I have to admit, I’m not really a breakfast person anymore. I belong to the club of just coffee drinkers in the morning.
But if we have sourdough bread at home and fresh eggs from our neighbour’s chickens … Well, who can say no to scrumptious breakfast eggs in a hole dish.

I like this breakfast dish especially on lazy Sunday mornings ideally paired with some yummy waffles or pancakes for the sweet part afterwards.
By the way, if you don’t have a wafflemaker, check out my post on how to make waffles without a waffle iron.
Another great match with our breakfast eggs in a hole would be my skillet potatoes with onion dish.
Whatever you fancy, you can’t go wrong with any of my breakfast ideas.
Enough being said, let’s check out my detailed recipe on how you can make these flavoursome breakfast eggs in just under 15 minutes.
So, pour yourself a cup of Joe and get cooking.
Easy And Delicious Breakfast Eggs In A Hole
Breakfast Eggs in a Hole
- A knife (to cut bread slices)
- A cookie-cutter
- A large frying pan
- A pair of tongs
- 2 slices bread
- 2 eggs (preferably free-range)
- vegetable oil
- some butter
- salt and pepper
- Cut two thick slices of sourdough bread.
- With a cookie-cutter cut out a hole in each of the slices
- Heat up some oil and butter on medium heat in a large frying pan.
- Once the oil/butter is hot, place the bread slices and the cutout bread into the pan.
- Fry until golden brown on one side.
- Flip them over, carefully crack the eggs and put one egg in each bread hole.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Place on a lid so the eggs can cook through.
- Check after a few minutes, if the egg white has set.
- If not put the lid on again.
- The eggs are cooked once the egg whites have set. It should take around 5 minutes. I do like the egg yolk runny. Just cook them to your liking.
- Serve on a plate and garnish with some parsley or chives.
