    OK to clarify directions, simply cut out any shape you would like from the center of the bread, melt butter in pan, place bread on pan, add egg to center of bread, once that side is cooked to how you like it, flip and cook other side. - 7/29/13

    Sounded like it would be pretty good, but the directions are too confusing - 6/20/11

    I love this recipe, my mom made it for us growing up when we needed some "extra love" when we did not feel well. I still make it for my kids today! Thanks for sharing! - 1/1/10
