Egg In A Hole

Egg In A Hole

Easy, quick and nutrient dense! This 3 ingredient  breakfast (or snack!) is a cinch to whip up and so fun! You could even add on a sprinkling of cheese or for toddlers and older children a drizzle of maple syrup is delicious! 

Get your little ones involved with using a cookie cutter and cracking the eggs!  

I’m so thrilled to be partnering up with St Ewe Eggs to bring you this recipe! I used their new generation  super eggs for this - they are an excellent source of vitamin d, selenium and DHA omega 3’s. The free range hens are fed a special super feed that amps up the nutritional value of the eggs.

For a fun Halloween twist use a pumpkin or ghost cookie cutter instead! I also used mini cookie cutters to cut out some pumpkin shapes fruit to go with it!


Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 5 mins

Serves: 1 adult & 1 toddler

What do you need?

2 pieces of bread 

2 eggs

2 tbsp butter 


Using a cookie cutter, cut out the center of the pieces of bread and set the cut out aside. 

Butter both sides of the bread. 

Heat a large pan over a medium heat and and add a dash of butter. 

Add the bread to the pan. 

Crack 1 egg into the cut out. 

Cook for a couple of minutes on each side (or less if you prefer a runny egg). 

Repeat with the remaining slice of bread and egg. For adults sprinkle some sea salt over the egg!
