Eggs in a hole last night

Postby Larry Greenly » Wed Aug 30, 2006 10:41 am

Someone gave me a package of Harry & David's smoked salmon, so I used some homemade bread I made a few days ago as the base for Eggs in a Hole.

Essentially you cut a hole in a thick slice of bread, saute one side in butter, then flip it and break an egg into the hole. Season it and cook to preferred doneness. Serve two on a plate, accompanied by dollops of pesto and julienned salmon.

I had green peas as the side dish and a crisp white Pinot Grigio to quaff. Pretty good and I have some leftover salmon for another dish.

And all of this was accompanied by the heavenly aroma of a nearby 30-lb sack of green chiles destined for Ohio's soon-to-be-lucky Niki.

My husband and I have been making Eggs in a Hole ever since watching "V for Vendetta" a couple of weeks ago. IIRC, they called it something else - perhaps One-Eyed somebody or other?

A few years ago we had been somewhat Atkins-oriented and still tend to limit our carbs. So this was the recipe that got him to start making (and eating) homemade bread again. I'm very happy :D

Welcome aboard with your first post. Bread baking is where it's at. I love baking bread of all sorts.

Thanks for the greeting! I was a low-impact member several years ago, but I'm glad to see y'all still here. I'll probably be slinking back more often now that my husband and I are planning a move to Willamette to grow some wine.

Daddy's Eggs!

Postby Mike Conner » Tue Sep 05, 2006 6:25 am

Well, I'm sure "Daddy's Eggs" is not the name most folks use when describing what you call eggs in a hole. But, that has been my name for the method since forever (well, forever for me). Very much a favorite, but I haven't made them in quite some time... must correct this - especially as I have some yummy organic eggs in my fridge.

But, my version has to be 'over easy' with the yolk still in tact. This way, I can carefully cut/pull off the bread from the egg in the middle, cut the bread and use it to dip into the yolk. Once I have finished the fried bread from around the egg, the center piece (also fried on both sides in butter) is used for the now 'empty' egg to sit on and is cut in half/more and eaten.

Yum.

Don't ever serve with anything else other than perhaps some orange juice. Maybe some bacon if you've been cooking ahead.

(I'll have to ask my mom what some of the other names have been used for this style of egg/bread feast)

Thanks,

Mike

Also called rocky mountain toast among many others I'm sure. Obviously bacon fat instead of butter will produce delicious if coronary clogging results.
