We’ve all heard of egg in a hole. Carve out a circle in your toast and fry and egg right in there. It’s a breakfast dream — you slice into the bread and have the yolk fill the plate, and you’re able to use the bread to soak up the yolk. You can also try different variations of the egg in a hole with donuts, grilled cheese, and even waffles. While the options are endless and all very scrumptious, nothing beats this variation.
Instead of making an egg in a hole using toast, make it with a bagel. Poppy seed, onion, and plain all work with this wonderful concoction. For this recipe, you’ll need a bagel (split in half), one tablespoon of butter, two eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. You’ll split the bagel in half in order to make two eggs in a bagel holes (trust us you’ll eat both).
To make the eggs in a bagel hole, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and place the bagel inside the skillet. The best part is that you’ll have a crispy bagel and soft runny egg. You’ll need to crack one egg over the bagel hole, season with salt and pepper, and cover the sauté pan with a lid for three minutes.
Then you’ll have a wonderful breakfast recipe that will beat all of the other egg in a hole variations.
