[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text]YIELD: 1 serving

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

Reserve the removed portion to toast, if desired. Break egg into a teacup.

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.

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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584215403674{margin-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”custom” border_width=”3″ accent_color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
