31 Eggs In Exciting Holes

The phrase "exciting holes" might speak to you in a way that's not related to food. I'm OK with that.

A classic Egg in a Hole is great just as it is.

But there is more.

1. What if you bake the egg into an avocado?

VERY EXCITING.

2. Or into a tomato.

3. Into a bread boat with bacon and tomatoes.

4. Bake it into an acorn squash.

5. In a bell pepper.

6. In an eggplant.

7. In onion rings.

8. Baked eggs in dinner rolls with hot sauce is the easiest/cheapest dinner ever.

9. Presenting: Huevos in a hole.

10. Nestle your egg into a skillet of tomato sauce, then bake.

11. Or into an entire casserole.

12. A baked potato makes a very exciting hole.

13. So does a doughnut.

14. An egg lends itself to teddy bear shapes.

15. Dog shapes.

16. Flowers.

17. Christmas morning-appropriate shapes.

18. Basically, any shape for which you own a cookie cutter.

24. There are exciting holes that aren't made of other food.

25.

But let's not explore that territory too much because someone's bound to make a gross joke.

26. Just because you put your egg in an exciting hole doesn't mean you have to stop there.

27. Make it a part of something, like a Caesar salad...
