Egg In A Hole

Egg in a hole or Egg in a hole recipe

Managing 4 year old twins is such a difficult job but sort of blessing as even as a father I cannot escape their responsibility. Everything has to be shared and mother does not get to do everything alone. So, I picked up the part which I love so much and that is cooking.

So, as I was making eggs Sunny Side up for my kids, I thought why not make it different. Then I got the idea from the shape cutters my kids have in their clay shape maker collection. Eggs are actually power house of protein and very important for kids. Though we as adults avoid yolk due to health reasons, I advocate giving yolks to kids alongwith whites as it is full of energy which kids need. Also, if they have cold, hard boiled eggs with yolk really does wonder.

Sunny Side Up
Bread Pitt - Eggs inside the bread with suuny side up.

Though I did not use it, I just used a small bowl to make the cut that you can see in which out little shiny sun is chilling out!!!

It a is a very simple recipe but still let me put it step by step.

  1. 2 Eggs.
  2. 4 bread slices
  3. Salt and Pepper as per taste.
  4. 1-2 table spoons oil.

  1. First of all toast the bread slices on a hot tawa so that they are crisp and brown.
  2. Take them off the tawa.
  3. Now place 2 slices on top of each other and use a cutter or may be a steel tumbler or katori and cut out the bread.
  4. Repeat it on other two slices as well.
  5. Now put the coupled slices on tawa. Turn on the heat on medium.
  6. Break one egg straight into the whole and let it cook.
  7. Once cooked, sprinkle salt and pepper and serve to your kids. Well, even adults can eat, nos topping them.
  8. Repeat for other 2 slices as well.
I made a may try with something more. More shapes, more fun. In market you even get different cutters of diff shapes and sizes.

Its amazing hit with the kids!!!

I have shared another wonderful breakfast with eggs recipe called Shakshuka. See it here.
