Egg in the Hole

Just wanted to post this in case you woke up tomorrow morning wanting brunch and realizing you have an empty fridge. With just 3 ingredients and a pan you can make something so darn satisfying that you might not even need lunch. So I hope you're reading this my little brother Tristan, because even you can make this!!

Egg in the Hole has quickly become our go-to breakfast on weekends when we want something hearty, easy and delicious. And I don't even like eggs- although this dish is slowly making me come around.

Start off by melting a couple tablespoons of butter in a skillet

Next add in your toast with a hole already cut out- Some use a biscuit cutter, i use a knife :P

After a couple minutes crack an egg right into the hole (this is oddly satisfying)

Wait for the egg to be almost opaque before flipping

Peeeeeerfect. But you know what just throws this over the edge?

Hello cheddar! Everything is better with cheese. Can I get an "Amen"!

There is no better breakfast/brunch/hungover-cure than an Egg in the Hole. So try it today- I promise you won't regret it.

Egg in the Hole
  • 2 tblsp butter
  • 1 piece of bread
  • 1 egg
  • cheese (optional)
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cut a hole out of the middle of your bread and add both pieces to your skillet. Next crack the egg into the hole and let sit. When the egg is almost opaque flip the toast over. Cook a few more minutes and add cheese, tomatoes, salsa, or whatever else strikes your fancy!
