Egg In A Hole

 Egg In A Hole


My neighbor raises chickens and lucky me received a carton of her eggs.

Look how beautiful they are (and note her wonderful sense of humor):

So, what to do with these beautiful eggs?

I always forget how much I love Egg In A Hole. It is the perfect breakfast…Buttery bread and a runny egg. Yum. Almost silly to post a recipe for it, but I wanted to remind you of this easy morning meal.

You can also take it up a notch and turn your egg in a hole into a robot like I did in this post. While you are over there, check out the recipe for Maple Candied Bacon. Some slices of those would be mighty fine with your eggs.

Bread, sliced
Salt and pepper


1. With a biscuit cutter or sharp knife, cut a hole in the center of the slice of bread.

2. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Place the bread in the skillet and crack the egg straight into the center of hole. Throw the little hole in the skillet, too, to soak up any extra butter.

3. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper to taste. After about a minute, when the white starts to set up, flip bread and egg over with a spatula and cook briefly so the yolk stays runny.

‘Hairball Shimmy’ is the kind of freaking weird song one is likely to find when trying to pair a tune with eggs.

Grandpa Egg released an album in 2011 titled “Songs For My Cat”. No doubt hairballs would make it into the tribute.

‘Hairball Shimmy’ is about the day singer Jeb Morris’ cat coughed up a hairball and looked like he was dancing.

As I said, freaking weird, but flippin’ great.

“Mokey’s doing the Hairball Shimmy
Doing the Hairball Shimmy all around

Meander along till the feeling comes on
Stealing the rhythm and seething the song
Shrug your shoulders, stick out your tongue
Cough the hairball up with your lungs
And say…

Step out from
Behind the velvet curtain. You’re on
Jive with the spasms as they come along
Shrug your shoulders, stick out your tongue
Cough the hairball up with your lungs
And say…

Mokey’s doing the Hairball Shimmy
Staring me in the eyes all the while
He’s doing the Hairball Shimmy
Carry the hairball up and out in style

If you can
Embrace the demons, you’ll set them free
Clean out your closet. Scream and shout in…
Shrug your shoulders, stick out your tongue
Cough the hairball up with your lungs
And say…”

Check out Grandpa Egg on the Website. You can buy the music on Bandcamp.
