Grilled Cheese Egg in the Hole

Grilled Cheese Egg in the Hole: a simple but impressive breakfast sandwich by I bake he shoots |

I don’t like eggs.

Yes, I’m crazy about breakfast, but not if it includes something scrambled. I guess I’ll eat them if:

  1. The doctor says “Do it!”
  2. They’re hard boiled.
  3. There’s a bowl of Sriracha nearby(seriously, gotta mask that eggy taste).

Don’t get me wrong, eggs are amazing and extremely versatile. Wanna make a custard? Yolks are your best friend. Meringue for my pie? Hand me those egg whites. Need a lift for your cake? You get the picture.

And let us not forget cookies. I make a lot cookies. Sometimes they’re of the sugar cookie variety. On occasion, they’re of the brown butter pumpkin shortbread variety. Needless to write, I always have a lot eggs hanging around. Yesterday, I used a couple to make a Grilled Cheese Egg in the Hole. What?

If you are an egg fan and a grilled cheese fan, you need to make this sandwich. Trust. They’re very impressive, equally simplistic, and go from kitchen to table in less than 10 minutes. Plus, if you’re like me, you’ll be the lucky one eating all the leftover holes of grilled cheese. Now, that’s what I’m talking about!
