Egg In a Hole Bagel
Hi Everyone, are you looking for a super, simple breakfast or brunch idea?
Try this Egg In a Hole Bagel!
It is often one of my easy, go-to breakfast recipes with only 2 required ingredients (the egg and the bagel:).
I love making it with a runny yolk but you could make it more cooked, depending on your preferences.
This is such a satisfying, yet simple breakfast to enjoy.
If you can get farm-fresh eggs to enjoy with this recipe, all the better!
I use a cookie cutter to cut out the middle of the bagel to allow the egg to sit completely in the center.
- 1 large egg
- 1 bagel, sliced in half, use a cookie cutter to make the middle of the hold larger to accommodate an egg
- unsalted butter or vegan butter substitute (like Earth Balance)
- Kosher salt, amount to taste
- Fresh ground pepper, amount to taste
- grated cheese of your choice, optional
- cast iron skillet
- cookie cutter
- plate, for serving
- chef’s knife
- cutting board
- How to Make Half and Half
- Pan-Fried Fairytale Eggplant
- Wacky Cake
- Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
- Egg In a Hole Bagel
