egg in a hole

I was inspired by Mostlysunny1’s egg in a hole breakfast so I thought I’d try my hand at it. The recipe is simplicity itself. One piece of bread. Cut a hole in it. Butter it on both sides (I brushed mine with olive oil). Put in a hot pan. Crack one egg directly into the hole. Salt and pepper to taste. Flip once the bottom of the egg is cooked. Serve.

I have it plated here with some hash browns I made and a piece of Spam. Yes, Spam. I’m Korean. I grew up loving Spam. It is tasty, and I don’t care what you think about it. It’s yummy.

This dish is known by a lot of different names, and I’ve tried to catch them all in tags. It’s also featured prominently in the new movie V for Vendetta. I am also told that egg in a hole is very much not British at all.

What do you think of when you hear the word “grains?” Well, Dr. Mehmet Oz wants to expand your vocabulary by adding a new super grain to this list: Amaranth.
Featured on a recent show, this tiny grain is a better choice because it’s high in fiber, calcium and protein when compared to oats, brown rice and millet. Dr. Oz emphasizes that Amaranth lowers cholesterol.
How to use it:
Here’s what Dr. Oz’s experts say about this great grain: “With all the growing varieties of grains on the grocery store shelves, it is no wonder why customers are becoming so confused in making selections. But one thing is not at all confusing ‘ the importance of putting down the white rice and trying to branch out of your comfort zone. Amaranth might be a new name you’ll want to look out for. Amaranth is a ‘pseudo grain’ like quinoa and buckwheat and is extremely high in protein, 13 to 14% in comparison to other grains. Furthermore, amaranth’s inflammation-fighting compounds may play a role in improving heart health and reducing the risk of stroke.”
