breakfast of chubby champions

i made this up this morning. it's not really creative or original, but i've never seen this EXACT thing before, so i'm calling it *my* recipe.

1 slice bacon, cut in half. 2 slices if you really mean it.
2 slices bread
1 egg
cheddar cheese (1 slice? however much you like. i like cheese a lot.)

-using a small juice or shot glass or even a fancy biscuit cutter, cut a hole in the middle of one of the pieces of bread. i don't care what you do with the bread round. you could toast it up to sop up the delicious egg yolk goo that is in your near future.
-heat up your skillet to medium and fry the cut bacon on one side. when it's nice and crispy and brown, flip it over and swirl the fat around. don't you dare drain any of that fat.
-arrange your bacon so that you can place the holey bread on top of the bacon and still see the bottom of your frying pan. press lightly.
-crack the egg into the hole and sprinkle with a dash of salt.
-let the egg fry for a minute or until the white is... white, on the side touching the pan.
-with a spatula, lift up the bread and swirl the bacon fat around. flip the bread/egg/bacon, then top with cheese and additional piece of bread.
-after another minute, flip one more time to toast the intact bread and melt the cheese a bit more.
