Egg in a Hole!

Egg in a Hole!

This is such a fun way to serve eggs and toast! And I love the fact that the eggs and toast are made at the same time in the same frying pan! So much easier that way! My family got a kick out of this egg dish! I've made it often. I like to make this when we're having breakfast for dinner!

I found this recipe here on GroupRecipes.com.


Egg in a Hole!
Egg in a Hole

INGREDEINTS:
1 large egg
1 Tbls. butter
 slice of bread - I used wheat bread

DIRECTIONS:
 To cut the circle into the bread, place bread on a flat surface and place an empty drinking glass upside down on top of the bread.
Slowly and firmly press down on the glass in a circular movement,

 until it cuts through the slice.
Use a knife to cut through where the glass may have missed.
Melt 1 Tbls. of butter in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Dip both sides of the bread pieces into the melted butter.
Place the slice of bread in the center of the pan with the center cut circle next to it.
Crack the egg into the open circle of the slice of bread.
Fry until egg is firm enough to flip over but make sure not to burn the bread.
Also flip the center circle to toast.

Fry until desired doneness is achived.
Cover pan with a lid if more cooking is desired.

Serve warm.

    1. That's a great idea! I have an empty can that I use for cutting biscuits! I think I'll use that instead of the glass next time! Thanks for your idea! =D
