  • How to Make Egg in a Hole

    Step 1. Cut a hole in the bread, approximately 2 inches. A glass or biscuit cutter works great. Save the cutout circle.

    Step 2. Butter both sides of the bread.

    Step 3. Place the bread on a heated skillet. Add a pat of butter in the hole.

    Step 4. Crack an egg into the hole.

    Step 5. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

    Step 6. Flip and cook another 2 minutes (2 minutes for a runnier yolk; cook longer for a firmer yolk).

    Step 7. Butter both sides of the round center and brown in the skillet. Serve alongside the piece of bread.

    Step 8. Enjoy the egg-in-a-hole along with fresh fruit.
