{heart-shaped} egg-in-hole


It's snow day season in the Northeast! 


Whether the call from school comes in at 5am, or you go to bed knowing you'll have a 'leisurely' morning ahead, we might as well embrace the extra time we have to make breakfast, right?


"Egg in Hole" has become my go-to these past two weeks of {seemingly} endless snow days and delays. Any shape cookie cutter will do, but since it's February, I'm mortifying my boys with lovey dovey hearts.


All you do is cut the center out of piece(s) of bread, and


pop that center piece into the toaster. {You'll be treating the cut-out piece like toast.}


Then the outside crust goes into a buttered fry pan, and you crack an egg into the center.


Use a butter knife to scramble the egg a bit {if your kids are like mine and will avoid the yolk if it's whole…}.


Flip it when the egg starts to set.


My kids love this meal a) because it takes a few extra minutes for me to make, which means a few extra minutes for them to play with their LEGOS and b)


b/c they can pick it up with their hands.


Voila! Egg in Hole. So easy, but seems special. Especially on a snowy morning.
