Brett’s Egg Frames
My fiance has been looking forward to the day that he would “make” my blog. He was pretty excited a couple weeks ago when I first made a point to mention him in a post (See: Hearty Lasagna Soup) right after we got engaged. But this time around he really is the star, because he was the chef. I am not sure how far his kitchen skills go, but I love to bake and cook and he likes to eat what I make… so we may never really find out. There is one thing I know though, and that is: he CAN make eggs.
I thought he was making eggs, and he ended up with these “egg frames”, as he grew up calling them. He claims he has patented this recipe, but I am sure the “recipe” is not original, although his name for them very well may be. Pioneer Woman featured this same thing on her website a year and a half ago and it also appeared in her cookbook that was launched later last year. In her “Egg-in-a-hole” post she references a whole lot of names, but “egg frames” is not one of them. So, at least for the purposes of this post I am going to give him the patented name: “Brett’s Egg Frames”.
Following is the recipe, in his words:
Put a “chunk” of butter in a skillet over heat on an oven butter. While the butter is melting, take a piece of bread and cut a hole out of the middle using a glass cup. Put the slice of bread in the skillet. Crack an egg and pour into the hole in the bread. Keep over heat until the egg is cooked. Also cook the bread cut-out and eat with jelly.
