"Egg in the Hole" Recipes

May 18, 2004

Egg cooked in middle of bread slice.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.




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.

First, break some eggs into a flat bowl or small casserole dish, add a little milk and add a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg. Beat the egg mixture to blend all.

In the past, my husband didn't like eggs for breakfast without some bacon to go with it. Now that we have stopped eating bacon, he has found that he loves egg on toast with melted cheese on top.


When I first started making it, I burned the toast but he ate it anyway. I have worked on my timing to get this to turn out just right for him.

Always look to make sure you opened the right side of the pepper before putting it on your egg. This lesson was learned the hard way.
