Egg-in-a-hole, -basket, or -frame—whatever you call it, an egg fried in the center of a carb-y vessel is a glorious thing to wake up to. Let’s be real, not everyone has the energy to roll out of bed and play Betty Crocker with cookie cutters and slices of toast. If you prefer this method for egg-in-a-hole, you go, Glen Coco. For the sleepier folks, this is America, land of the free and home of the brave, where bagels and doughnuts are sold in every corner store and supermarket. Save the toast for tomorrow’s avocado mash and embrace the sweet or savory egg-in-a-whatever-you-call-it.

Directions

The same steps apply here—just switch out the bagel halves for doughnuts.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When it starts foaming, place the bagels in the pan, cut side down, and carefully crack an egg into each hole.

Step 2

Cook for 2 minutes, then carefully slide your spatula under the egg, and flip. Don’t hesitate, just do it.

Step 3

For the ultimate #yolkporn moment, only cook the egg for a couple more minutes. If you’re not into that sort of thing, just keep it on the heat until the yolk meets your standards.
