Easy Egg in a Hole - Such a fun way to enjoy eggs and toast! Make it extra special by using a heart-shaped cookie cutter!

Raise your hand if you’ve ever eaten breakfast for lunch or dinner. We do ALL THE TIME. A couple of our favorites are pancakes and eggs and toast, so today, I’m sharing a fun twist on Egg in a Hole. The first time I cooked egg in a hole, it was because I had seen Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) make it for her family. Can I just say how much I adore Ree? She’s such an inspiration!

Heck, the kids even love helping with this recipe. They help me push the cookie cutter into the piece of bread and then I finish it up and lift the piece out. Kids love to butter bread, too, so this is another step they can help with!

This recipe is literally three ingredients, not counting the salt, pepper and garnish. So easy. My kids don’t really care for sunny-side-up eggs so I often just whisk an egg with a little milk together in a bowl and pour that into the center of the toast. For the scrambled eggs I flip the piece of toast halfway through. 😉 It’s really quite the perfect breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner.
