  7. In a small frying pan over medium heat, melt a tablespoon of the butter. Add the sandwich to the pan, then crack an egg in the center. Cover and cook for two minutes. Use a spatula to remove the sandwich from the pan, add the other tablespoon of butter, then flip the sandwich into the melted butter. Cook on the other side briefly, about 30 seconds for a runny yolk. Transfer to plate and serve immediately.
