Egg In The Hole

Egg In The Hole

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 teaspoon butter
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Tear a 1 and 1/2-inch hole out of the center of each piece of bread. Tilt the skillet so the melted butter covers the surface of the pan. Place each slice of bread next to each other in the skillet. Crack eggs, one at a time, into the hole in the center of the bread.

After about 3 minutes, flip the bread and cook on the other side until the egg has set. Slide onto a plate and serve.


My mom used to make this for me when I was little. Great with ketchup!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank ks3398 for this recipe.

I eat this nearly every day, with a few drops of Tabasco sauce. Hate it when the yolk hardens.

This has been one of my go-to quick breakfasts since I learned to make it in home-ec for boys in 7th grade. It was called "Eggs in a Box" Interesting to find such a lifetime favorite here.

My favorite breakfast growing up. My mom buttered the bread before cooking. We called them bird nest eggs.

My kids sometimes request this for days straight, but just change the sides and it's good! Great breakfast and sometimes, even a better dinner!

I used to make this for my son and daughter when they were little. My son would always request it when he was older. Comfort food at its best!

I grew up eating these. My dad used to call them Roy Rogers Eggs. I guess he made them on the show once. They are still nostalgic for me. For extra yumminess, butter the bread before frying them.

One of my favorite breakfasts growing up and as an adult. Mine never turn out as pretty as your picture. But, they always tastes great. Plus, it's crazy easy to make.

Delicious recipe! When done, I flip it back to the egg side up and place a piece of American cheese on the top. It's so good and fast.

My father used to make this for me when I was a kid and called them "a**holes on toast". We'd laugh. I had a weird childhood.

My mom called this "Egyptian-eyed" sandwiches. I think it was from an Abbot & Costello movie, where they made them; and called them that. I still make them 50 years later!
