Herbed Eggs in a Hole

Herbed Eggs in a Hole

The best breakfast sandwich ever! I can’t imagine my lazy weekend breakfast or brunch without eggs in a hole. Here’s how you fix our (and yours probably too) family favourite for lots of people at once in a fuss-free way: your oven.

Of course the amount of people you can feed at once depends on the size of your oven, and size does matter, but it should give you far more room to work with than an average stovetop has to offer.

As an added bonus the bread will be really light and crunchy! I spread the bread with a compound butter giving it an earthy flavour with just enough kick to make it more interesting. Top it off with a handful of grated Parmesan and you’re good to go.

 

Ingredients:

bread
eggs (mine were size M)
butter (about a tbsp p/p)
handful flatleaf parsley
pinch of chili powder
grated Parmesan
pepper & salt

Directions:

 
Preheat your oven to 180Cº (355Fº) and heat a non-stick sheet pan (I used my non-stick roasting tray) along with it.
 

You can use plain butter, but why be plain when you can make it so much more interesting? I used about 1 tbsp (salted) butter per person.

Add a handful of parsley, roughly 1/4 tsp chili powder, an equal amount of black pepper and a pinch of salt to the butter and blitzed until it’s a pretty green butter.

Let the butter soften completely.
 

Grate the Parmesan… a little goes a long way.

I opted for white casino bread (it’s how we call this square sandwich bread) Cut a hole in the center of the bread using a cookie cutter. Lightly spread the butter on both sides of the bread.

Take the sheet pan from the oven and place the buttered bread in there.

Pop the pan into the oven and give the bread 10 minutes.
 

Break out the eggs. Our slices of bread are fairly small so I opted for medium eggs.

After those first 10 minutes the bread should be crispy and golden on the bottom-side.

Flip them over and work fast, the pan needs to stay hot!

Break the eggs into the holes. The hot pan will keep the egg-white where we want it.

Season the eggs with a pinch of salt, pepper and a small handful of Parmesan.

Put the pan back into the oven and give them another 10 minutes, until the egg whites have set but the yolks are still slightly runny.
 

So easy and so darn tasty!

    Pineapple & Fish Curry

    Hi there, remember me? It’s been a while, but I’m still kicking! Life got in the way of blogging. I hate it when that happens, but the good news is: I did manage to create a few pretty awesome recipes, if I say so myself. I’ve especially gone crazy ever since I bought my masala dabbas —round Indian spice boxes made from stainless steel with 7 round compartments and two measuring spoons….

      Miso Udon Noodle Soup

      You know that pesky 4pm snack phenomenon, right? Around that time most of us suffer from a serious energy dip, I know I do. What a lot of Dutch folks do (and probably a gazillion others around the world as well) is whip up a cup-a-soup. For years I kept a package or two in the cupboard, while I never really did like how it tasted. Heck, it’s powdered instant soup: flavour-wise…

        Cauliflower Patties

        I came up with this recipe years ago, when the kiddo was still a toddler and was going through one of his super annoying “No. I’m not eating vegetables and you can’t make me!’ phases. I found a workaround when it finally dawned on me that once I turned vegetables into patties and browned them, he’d eat anything I’d put in there. Ha, take that, punk! 1-0 for the self-proclaimed…

          Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs & Jalapeño Cucumber Relish

          This is, hands down, the best relish I’ve ever had and it will become a serious staple in our home. It’s a flavour explosion like no other: sweet, sour, slightly salty, fresh, crunchy, spicy and so darn flavourful. It really packs a punch. This simple and fast relish from the Tacolicious book alone makes the gazillion calories in this bacon wrapped ‘hot dog’ totally worth it. While the original recipe…

            Soft Wraps

            It wasn’t until my dough for these fluffy soft wraps was rising, when someone on twitter asked me for the recipe. You’re kinda limited with only 140 characters, so on a whim I decided to finish the recipe armed with my camera. I can be sweet! Everyone needs a good soft wrap recipe, right? We eat them so often here at home! Especially with gyros, even though this recipe differs…
