Truthfully, this is not cooking. This is not complicated, this is not earth-shattering, and this is not in your favorite cookbook.
This is pure, simple, delicious…food.
For that reason, this egg in a hole is blog-worthy. If it’s something I would recommend you make (tomorrow, for breakfast,) then it’s blog-worthy. If it’s something my husband has requested the last three Sunday mornings in a row with his coffee in bed, then it’s blog-worthy. If it’s otherwise described as crispy, buttered toast engulfing a perfectly-cooked fried egg, then it’s blog-worthy.
Here you are. Egg in a hole. Totally worthy.
Egg in a Hole
2 slices whole wheat bread
2 large eggs
2 TBS butter
1. Place bread on a flat surface. Using the bottom of a 1/4 measuring cup (or anything else with approx. 3-inch diameter,) make a hole in each slice of bread.
2. Heat 1 TBS butter over med-high heat. Place bread in pan. Crack 1 egg into hole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry 2 minutes. Flip, and fry 1 minute on other side. Sprinkle again with salt and pepper.
3. Remove to plate and repeat with other 1 TBS butter, bread slice and egg.
Note – these eggs are runny inside. If its not your thing…this recipe is not your thing. Its my thing!
