Baked Egg-in-a-Hole

These bacon-and-egg toasts make for a fun breakfast or easy dinner.

  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: one egg toast)


  • 1 slice bacon
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices multigrain bread, lightly toasted
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoons grated fresh pecorino Romano cheese (about 1/4 ounce)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Position an oven rack in the middle setting. Place a jelly-roll pan on rack. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Place bacon on heated pan, and cook until crisp (about 4 minutes); crumble. Cut a hole into the center of each toast using a 3-inch biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter. Reserve cutouts.

3. Arrange bread slices on hot pan; crack one egg into each hole. Sprinkle eggs evenly with crumbled bacon, cheese, and sage. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until egg whites are set. Sprinkle with pepper, and serve with toast cutout.
