This is a great breakfast to make with your children. If they do not like the spicy flavor of hot sauce, simply omit.

For mornings when you have a few more minutes, this is delicious served with a breakfast sausage, oven roasted parsley potatoes, or bacon and a side of fruit.

Here’s my classic egg in the hole recipe. I think you’ll love it.

  1. Hi Robyn, it’s the girl you met in Atlanta and gave me a ride the last night. You site looks great! I have made this egg in hole for valentines day with a heart cut out…the kids think it neat.

  2. OMG! I made it this morning and it was delicious. I also squeezed two sausage patties between the two slices of bread. Yum! Only problem was, when I took a big bite all the runny yolk came out of the bottom of it. Maybe I didn’t cook it long enough or something? Fast, delicious breakfast!

  3. Thanks for the great reminder of a delicious breakfast! I haven’t had this in a LONG time so I made it this morning! Instead of the hot sauce, I sprinkled about a teaspoon of real bacon bits over the egg just after I cracked it. My husband loves bacon and will eat it on anything and everything. I love that I can save some calories by adding bacon bits for flavor and not having to eat a slice (or two or three!!) of bacon on the side. Thanks again! Your site is so cute!
