EGG IN A HOLE

A different twist on a breakfast staple.
I got 5 dozen eggs on sale this week for 99 cents and was pondering with a co-worker on what to make that would be different that just omelets, fried eggs and hard boiled eggs and she said when she was young, her mother made her and her brother "eggs in a hole" - I had never heard of this so knew I wanted to try it as it sounded like something different and fun.
Items needed: (This makes 2)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • Spreadable or softened margarine or butter
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Frying pan
  • Knife
  • Spatula
  • Round cookie cutter, glass or round plastic frozen juice container
  • Salt and/or pepper, to taste

Spread the butter or margarine on both sides of the bread.

Use the cookie cutter, glass or juice container (I used the latter) to cut a circle out of the center of each piece of bread. This is what it will look like once you have cut out the circles. Spray the frying pan with non-stick cooking spray. Put the pan on the stove and turn up to medium low heat-medium heat put the bread in first, then crack an egg into the center of each hole.

Cook for a few minutes, when it starts to look like this in center, flip each of the pieces over to toast on the other side and cook on that side for a few minutes. If you want your bread toaster, continue to cook and flip until it is is toasted to how you like it.

When done, use the spatula to put the pieces on a plate and sprinkle with salt and/or pepper to taste and serve.
