  1. Heat oven to 400°F (205°C).

  2. Using a 3-1/2 inch egg -shaped (or round) cookie cutter, cut out a hole in the center of 4 bread slices. Cut each cutout lengthwise in half to make the "bunny's ears."

  3. Spread butter on remaining 4 bread slices and place, butter-side down, on an ungreased baking sheet. Cover each with 1 cheese slice; top with 1 of the bread slices with the hole. Carefully break 1 egg into the center of each hole. Decorate each egg with desired decorations for the "eyes", "nose" and "whiskers."

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and egg is set but slightly runny, or as desired, adding the ears to the oven for the last 5 minutes of the baking time.

  5. Arrange 2 "ears" at the top of each "bunny's head" just before serving.
