Spicy Egg In The Hole

When the temperature drops I love to have spicy food. It warms me up from the inside out and I love it! Egg in the hole is such a classic, fun breakfast and we eat a lot of them here in this house. I love them because they are so fast, easy and scrumptious. So this weekend I decided to bring the heat a little with this spicy egg in the hole version! The process was exactly the same as the classic. I just incorporated jalapeno and salsa to spice them up.

I sliced a whole jalapeno pepper to start. Only half of it went into the spicy egg in the hole recipe, so the rest was packed for later use!
Then I used a 2.5 inch biscuit cutter to get the perfect sized holes in my two bread slices. That was one of the keys I learned in making these babies. If the hole was too small the egg wouldn't cook through properly before the bread was burned. If it was too big, the egg was overcooked before the bread could get perfectly toasted.

My sliced jalapeno went right into the hole on the griddle, followed by the egg, cheese and salt. It needed to set on that side until the egg whites just started to firm up and turn white.

I loved how the jalapeno was all nestled into the egg when I flipped over the spicy egg in the hole! The other side needed to set for just 30 seconds and then it was ready.

I topped each spicy egg in the hole with a spoonful of salsa. Then it was time for my favorite moment in eating. It's a thing with me. I cut into that perfectly cooked egg yolk and it ran all over the toast. The way it mingled with the salsa made me so happy. It was such an incredible and simple breakfast to warm us up! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter for greasing the griddle
  • 2 slices whole grain sandwich bread
  • 4 thin slices jalapeno pepper use the rest in omelettes or soup later!
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 pinches shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 spoonfuls salsa for topping
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat an electric griddle to 350 or a large non-stick griddle pan over medium high heat. Use a 2.5 inch biscuit cutter to cut a perfect hole in the center of each slice of bread. Grease the griddle with the tablespoon of butter and toast both the bread and the cut out circles on the first side for a minute. Then flip them over.
  2. Place two jalapeno slices in the hole of each slice of bread, then crack an egg into each hole with them. The egg will surround the jalapeno. Place a pinch of shredded cheddar and salt on top of each egg and let everything cook for about 2 minutes. The egg whites will start to look white instead of clear. Remove the cut out circles of bread to plates at this point and carefully flip the bread slices over to set the yolk for 30 seconds. Plate the bread slices when the 30 seconds is up and top each of them with a spoonful of salsa. Serve immediately and enjoy!

  1. My husband loves jalapenos but I can’t tolerate spicy foods. This would be the perfect way to improve upon his breakfast because it would be easy enough to leave the pepper out of mine.
