Egg-in-a-hole is exactly what it sounds like: an egg in the hole of a piece of bread. It’s so simple that you really don’t need a recipe. Although you may be wondering why you can’t just eat a fried egg and slice of bread separately, something magical happens when you combine them together. I give credit to the butter. Whatever it is, it’s good.
1. Melt butter on pan over medium heat. Using a cup, cut out a circle from the slice of bread.
2. Place bread on pan and gently break egg into hole so that yolk remains intact.
3. Cook until egg is set on bottom. Sprinkle salt and pepper on egg, then flip bread over with spatula. Cook on other side until egg is cooked and bread is golden brown. Yolk should be unbroken and butter should be soaked up by the bread!
