Tip: Leave some butter on the counter ahead of time, or use the microwave to soften butter for a few seconds for Step 3. In Step 4, keep an eye on the bread and cheese while it's under the broiler to prevent burning. If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, in Step 4, transfer everything to a baking dish before cracking eggs. For 4 servings, use a separate skillet to cook the extra 4 eggs in Step 4.
