Cheesy Egg In A Hole With Bacon
* sliced bread, any kind you prefer
*eggs; 1 egg per toast
*salt and pepper to taste
*bacon cooked and crumbled; I used 2 pieces per toast
*shredded cheese, any kind that you prefer; I used a cheddar and Monterey blend
*parsley or chives for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 °
Lightly spray a baking sheet with no stick spray.
Butter the bread. With a small drinking glass or a biscuit cutter, make a hole in the center of each bread slice. Don’t toss out the circle that is cut from the hole, it makes great mini toast.
Crack an egg into the hole and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the bacon crumbles around the bread then sprinkle the cheese over the bacon, but not covering the egg completely. Completely covering the egg with the cheese does not allow the egg to cook properly.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted, the whites of the egg is, set but the yolk is still runny.
If you prefer the yolk not so runny, cook a little longer.
Garnish with parsley or chives.
Serve while hot.
