Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Best Bread for Eggs in a Hole?

This egg in a hole recipe can be made with any type of bread that you prefer. I like a thicker bread such as Texas Toast but we just recommend that is a larger slice. Sourdough bread would also be a great option.

Can you Make this with Scrambled Eggs?

Yes, you make this with scrambled eggs and it is still delicious. Prepare your eggs, and pour the egg in the middle of the hole. Then take a small spatula and carefully scramble the eggs in the hole.

How to Store Leftovers

This recipe is best served fresh, but if you do have leftovers store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I recommend eating within a few days.
