Scrambled Egg in the Hole

Source: Everyday Food, March 2007


  • 1 large egg
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 slice crusty Italian bread (1 inch thick)
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 ounce extra-sharp cheddar cheese, coarsely grated


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 teaspoon cold water; season with salt and pepper. Using the rim of a small glass, cut a hole in bread; discard cutout.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium until foaming. Place bread in skillet; carefully pour egg mixture into hole (if egg leaks out of the bread, use a spatula to push it back). Sprinkle egg with cheese.
