Egg in a Hole

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). 

Egg in a Hole Ingredients | Sprig and Flours

 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.

Whole Wheat Bread | Sprig and Flours

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!
