Egg-in-a-hole, also known as ‘egg-in-the-basket’ 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 — with white bread and bagels — both topped with lots of feta, red chilis and a sprinkling of dill.

directions

Step 1

Make a hole in your bread using a 2” round cutter or the rim of a small glass.

Step 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.

Step 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. Sprinkle with feta, red chilis and dill.
