zero bread a try, which is the same bread I featured in this recipe.  It has no added sugar, no added fat and is a 100% whole wheat bread.  Use Dempster's Zero bread in sandwiches or as part of your favourite recipes--it only contains 0g of sugars, and 1g of fat!

Have you seen Dempster's Zero romantic YouTube video?  It's actually pretty hysterical!  See the VIDEO here, and you can even "star" on the cover of your own romance novel and share it with your circle!
Look for Dempster's Zero Bread in the Bakery Department!

Have you recently had Bull's Eyes for breakfast?  How do you usually take your bread or toast (ie: butter, honey, peanut butter, jam, jelly, etc)?

  18. I love this idea. I think my boys would eat it. Does the egg fall out?

    1. Heather, the egg does not fall out; it stays firmly anchored to the bread.

  21. Oh man, I haven't made Bulls Eyes in *ages*... though we just called it fried egg sandwiches, lol. I didn't realise there was a fun name for them. Am now thinking its truly time to try making them again for a weekend breakfast! :) Thanks for the "blast from the past", lol.

  30. cute idea. I could have so much fun playing with different cookie cutters/shapes for the eggs.

  31. My mom use to make this for us once a month when we were young. She would cut the centre of the bread into a different shape each month. The kids love it and its a great way to get the kids to eat eggs!
