Eggs in a Hole

Monday, August 15, 2016
This Egg in the hole has become the favorite in our homes.


These eggs are cooked in the middle of cutout bread which has a grilled taste and really tasty!


My first time I really thought this tasted like a grilled cheese but there's an egg in the middle!


These are the perfect solution to any all in one breakfast and the whole family loves them.







This is a famous egg breakfast usually called eggs in a basket,  toad in a hole, egg in a hole, birds in a nest. It is a slice of bread with the middle cut out and a poached egg in the center








Some Fun Names Eggs in a Hole are called by Others



When I added this one to Instagram, I had so many comments on how they remembered this as a kid and loved eggs in a hole, that's what we called them.


However, as my children were growing up, eggs in a hole were called something different by many of their friends and family members.


Most Restaurants had this breakfast on their menu and were called eggs in a hole.


I decided to take a poll on what this breakfast was called by others.


Here are just a few that were the most popular:


Some called them "Eggs in a basket", another called this "Birdie in a nest" and last I saw was a "One-eyed Texan".


The winner and number 1, was "Toad in a Hole"!


That was just to name the top ones!

Egg In A Hole

prep time: 10 minscook time: 6 minstotal time: 16 mins
There are so many names for this breakfast dish! Egg in a hole is what we called it. You may have heard of Birds in Nest or Toad in a hole

ingredients:

Bread any kind of soft to cut bread

Eggs as many as you need to feed your family

Butter for pan grilling

Biscuit Cutter small or use a shot glass

Salt, pepper to taste

Sides, bacon, ham, sausages, breakfast potatoes cooked to package instructions.

Optional: Slices of Sharp Cheddar

instructions:

Using your favorite soft bread and a biscuit cutter, make a hole in the center. Tip: ( It's actually easier to cut the middles out while the bread is still a little frozen)

Heat the pan over medium heat with a few tablespoons of butter or other preferred oil sprays.

Place the cut bread in the pan, crack the egg, add to the center of the cutout part of the bread.

Cook until you see the bottom of the bread starts to toast then flip.

Salt and pepper. Cook until the egg is set to the way you like them.

Place the cheese over the top if using.

I also place the cut circles and toast them in the pan. 

A great side dish with this would be bacon, ham, sausage and breakfast potatoes
