Breakfast

Egg in a Frame

An Egg in a Frame is a great way to make a breakfast your kids will not only love, but it will make them smile

The general idea is to cut a hole in a slice of bread and fry an egg in the hole

There happens to be a lot of names for this little gem like, toad in a hole, bird in a nest, egg in a hole, peekaboo toast and eggs in a basket

No matter what you want to call it, it’s a tasty and fun breakfast

My kids asked me to make this one morning and just moments later I called them in for breakfast

They couldn’t believe how fast I cooked them breakfast until they saw my presentation

Well…I thought it was funny

Now let’s get back to breakfast

I’m starting with three pieces of potato bread, three eggs and three different tools for cutting hole in the bread

On the right we have a biscuit cutter, in the middle we are going old school with a juice glass and on the left is a heart shaped cutter

The reason I’m showing more than one is so you realize you can use household items and you can make things fun

A heart for Valentine’s, a Shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day, etc., etc.

Use your tools and punch some holes out

Make sure you keep them though, we’ll use them as well

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan over medium heat

Once melted add in the bread and the center pieces you’ve removed

Cook for a couple of minutes or until the underside is lightly browned (you’re allowed to peek)

Crack an egg into each of the holes

Cook 1-2 minutes or until the white starts to set

Gently flip each one over

Touch the egg with the spatula to test for firmness and remove when the egg is at your desired doneness

Around 1 -2 minutes
