Egg-in-the-Hole or Egg-in-a-Nest or Egg-in-a-Basket or Whatever You Call It, It’s Good!

Armed with a simple cookie cutter, this recipe transforms breakfast for even the most reluctant eater.  It’s essentially eggs and toast with a twist, but kids love the fun of it!

  • 1 slice bread (We use whole grain, but you could you whichever is your favorite)
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 pats butter
  • Optional:  A sprinkle of omelet-friendly ingredients, such as a grated cheese or diced veggies

Use a cookie cutter to cut a shape from the bread.  Our hen cookie cutter is the family favorite!

In a pan set to medium-low, melt a pat of butter, fry the cutout until golden brown on both sides, and set aside.  Melt the second pat of butter in the pan and add the frame.  You have some options here:  Either crack the egg directly into the hole or scramble first.  If you go with the latter option, you can add omelet-friendly ingredients, such as a sprinkle of cheddar cheese or a tiny bit of cut veggies.  Season with salt and pepper.

Fry until golden brown on both sides or until egg reaches desired doneness.  You can either break the yolk or leave it whole and runny for dipping with the cutout.  Serve warm.
