Egg in a Hole
Today I'm going to teach you to make my favorite breakfast, Egg in a Hole. It's just an egg, cooked over easy, into a piece of toast, but it's magic.
I've also heard it called Egg in a Basket. Call it Egg in Bread if you're really not creative. Either way, just eat it. Let's go.
First Get This Stuff
- Two pieces of toast (I use a seeded bread and the seeds get all crispy and it's amazing)
- 1/2 tablespoon of butter (or to taste)
- 2 eggs
Now Do This
- Melt the butter in a pan large enough to hold the two slices, over medium-high heat.
- While the butter melts, cut a square in each slice of bread, maybe just smaller than a playing card.
- Put the slices in the pan, along with the squares you cut out (they'll be important later) and let them toast a little. Maybe 3 minutes, then flip. Flip the squares too.
- Now that you've flipped the toast, it's time to drop the egg in the hole. Crack the egg and then do just that. If a little egg overflows into the bread, no biggie.
- Let the egg fry for about 4-5 minutes, until the white is white. The yolk might still be a little under set. Season with salt and pepper. Now flip the toast and let it fry maybe another minute. The egg should be set but the yolk will be runny.
- Done! Throw it on a plate. Let the yolk run and sop it up with your toast. The best part is dipping the squares in the yolk. Ok, gotta go make one now!
