Breakfast at Connie’s usually involves butter, eggs, and toast in the form of egg in a hole. I love having egg in a hole in the morning, and in the afternoon. I love it in the evening, underneath the moooooooon (that was for all my Sharon, Lois & Bram’s Elephant Show fans).
You need three ingredients, two minutes of your time, and something to cut out the hole in the bread. Before I invested in a biscuit cutter (last week), I used a glass to cut out the hole. The glass works like a charm, but I was at Sur La Table last week and can never leave that store empty-handed.
I grew up eating white bread and usually faux-gagged at whole wheat bread. When I moved into an apartment my second year of college, all of my apartment-mates were really into whole wheat bread and I thought they were absolutely crazy! That is…until I actually tried it. To be honest, I didn’t love it at first, but I kept eating it because I knew it was healthier. Then something happened. Soon I began craving whole wheat bread! Now here I am today, a whole wheat bread consumer and advocate!
Egg in a hole with some fresh fruit is a great way to start off a summer morning, or every morning for that matter.
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 slice of bread
- 1 egg
- With a biscuit cutter or glass, cut out a hole in the middle of the bread then set aside.
- In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
- Put the bread in the skillet then crack the egg into the hole.
- Sprinkle the top with salt and pepper and cook for one minute.
- Flip over to cook the other side for another minute then serve.
