Looking for a simple, quick breakfast that will wake the body, stimulate the brain, and satisfy your little one until lunchtime? Here is a protein-packed, fiber-filled Egg-in-a-Hole breakfast that I use with my own children:
To make Egg-in-a-Hole, you will need:
- 1 slice of whole wheat bread
- 1 egg
- cooking spray
- salt and pepper, to taste
- a glass
Take the glass and press a circle into the bread; remove the circle and reserve.
Spray a griddle or pan with cooking spray and place the bread on the hot griddle (in lieu of cooking spray, you may use olive oil or butter). Crack an egg into the “hole” and cook on medium heat, flipping mid-way to assure cooking on both sides. Simultaneously, place the circle on the hot griddle, and cook until browned on both sides.
The crispy circle is delicious on its own, or can be used to dip into the egg yolk. Egg in a Hole is a quick and yummy breakfast and is sure to please your little (and big) students, as they scurry off to school.
