Budget Breakfast - Egg In A Hole

Eggs are incredibly budget friendly and cook up in a flash. When my Mom made an egg in a hole for me as a child it felt like a special occasion. There was something about the crunch of the toasted bread, the warm runny yolk that just made me smile {it still does}. Little did I know at the time how incredibly easy they are to prepare. To make this recipe you can use any bread you like, I used a french bread here. You can use a small glass or a round cookie cutter to make the hole with.

Egg in a Hole
What you’ll need: {makes 1 portion}
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 slice of bread of your choice – hole cut from center {reserve cut out}
1 egg

What to do:
1. Into a saute pan melt butter. Add bread. Carefully crack your egg into the hole. Season egg with salt and pepper. Allow egg to cook for approximately 1 minute and then flip carefully using a spatula.

2. Season egg with salt and pepper. Allow egg to cook until the whites are cooked through and the bread is toasted. Approximately 2 minutes for a runny yolk, longer if you prefer a firmer yolk.

3. Place the reserved bread disc  into the pan and toast on both sides. Use toasted disc for dipping into yolk.
