Breakfast for Kids: Egg-in-a-Hole


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.

  1. My sister used to make this all the time when we were little. We found it in a kids cookbook and called it “Egg in a frame”. So good! I had forgotten about it though. I will have to make it with my kids. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Oh how I love it! I’ve made these for the boys and then asked my friends what they called it (seems we all have smart mom’s who served us this as kids) I heard names such as, Birdie in the birdhouse, Pirate eye, egg in a basket and a couple of others that are escaping me now. Cute post, feel free to check out my recipes/ kid friendly too…Happy Cookin!
