Egg in a Hole

Egg in a Hole

I have a new way for you to enjoy the dynamic duo of eggs and bread! This dish will feel refreshing and welcomed, like having sunshine after a few rainy days. Start your morning with a couple of these, and you are sure to have a delicious day.

Prep Time - 5 Minutes

Cook Time - 18 Minutes

Serves 2

  • 4 slices of large Dutch Crunch bread (¼ inch thick)

  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, softened

  • 4 medium eggs

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black or red pepper

  • 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds for garnish (optional)


Omnipan – Large

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F or 191 °C.

  2. With a sharp, pointed knife or cookie cutter, remove each bread slice’s middle portion. The hole should be large enough to hold the egg. You can also toast the cutouts and serve them with this dish.

  3. Spread 1 teaspoon butter on the base of the large Omnipan.

  4. Spread 1 tablespoon butter on both sides of the bread slices. Place the bread slices inside the Omnipan.

  5. Crack an egg and put it in the hole on the bread. Repeat this process for the remaining eggs.

  6. Sprinkle the salt and pepper on the eggs.

  7. Place the Omnipan without the lid in the preheated oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Egg whites should be opaque.

  8. Garnish with sunflower seeds (if using). Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions

I love serving these with toppings such as shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, crumbled bacon, chopped parsley, chopped sage, sliced avocado, or pumpkin seeds.

  • Use thick slices of bread, so they hold the eggs properly and do not become too crunchy or burn while the eggs are cooking.
