This beauty takes me straight back to my childhood. I remember this being made for me as a kid and I actually thought it was real magic! Of course now I know it’s not but Egg In A Hole is still pretty amazing. Throw in some bacon too and you’ve got yourself a whole sandwich of awesome right there!
Here is what you will need to serve 1.
(Recipe adapted from BBC Good Food)
- Olive Oil, For Frying
- 4 Rashers of Smoked Streaky Bacon
- 2 Thick Slices of Any Bread of Your Choice (I used Tiger Bread)
- 1 tbsp Mayonnaise
- 1 Small Egg
- Large Frying Pan with a Lid
- Circle Cookie Cutter *
*Mine was 6cm but use whatever size cutter fits within the bread you are using.
Egg In A Hole Bacon Sandwich Recipe
First heat the frying pan over a medium heat then add a splash of oil to the pan. Next, lay in the bacon and fry to your liking, turning once to ensure even cooking.
Remove the bacon from the pan and set to one side to keep warm. Keep the pan over a medium heat.
Using your circle cutter, cut a hole in the middle of one of the slices of bread.
Then spread some mayonnaise on one side of both slices of bread…
While the pan is still over a medium heat, place both slices of bread mayonnaise side down and fry until golden.
Then flip the bread over & crack the egg into the hole. Don’t panic if it leaks a little, you can cut this off later.
Fry for a couple of minutes then pop a lid on until the egg white is cooked but the yolk is still nice and runny.
Finally, remove the bread from the pan – if any egg leaked, you can cut it off now and just pop it inside the sandwich so no one will ever know!
Fill the sandwich with the bacon & lashings of your favourite sauce then top with the Egg In A Hole.
How about that eh? Doesn’t it look beautiful?! You just know that every single person that you make this for will love you forever. You can easily change it up to suit everyone’s tastes too. You could change the bread, add some chopped fresh chives or a bit of chilli, even remove the bacon for vegetarians and add some cheese instead. The possibilities are endless!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
