One of my favorite purchases ever would have to be my bread maker. There is nothing on this planet that compares with waking to the smell of freshly baked bread. Especially bread you’ve cooked yourself for tasty egg-in-the-hole toast.
And when there is a ton of flour already in your food cache, what better way than to utilize excess flour for making fresh and delicious bread.
This recipe is a simple variation on the classic ‘frog-in-a-hole’, another one of my favorite breakfasts when growing up. If you find that there’s a need to rotate some of your flour supplies out, why not make some wonderful bread, crack a few eggs and try this timeless classic.
Do you have a way to continue getting eggs if a disaster ever strikes? Maybe a few chickens live in your backyard. These provide you and your family with a fresh and steady supply. There’s also powdered egg varieties available for long term storage. But for me, nothing beats the real thing.
There’s more to eggs than just a simple treat though. The little parcels are filled with an abundance of goodness. Eggs are thought to contain many beneficial nutrients that help avoid disease and stroke. They also promote heart health.
They are a great source of Vitamin D which helps strengthen bones and avoid diseases such as osteoporosis.
The good thing with eggs is that when you eat them, they fill you up, keeping you satisfied for a long time. This reduces your urge to eat for longer and helps with managing your weight. And if you’re looking at losing weight, eating eggs is one way to help you achieve this.
A good wholesome breakfast is important. This delicious recipe is one suggestion for how best to use some of those ingredients you have stored in your cache. Try tasty egg-in-the-hole toast today.
Egg-in-the-Hole ToastCourse: Breakfast
4 slices of bread
3 medium-sized eggs
4 tbsp (or 60 g) butter
salt and pepper
- On a flat board, cut a 3-inch hole in each of the bread slices using a cookie cutter or just a glass top. Toast the bread for 1 minute.
- Meanwhile, prepare the eggs. Using a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with a small amount of salt and pepper.
- Set the stove to medium heat and place a skillet (or frying pan).
- Toss in 1 tbsp of butter and cook until it melts.
- Then, add the toast. Flip it on the other side, making sure that both sides are well-coated with butter.
- When the bread begins to toast, pour in about 1/4 of the beaten eggs into the hole of the bread. When the egg is starting to cook and mix in with the bread, flip it to the other side.
- Sprinkle slightly with salt and pepper to taste.
- Repeat steps 4 to 7 for each bread slice.
- Serve warm. Enjoy!
