A few weeks ago I had some bread that I was not 100% satisfied with, so I pulled it from taking to the market. I hate waste though, so I saved it to experiment with. If you recall, I started by making Banana Fosters French Toast Casserole (click the link to check it out).

I was also set on making an egg in a hole. I have tried this before, to little (no) success. It was a complete mess. I am not one to give up easily though, so I had to try again. This time I was much more successful. Add some fried eggs on the side and some baked apples and Zach and I had a pretty perfect breakfast! Plus it was really easy to make.

Egg in a Hole


  • 2 cups  cashew butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil

For the Rest

  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 local, pasture-raised eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp bacon fat

Make it Happen: 

Start with the bread. Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all the ingredients well. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes. Cool and slice.

Gently cut a hole in the center of the bread or use a cookie cutter if you have one that is a fitting size.

Heat bacon fat in a skillet at medium heat. Lay down the bread. Allow it to toast and brown on one side. Flip. Allow it to cook for another minute or so. Crack an egg into the center. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow it to cook 3 more minutes or so. Gently flip over. Cook a few more minutes. Plate, serve and eat, hopefully with a beautifully runny egg oozing out over the bread.
