Maybe egg in the hole won’t change your world, but fried egg in a hole made in some bread is one of my favorite things for breakfast lunch or dinner. Best of all it can be done about a million different ways – so never grows old.
You may also know it as Egg in the basket, Betty Grable Eggs and has been adapted to things like “toad in the hole” for the sausage dish make in its likeness. Really, all it involves is a piece of bread with a hole removed and an egg in the center and then cooked with a little butter.
So here is just a slight variation from the traditional.
1 slice of bread
1/2 of a sliced avocado
Salt & Pepper to taste
Bacon cut up into pieces.
That’s it – so yummy and no directions required – you assemble it how you wish and fry it in a pan. I fight the normal and always put the “hole” to off center – so there is more room for the “extras” like bacon, scallions, chives, jalapeños, basil, honey … etc. Cook the egg to your liking – soft, over easy, sunny side up, or hard.
