egg in hole

I love breakfast.

True story. I eat an egg every morning. I usually scramble it in a mug {one egg. one mug. pam spray. scramble with little whisk. 19 seconds zap. more scramble. 15 seconds zap.} but I love ordering eggs over easy with toast when I eat out for breakfast, loving soaking up that runny oak with some good bread, but resigning myself to my inability to make a fried egg well.

Enter Egg in A Hole.
one egg
one good piece of toasted bread. like 9 grain.
olive oil cooking spray
biscuit cutter
Heat skillet to medium high. Cut a hole in your toast with the biscuit cutter and ready the leftover circle on plate. Spray skillet with cooking spray. Add holed toast and crack egg into hole. Wait 2 minutes and swiftly flip entire unit. After 2-3 minutes, remove to plate. Sprinkle with coarse salt and cracked pepper and enjoy making perfect bites of cooked egg white, runny oak and nutty bread.


  1. we love making these! at the meeh house we call 'em "birds' nests" yum yum!

  2. we make these all the time! known as "one-eyed jacks" in the reeves fam. we have a chkn recipe we call "birds nests" or i think i'd steel that one :)

  3. Erin, as you whisk your egg in your mug, have you ever added a tiny bit of milk? Just curious.

  4. @Gma - no, I dont. I usually only have Almond Milk in the house and I like it just fine without milk.
