There are a few different name variations for “egg-in-a-hole” : Egg in a basket; Bird’s Nest; Frog in a Hole; Moon Eggs; Gas House Eggs.. the list goes on. What did you call it growing up?
– 1 slice good Bread
– 1 Egg
– 1/4 cup Sundried Tomatoes, chopped
– 3 cups fresh Kale, stems removed, leaves chopped
– Juice from 1/2 Lemon
– 2 Tbsp Crumbled Goat Cheese
– Salt & Pepper to taste
– 1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
– 1 Tbsp Butter
In a sautee pan, heat olive oil. Add kale and toss. Salt & pepper to taste. As you continue to cook the kale on low/medium heat, melt butter in another sautee pan. Cut a round circle in your slice of bread and add to the pan. As it’s browning, crack an egg into the “hole” in the middle. Salt & pepper to taste. Add sundried tomatoes to the sauteed kale and toss. After a minute or to (or whenever the egg starts to firm) gently flip the egg-in-a-hole to cook the other side. The goal is not to break the yoke, so take your time. Let the other side of the egg firm up a little before removing from heat. Place on a plate, with the yolk side up. Squeeze lemon juice onto kale & tomato mixture and make sure it’s seasoned to your liking with salt & pepper. Spoon kale mixture onto the egg-in-a-hole and sprinkle with goat cheese. Serve hot.
I’m headed out to LA on Wednesday to visit some friends for a few days and though we have some plans already (Disneyland!!), I would love any advice on where to eat, drink and explore. I haven’t been to that area since I was a kid, so I have zero idea of what to expect… perhaps I can recreate this 20 years later:
If you have advice, please send me a tumblr message or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
