How to make Baked Egg in a Hole

You will pre-cook the bacon to start. We won’t be cooking the bacon to crispy yet, just cooked enough to get it started and release grease so that it won’t make the toast too greasy.

Place bacon on a sheet pan in a single layer. Transfer to a cold oven. Turn the oven to 400ºF. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate and dab off any extra grease with more paper towels .

While the bacon cooks lightly butter both sides of all the bread. You don’t need to use all the butter. Using a biscuit cutter or the top of a drinking glass cut a hole in the center of each piece of bread.

On a clean sheet pan lay down a sheet of parchement paper. Lay the cut bread and circles in a single layer on the parchment paper lined sheet pan. 

Transfer two strips of bacon to each hole in a bread making an ‘X’ shape.

Very carefully crack an egg in each hole over top the bacon. Sprinkle the parmesean cheese over the bread and eggs.

Tips, Tricks, and Questions

  • To keep the eggs from sticking to the sheet pan the parchment paper is crucial here, I tested many different ways to keep the eggs from sticking to the sheet pan and the parchment paper worked best!
  • You don’t have to use the parmesan cheese, you can use a different cheese, like cheddar! Or the cheese can be left off.
  • While I love thick cut bacon it doesn’t work great in the recipe since it takes longer to cook. I also have a personal preference of staying away from the sweet bacon, like the maple flavored ones but again that is a personal preference since I think it doesn’t taste that great with the eggs.

Can I use any kind of bread?

Yes, why not?! Of course you will want to make sure it fits on the sheet pan, but there is really no wrong answer to what kind of bread you can use.

Everyday bread, sourdough, some fancy brioche, it should all work!
