PW Egg-In-The-Hole . . .

This fun recipe is found on pages 46-47
in Pioneer Woman Cooks.
The first time I ate egg-in-the-hole was
at Cracker Barrel a few years ago.
They called it egg-in-a-basket.
I have fixed it for myself a few times
since my Cracker Barrel experience.
It's an easy way to have your eggs and toast.

I decided to cut a star instead of a
circle in the wheat bread.
When Ethan's older I think he might enjoy
eating his egg in a star.

PW calls for 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter in
the skillet, but I reduced it to 2 teaspoons.

After the skillet heats up add your egg.
Isn't that adorable?!?

After I flipped the toast over and let
it cook a few minutes I flipped it again
so the star shape could be seen.
If you don't do this the other side
doesn't look like a star.

I toasted the star shape in the skillet
then drizzled it with a little honey.

I think kids and adults of all ages will
enjoy this little variation of
egg-in-the-hole, I sure did!

Hope you return next Tuesday for
another PW recipe. I've been reading through
the book and have a couple of recipes in mind.
Pay Denise a visit, she's also doing PW every Tuesday.

Hi Carol, so glad you found my blog and left a comment, how neat you are cooking your way through PW's book too, don't you just love it :-) I'm having so much fun. I will add myself as a follower and be sure to be back soon to see what you're doing. I'm making the burritos next week ;-)

This is new to me and a great idea. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals---especially on weekends or when eating out. Good choice, and you keep on going, girl!

Happy Day,

Those are very tasty and such a fun thing to do. I had kids Betty Crocker cookbook and I made that when I was a kid. I like the star shape. That would be a great 4th of July breakfast!

I've been doing this for years for my kids...they always loved it! I just love breakfast food anytime! Come say hi :D

Patsy said...

What a happy way to do breakfast.

Mari said...

I made this for myself a few days ago - yum! Mine wasn't as cute though. I didn't have a star!
I have the PW cookbook too and am loving it!

Opie Dawn said...

Oh my goodness! You have me craving Cracker Barrel!!! I have made this for Elise a few times and she really likes it. Yummy post!

I've never made this, but it looks like something my kids would love to learn to make. We're going to have to try it. We like to make breakfast for supper sometimes.

Thank you sweet Carol, for wishing warmer weather on us. We are a farming community, and we do need the moisture. However... according to the water watchers, we are close to 170% of normal for our water year. Ok.. time for sunshine :)
Thanks again for the warm wishes, you are too sweet !

That looks really good. I think I could actually make it for breakfast. Then again, that would be great any time of the day. I found "The Pioneer Woman" in January, love her blog.

valerie said...

Looks delicious!
All her recipes look so good.

I agree with you....kids and adults both will enjoy this fun meal.

Was it windy enough for you today?
We lost two limbs from our peach tree.

Have a great weekend Carol.

This is a great idea! I'll keep this idea in my pocket as the grands get older:) I had a ball making pancakes for Sam at Christmas time- his favorite breakfast so far.

Thanks for sharing it!

Have a great weekend, Carol!
