There are very few meals that I feel confident cooking without help. Which is crazy. I’m a married mother of two in her late (!!!) thirties. I should be able to whip up a few good meals, you know? But I just feel so bumble-y and awkward in the kitchen. And on top of that, I don’t really *love* cooking, so it’s just…not really a match made in heaven, I suppose.
All that said, there are a handful of things I have mastered and cook regularly (aside from instant oatmeal and toast). One of those things is Egg-in-a-Hole (which goes by many names, but which I call Egg-in-a-Hole because I always imagine myself on a battlefield – the kitchen – yelling, “EGG IN THE HOLE!” as I crack my egg into the hole).
What you need to make Egg-in-a-Hole:
- 1 egg
- 1 piece of bread
- butter (you can use oil or cooking spray instead)
- cookie cutter
I used Goldrich Eggs. They are known for their rich, golden yolks (you can see in the picture at the top of this post how pretty they are!). They are available in select markets (I got mine at Walmart).
- Butter your piece of bread if desired. Or, spray with some cooking spray (I spray a little olive oil on mine).
- Turn your burner on low to medium heat.
- Use your cookie cutter to cut out a hole. I use a heart cookie cutter because it’s cute.
- Place your bread in the pan and crack your egg into the hole in the bread.
- Let it cook for about three-four minutes (depending on the heat of your stove and how well done you want your egg).
- Place the piece of bread you cut out (in my case, the cute little heart shape!) in the pan next to your Egg-in-a-Hole.
- Flip and let the other side cook for a couple minutes. Flip over your bread cut-out, too!
- When done, eat it! 🙂
This is definitely an easy recipe to make, and that’s probably why I love it so much! It’s perfect for the busy holiday season, breakfasts before school, and even a midday snack. Or dinner. So basically, it’s excellent at any time.
