Praise the Eggs #1

Because we like them runny!

This is recipe #1 w/ runny eggs, called egg-in-a-hole.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ¾-inch-thick slice country bread, whole wheat or white
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper

PREPARATION

  1. Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of bread. Reserve the removed portion to toast, if desired. Break egg into a teacup.
  2. Heat a heavy cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, or over a medium-hot grill, for about 2 minutes. Add butter. When butter stops foaming, place bread in pan and reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 minutes and flip over. Gently tip egg into hole.
  3. Sprinkle salt and pepper over egg and cook 3 minutes. Carefully flip egg and bread over, and cook for another 30 to 40 seconds, until egg is cooked just over-easy. Transfer to a plate and serve.
