Easy-Peasy Recipe: Egg-in-a-hole

15 Apr

Egg-in-a-hole is a pretty old recipe and also goes by many names such as egg-in-a-basket, egg holes, egg basket, pop eyes, etc.  You may have heard of it by a very different name than I am calling it here.  Nonetheless, it is a fabulous recipe that you can make for any meal, coupled with numerous other things, depending on your eating tendencies.  I used to make it with bacon, but now might mix up a fruit salad or fruit smoothie.


Loaf of sliced bread (I prefer wheat, but you can use white if you want)



Salt and pepper

  1. Tear holes in the middle of each slice of bread like so:
  2. Heat your skillet and put a spoonful of butter in it to coat the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Place the bread in the skillet and cook for 10-15 seconds.
  4. Crack an egg in the hole in the bread.  Top with salt and pepper.
  5. Allow the egg to fry and flip the egg and bread when the egg is cooked.

Voila! You have delicious, easy and fairly inexpensive eggs-in-holes. See, even dudes enjoy them!

    I make this like….once a week. Favorite breakfast 🙂

    I love it with some cheese and avocado and salsa on top, too.

    I love these! Although we call them “Eggs in a Nest.” I’m going to have to make some this weekend….
