Easy Peasy Egg in the Hole

November 12, 2017Johnfitt

Good breakfasts are essential for good health. Kids and adults alike need the proper nutrients for our brains and bodies to function properly. This is one of the main reasons we love this quick, easy and tasty meal!

An Egg in the Hole is an incredibly fast meal to whip up. Perfect for busy school mornings! It is also made with whole wheat bread which Dr. Sears calls “brain food.” Organic, pasture raised eggs are a great source of vitamin D and protein. Put this with a banana, an Easy Peasy Green Smoothie or some Kamut and Fruit Salad and you have the perfect line up for a healthy and happy day!

Egg in the Hole
whole wheat bread
seasonings to taste (salt, pepper, cayenne, etc.)

Using a small Mason jar of glass cup, cut a circle in a slice of bread. Melt some butter in a fry pan. The pan needs to be fairly hot so the egg will sear instead of run out the bottom. Place the hole and the bread in the butter and press down lightly to sort of seal the bread to the pan to help the egg stay in the hole. Crack an egg in a bowl, whisk lightly and add desired seasonings. Pour into the hole in the bread and flip when cooked on that side. Done when fully cooked on both sides. Garnish with maple syrup or ketchup.
