Breakfast

Egg in a Frame

Lightly toasted potato bread with a fried egg cooked in the center of it where a hole was punched out. There is a silver fork with a piece of toast and egg on it on the plate which is white. The golden yellow yolk is leaking out of the egg onto the plate and the hole that was punched out is also toasted and balanced on the toast. The plate is on a wooden cutting board with a green cloth under half

A rich delicious fried egg cooked inside of buttery toast

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, egg in a nest 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 to eat

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 business

We typically use a biscuit cutter but you can have fun with this and do all kinds of shapes using cookie cutters

For the sake of timing we are just going to demonstrate one helping

We are using 1 slice of potato bread

Place the biscuit cutter in the middle of the bread and push down

Make sure you keep the piece that you cut out as we are going to toast that up as well

Add in the egg and we are all set

Ha ha ha… I just can’t get enough of this

Enough of the joking around let’s get cooking

20200105_133632

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium heat

Once the butter is bubbling add in the bread and cook 1 minute or until it starts to lightly toast

20200105_133834

Flip the bread

Carefully crack an egg into the hole

20200105_134010

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

Flip and cook another minute or 2 depending on your desired doneness of the egg

I tend to gently touch the yolk with a spatula to see how set it feels

Sprinkle with some salt and pepper, serve immediately and dig in!
