This classic isn’t just for kids, and it’s certainly not just for breakfast. For those of you not familiar, eggs in a hole are exactly what the name implies: a fried egg, cooked in a hole in a piece of toast. I make this dish constantly, but am forever ruining the yolk when I flip it. So, I tried a new method, which turned out beautifully and is much more conducive to melting cheese! There’s no looking back now.
Use whatever bread or cheese you like; my ingredients are simply suggestions. Serve over wilted greens or sliced tomato for a complete meal.
2 slices of multi-grain bread
2 large eggs
2 slices of white cheddar cheese
A know of butter
Salt and pepper
1. Using a shot glass, cut a hole in the center of each piece of bread.
2. Over a medium flame, drizzle canola oil in a large pan. Add butter.
3. When butter is melted, add bread and crisp lightly on one side. Flip when golden.
4. Carefully crack an egg into each hole, then layer on cheese.
5. Cover pan with a lid. Let cook for a few moments, (checking periodically) until egg is set and egg whites are no longer translucent.
7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
