Egg In A Hole

Egg in a Hole reminds me of some of my favourite French sandwiches (Croque Madam anyone?!). But this is a lot easier. You basically just need some good bread, a fresh egg and some butter. I also like a bit of hot sauce on top, but that is optional.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ¾-inch-thick slice country bread, whole wheat or white
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper

PREPARATION

STEP 1
Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of bread. Reserve the removed portion to toast, if desired. Break egg into a teacup.

STEP 2
Heat a heavy cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, or over a medium-hot grill, for about 2 minutes. Add butter. When butter stops foaming, place bread in pan and reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 minutes and flip over. Gently tip egg into hole.

STEP 3
Sprinkle salt and pepper over egg and cook 3 minutes. Carefully flip egg and bread over, and cook for another 30 to 40 seconds, until egg is cooked just over-easy. Transfer to a plate and serve.
