In honor of the start of my Spring Break, and because it’s one of my favorite breakfasts ever, I bring to you…the Egg-In-A-Hole.

I’ve heard it called Eggs-In-A-Basket, too, but I just don’t see a basket when I look at a circular hole in the bread.  I’m an interpreter.  Conceptual accuracy is very important to me. 😉

So, grab a piece of bread.

And a circular biscuit or cookie cutter.

Cut a hole in the center of the bread slice.

Heat a non-stick skillet and just before you add the bread, give the pan a quick spritz with cooking spray.  You can totally use butter, but I tend to get a little overzealous and I’m trying to watch my calories. 😉

Place your bread in the pan and crack an egg in the hole (see?!  Egg-In-A-Hole…perfectly accurate.).

Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the egg.

And flip it.  I always add the bread circle to the pan when I flip it, because that seems to be the magic time when it toasts perfectly.

That’s it!  Then, you have perfectly toasted bread with a perfectly cooked egg in the middle and this one is easy to alter according to different tastes.

I prefer my egg to be cooked in the shape of a moose…

with a fabulously runny yolk,

which happens to be the best dipping sauce

for moose heads.
