Egg-in-a-Hole with Salsa and Feta Cheese

4 bread slices
2 Tbsp (30 mL) butter
1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
4 eggs
Pinch each salt and freshly ground pepper
½ cup (125 mL) medium salsa
¼ cup (60 mL) crumbled feta cheese


Using 3-inch (8 cm) round cutter, cut out circle from centre of each bread slice; reserve centres.

In large, nonstick skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat; cook bread slices until lightly toasted, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and crack 1 egg into hole of each bread slice.

Season eggs with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until whites are set and yolks are cooked to desired doneness, approximately 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to plates.

Toast reserved bread pieces for 1 minute per side or until golden brown. Top eggs with salsa and feta cheese. Serve with toasted bread rounds.



  • Substitute feta cheese with goat cheese.
  • Try preparing this recipe with whole wheat, white or egg bread.
