You know you want to make one...
The Ingredients
The Ingredients
2 slices of sandwich bread, two tablespoons of butter, 2 eggs, and 2 to 3 slices of cheese. I like using a mix of American (for gooeyness) and cheddar (for flavor). You'll also want to have some salt on hand.
Cut The Holes
Cut The Holes
You can use a fancy ring mold for this, an empty can with both ends cut off (tomato paste cans work great), or the lid to a mason jar, like I'm using here. Cut a hole out of the center of each slice of bread.
Add The Eggs
Add The Eggs
Add another half teaspoon of butter to the center of each eye, let it melt, then break an egg into it. Season them with salt. Cook until the eggs can easily be lifted from underneath with a thin spatula.
Flip and Cheese
Flip and Cheese
Flip each slice of bread over (carefully!), and place a slice of cheese over each one. Meanwhile, place a folded slice of cheese in between the circular cutouts.

Once the bottoms of both slices of bread are lightly browned, carefully close the sandwiches and cook for another minute or two until they are deeply browned and the cheese is fully melted.
