Here is my sure-fire-never-fail method of getting Nathan and Nolan out of bed. Twinkle Little Star Bread. Perhaps you have enjoyed this tasty breakfast treat under a different name. I don't know what other people call it but when the boys were little (I mean REALLY little) I began making them this for breakfast and used a star cookie cutter for the hole. Nolan began asking for "Twinkle Little Star Bread" and the name stuck. We used to make up new and exciting words for the song Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star but I won't horrify you with a retelling. Since one of my new ways to save money and use existing resources has been to eat most of the food in the house before going grocery shopping, we are getting low on supplies. We did however have bread, butter and eggs. For those of you who have never tasted this artery-clogging treat, here's the recipe (with pictures of course):
Cut out a shape from the middle of a piece of bread.Put a pat of butter into a frying pan and heat until melted and bubbling.
Add bread and center cut out to pan and crack one egg into the bread hole.
Wait until you can see the underside of the egg getting white. DO NOT TRY TO TURN TOO SOON or the yolk may break. This takes practice. Flip bread pieces very carefully.Heat only a minute more so the yolk is still runny. Use the star to dip into the yolk and enjoy the tasty breakfast eye opener. Serve with comics for best results.
