Ahh, good ole’ mornings. I find myself in between disliking them and loving them. On the one hand it means I need to get out of the warm comfort of my bed, very much dislike, but on the other hand, I get my morning coffee and breakfast, very much like!
Eggs have become a huge part of our daily morning routine in the past few years. Whether it be scrambled, a fried egg over toast, hard boiled eggs or in a breakfast burrito they are always there to give our entire family the energy that we need to tackle our day right off the bat.
Did you know that a single hard-boiled egg contains, vitamin A, folate, Vitamin B5, B12 and B2 along with decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, and Zinc. With 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats eggs really are a super food you do not want to miss out on.
Not a morning person? Eggs can be had anytime of the day! A reader recently reminded me that you can add them to salads for a hearty protein filled lunch or dinner along with creating a quiche. Hard boil an egg and you have a quick and easy snack. Endless possibilities my friends.
- 10 slices of whole grain bread (or any bread you prefer)
- 10 eggs
- TBSP of Butter
- 1 cup of grated cheese
*You will need a glass or round cookie cutter to make the hole in the bread.*
Heat your griddle or frying pan with the TBSP of butter over low-medium heat
Using the top of your glass or cookie cutter make the holes in the bread while the butter melts.
Place the bread on the griddle or pan along with the cut out circles
One at a time crack each egg into the hole
Once the eggs are almost cooked sprinkle on some cheese to melt it. A trick we picked up was to cover the eggs in a hole while they cooked to help evenly cook the eggs without burning the bread.
Plate your Eggs in a Hole and pair it with whatever your heart desires. Done! How easy was that?
