Recipe (kind of) | Egg in a Hole – Inspired by Donal :)

29 Apr

I love Donal Skehan. I’m not sure how I first heard about him but I’ve been following him on Twitter for years (how ironic is that referring to Twitter with such longstanding presence?). Plus I like his hair…

He literally IS the food porn king in Ireland as far as I’m concerned and I am always making notes what to try next inspired by his latest Twitter post/Instagram pic.

Enter Egg in a Hole. I saw it on Donal’s Instagram, I tried it. It rocked. Thanks Donal!

Use a glass or something with a fairly thin rim to cut out your hole. Be sure to check that you have enough space around the bread to contain the egg.

Lightly fry one side of the bread in a little oil and butter, then turn over and crack your egg into the hole.

I pricked my yolks but it would be just as tasty with intact yolks.

If you have guests staying and want to impress (or warp their mind), serve up this little treat. Easy to create and visually effective.

      Wine glasses – perfect for cutting the hole! Mine were too small unfortunately 😦
