For some reason being snowed in is making me want to cook. This morning I made eggs in the hole, eggs in the basket, eggs in the nest....whatever you want to call it. It is very simple but a good way to spice up the usually breakfast fare.
-Start by cutting a hole in a piece of sandwich bread. I used the rim of a wine glass but a biscuit cutter would be the best tool (I don't have one...remind me to register for that).
-Next, add 2 tablespoons of butter to a pan over medium-low heat (iron skillet works best).
-Once the butter has melted add the bread. Allow that to cook for about 1 minute.
-Carefully crack a large egg into the hole that you cut. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
-Cook for 1-2 minutes then CAREFULLY flip with a spatula.
-Sprinkle other side with salt and pepper and let cook for another 1-2 minutes.
