Egg in a Hole

To be honest, I have never heard of "Egg in a Hole" until a few weeks ago. One day I was scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed and found a picture of 
Necessary Indulgence's first Egg in a Hole.
I was so intrigued! I had to quickly make my own and now my whole family is addicted! What a easy and quick breakfast idea! If you have not tried this fun breakfast, I promise you will not be disappointed :) I serve my egg in a hole with jellied round toast, a sliced tomato, and cucumbers! Serving cucumbers and tomatoes with eggs and toast is something my grandmother always did, and I am so glad I took after her! Yum :)

bread of your choice
salt and pepper (to taste)

First cut a 2 inch hole in the center of the bread. I used a biscuit cutter, I have also seen  a heart cookie cutter used, such a cute idea! Next, heat griddle on medium heat and melt 1/2 TBS butter. Lay bread on the griddle or frying pan and crack a egg in the hole. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Add butter to the griddle or bread as needed to brown and crisp the toast. Flip the egg and round, season with salt and pepper. Cook another 2 minutes for a runny yolk, or slightly longer for a set egg.

I hope you will enjoy this brilliant breakfast soon!


  1. These are so good. My son found a recipe years ago when he was in elementary school. The recipe called them "eggs in a nest".

  2. I love eggs in a hole! I always fry the center on the bread in the butter too! Love, Love, Love it!

  3. Well, I'm embarrassed that I missed commenting on this post last week. Can you believe that I've never made egg in a hole? Will have to try it out fr my son.

  4. I was just contemplating making this. Oh how I wished I had made this. I opted for a grilled cheese instead. I must confess I have never made this before, but I do believe that I will be making this for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder!
