Egg in the Hole

Egg in the Hole as the name suggests a sunny side egg in a bread hole baked or cooked on stove-top. As I have mentioned in my previous posts we (me & hubby) love eggs to be part of our diet. This recipe is easy peasy & also scrumptious for a breakfast. I have used white bread in this recipe but you can make this delicious breakfast with any bread of your choice. I have shared both baked & stove-top methods here. My favorite is stove-top because of it's simplicity.
Prep Time-5mins 
Cook Time-15mins 
Serves-2people
Ingredients
4Bread slices {Any kind}
4Eggs 
1/2Cup shredder cheese
Oil or butter
Salt & pepper as needed
Directions
Baked Version 
- Pre-heat oven @350F. Spray a baking sheet with oil & keep aside. 
- Cut bread in a desired shape by using a cookie cutter of your choice. The ideal cutter would be a round one & used the same. 
- Now lay the bread slices on the baking sheet. Break open egg in one bread hole & repeat the same with rest of the eggs. 
- Egg white does skid out a little, place the baking sheet in oven right away you finished filling the holes. 
- Bake for 10mins & remove out of oven. By now eggs are set in place & now evenly sprinkle salt, pepper & cheese on them.
-Bake for another another 5mins or till the cheese is settled on bread. This will set the yolk too.
- Remove from oven. Cool it on counter top & serve it.
Stove-top Version 
- Heat a pan & add a dollop of butter to pan. 
- Place cut bread on pan & break open a egg in to the hole. Cook it for few seconds till the egg white is set. Flip bread & cook for few seconds. With this the yellow won't be runny & will be set perfectly.
- Now reverse the bread. Sprinkle salt, pepper & cheese on bread. Allow cheese to melt & it hardly takes seconds for cheese to melt as the bread is already hot enough.
- Once the cheese is melted remove bread from pan.
- Repeat the same with rest of the bread slices & eggs.
-Serve warm & enjoy the healthy breakfast.
