Give eggs and toast a fun twist with this easy Egg in a Hole recipe. All you need is a biscuit cutter, or even a small glass, to cut out the hole. Use the toast rounds to dip in the yummy yolk.


    • 4 slices whole wheat or multigrain bread
    • 2 Tbsp trans fat free margarine, melted
    • 4 whole eggs
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • Black pepper to taste


    • Set the broiler to low. With a 2 1/2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut a hole from the center of each bread slice.
    • Brush the melted margarine on both sides of the bread slices and cutouts, including the inside of the hole.
    • In a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, toast the slices and cutouts of bread until golden. Flip the bread. Crack an egg into each hole.
    • Cover and cook until eggs set, about 1 1/2 minutes. Place the skillet under the broiler just until the egg whites are fully cooked, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, with the bread round on the side for dipping.
