Eggs in a Hole

I’m sure a lot of you have made this before, but if you haven’t, this is a great quick and easy breakfast that my kids love to eat.  They like the novelty of the egg in the toast and being able to eat it with their hands.


All you need is some eggs and bread.   Butter both sides of the bread, then with a circular cutter or glass, cut out the center. We have used different shaped cookie cutters making it a bit more fun. Heat skillet or electric griddle (which is one of our favorite appliances). Put the bread on the heated grill then break open an egg into the hole.  Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes then turn.  Cook another few minutes then serve.  My daughter doesn’t like eggs over easy, so I scramble hers first, but it always seems to ooze under the bread.  We grill the cut out circles/shapes and serve the eggs with fruit and milk.

    My friend introduced me to these years ago~ she calls it "egg in a nest"~ it is a fun way to prepare your eggs and toast all in one.

    I learned these from a teenager, and haven't done them in some time. Wonder if I could convince the kids that the duck eggs are really chicken eggs if I did them all fancy like this? I've got laying ducks, getting about 2 eggs a day. Their eggs are so rich and yummy, but the kids insist that they taste weird. I think they're great. Still, even with chicken eggs, these make an awesome lunch!

    My dc love this. It has been a while since we made them. My ds 11 likes to cook so I think this will be on the menu for breakfast this week.
