When preparing for a trip to the woods with my family, I planned to make a handful of quick and yummy meals for us to enjoy. I wanted to eat well without dedicating my days to the kitchen (or campfire). AHP Egg in the Hole is a wonderfully easy recipe that could not be more appropriate for a cabin dwelling. It’s also delicious and fun for children of all ages. Some other names you might know the dish by: Eggs in the Basket, Toad in the Hole, Gashouse Eggs, A Hole in One, Spit in the Ocean, and Popeye Eggs.
AHP Egg in the Hole
a few minutes
- plain round cutter/or drinking glass
- bread: 4 slices
- butter: 4 T
- eggs: 4
- kosher salt: to taste
- freshly ground black pepper: to taste
- Using a drinking glass or a metal round cutter, cut the center out of the each slice of bread.
- Heat the skillet over medium/low heat. Then melt 1 T of butter per slice of bread.
- Once the butter has melted, place a slice or two of bread in the skillet.
- Adding 1 egg in each hole in the bread. Then place the bread center rounds in the pan to toast.
- Season the eggs with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
- Cook the Egg in the Hole for 45 seconds on each side.
P.S. It’s a bit messy but you can also make a burger that’s truly amazing with 2 slices of Egg in the Hole. Cook the egg for a bit longer or eat with a fork!
