H and I love eggs! Fried to be exact. I have to share a secret though; I am NOT good at frying eggs. I’ve tried room temperature eggs, new non-stick pans, lots of oil and butter, but I guess when I’m frying 3-4 in a pan, there isn’t much wiggle room. In my defense, H says I can’t be good at everything!
Enter “Egg-in-a-Hole!” I’m sure many of you have made this very simple recipe, but I hadn’t. When I told a friend about my broken yolks, she suggested making them this way.
What I love is that they’re fast and easy. I like my hot food hot, and my cold food cold. When I cook, I try to have everything ready all at once. I even butter slices of bread before putting them in the toaster, so they come out hot and I don’t have to wait.
I LOVE this new way of frying an egg!
- Crack each egg into separate bowls
- Butter both sides of your bread
- Use a biscuit cutter and make a hole
- Add a small amount of butter to a non-stick frying pan. I like to use a silicone pastry brush and melted butter. That way, I can control the amount
- Heat your pan to moderate heat, and place the buttered bread down (my pan can fit 2 slices of bread)
- Gently pour one egg into the center of the bread
- Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper
- I kept peeking at the underside so it wouldn’t get too brown
- Use a sharp-edged non-stick spatula and flip the bread over
- When the bottom is nicely browned, they’re ready!
DELICIOUS – and, no broken yolks!!! I think kids would love their eggs this way too. H was very happy since he’s a dipper!
