You may have also heard this breakfast recipe referred to as an egg in the basket or egg with a hat. This is a super easy and fun breakfast treat. The bread gets nice and toasty, while the egg yolk stays runny. Yummy!

How to Make Egg-in-a-Hole

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut a hole in the bread, approximately 2 inches. A glass or biscuit cutter works great. Save the cutout circle.
  2. Butter both sides of the bread.
  3. Place the bread on a heated skillet. Add a pat of butter in the hole.
  4. Crack an egg into the hole.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip and cook another 2 minutes (2 minutes for a runnier yolk; cook longer for a firmer yolk).
  7. Butter both sides of the round center and brown in the skillet. Serve alongside the piece of bread.
  8. Enjoy the egg-in-a-hole along with fresh fruit.
