Egg in a hole, also known as ‘egg in the basket’, ‘frog in the hole’ or a ‘hole in one,’ is not only a delicious way to eat an egg with toast, it’s also really fun. You can substitute the bread with a bagel or waffle, and try different toppings like cheddar cheese, green onions or chopped parsley.


Here, I made egg in a hole two ways; I used thick slices of white bread and sesame seed bagels, both topped with a generous amount of feta, red chilis and a sprinkling of dill.


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2

1 Tbsp butter
2 thick slices bread, about 1” or 2 bagels
2 eggs
2 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
½ red chili, finely sliced (optional)
1 Tbsp chopped dill
Salt & pepper, to taste

1. Make a hole in your bread using a 2” round cutter or the rim of a small glass.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place butter in the pan. Once melted, add bread and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Flip the toast over and crack the egg into the middle of the hole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cover pan with a lid. Let cook until egg is set, about 3 minutes.
4. Sprinkle with feta, red chilis and dill.
