Egg in Hole in Bread

Also known as "Egg in the Window". This is easy and delicious. I used it make this all the time at college. Kids love it too. It is easy to make and tough to mess up.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • Butter

Directions:

Using a small cookie cutter, cut a hole in each piece of bread. Then lightly butter both sides of the bread. Then place the bread in a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Once the bread has browned a little turn it over, then fill each hole with an egg. Once the egg has cooked halfway through, flip the bread. You can have your eggs runny or cook them all the way through. Also, apply a little butter to the holes that you cut out of the bread and cook those too. Tabasco or pepper to taste!

Note: Depending on the size of your frying pan you may have to cook two at a time.

Hi,

Sounds like your pan isn't hot enough. Heat the pan to medium-medium high. I don't precook the bread like in the instructions. I just put a pat of butter in the pan, put the bread with the hole cut out of the center in the pan, crack the egg into the hole in the bread and cook until the top of the yoke looks a little fogged over. Then turn and cook until done. Also I cook the little cut outs while cooking the eggs.

My mother called these eggs in a nest. Try lightly buttering the browned bread again after cooking. Mmm.
