This is one of those absurdly simple, “how in the hell did I not think of this thing sooner??” breakfasts. And yet, it took me stumbling across a photo of this somewhere for doing this to cross my mind.

I’m not kidding how simple this is. Take bagel. Put larger hole in bagel if necessary. Crack egg in bagel. Fry. Enjoy egg and bagel.

Egg in a Bagel Hole
Makes two bagel halves, enough for a good breakfast

Ingredients

  • one bagel, sliced in half
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 eggs
  • salt, pepper to taste

Take a pan and melt half the butter in it. Take a bagel half, and, if you don’t think the hole’s big enough, make it a little bigger, enough so that an egg yolk can fit in the center. Place the bagel inside down in the skillet, crack the egg into the yolk, season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan, and cook until the egg yolk is done to your liking.

Do the same thing with the other bagel half.

Voila: breakfast.
