Egg In The Hole!

Did that title get your attention? LMAO! Welcome back to another Tasty Tuesday!

This is a dish my friends mom used to make for us when I was younger. I stayed over at their house many of nights and almost every morning we would get these!

The recipe is simple! Butter a piece of bread on both sides and cut out a circle in the middle (I just turn a glass upside down, press and twist). Throw it in a hot skillet and then crack an egg to put in the hole. I break my yolks cause I don't like them runny but you can leave them whole too. Add a dash of salt and pepper. The top ones have more than a dash but those were for hubby...I don't like as much pepper as he does! Once the bottom is golden brown flip and cook the other side. I also use the little circles that I cut out and add a cinnamon/sugar mixture to them. Kind of a sweet morning treat!

Let me know if you make these and what you think! Good ole' southern comfort food....without the liquor! LOL!

I so miss making these for my children- I used a cookie cutter like a heart or shamrock...they loved these when they were little.
Thanks for bringing and old memory back.
blessings to you, Dawn ll
