Egg-In-A-Hole Grilled Cheese

Egg-In-A-Hole Grilled Cheese is the perfect after-school snack. A grilled cheese filled with gooey cheese and a hole cut in the center and an egg cooked in the center. It's the best of both worlds.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices bread of choice I used white; I think 7-grain would be lovely
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Kosher salt & Black Pepper
  • 3 slices prosciutto

Instructions

  • Using a biscuit or cookie cutter, cut a 2-inch hole from the center of both slices of bread. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. When it's melted, add the two slices of bread. Let the bread lightly toast for a minute, or until lightly golden brown, and then flip the two slices over. Dab the remaining butter in the middle of the bread circles. We want to ensure the egg doesn't stick.
  • Crack the eggs into the holes and season with salt and pepper. If you're using prosciutto, chill with the salt. Just add a little.
  • Cover the pan for a minute, just until the egg whites are sorta set. Next, add the grated cheese to one half and cover for another minute, or until the cheese is practically melted.
  • Using a spatula, gently top the cheese slice with the egg slice. Cook for one more minute, or until the cheese is melted.
