Instead of serving your egg on toast, try serving it in toast. This breakfast classic, also known as Egg in a Saddle, Egyptian Egg, One Eye, and Bird in a Nest, is a long-standing favorite.

I wish I could say that I came up with what may well be the best breakfast sandwich concept ever on my own, but I’d be lying. I first came across the brilliant idea over on Reddit, but awesomeness rarely goes unrepeated when the internet is involved, and I have no shame in admitting that I made this sandwich within an hour after reading about it.

Like the infamous Fatty Melt (that’s a burger made with two grilled cheese sandwiches as a bun, the brainchild of our own Adam Kuban), the Grilled Cheese Eggsplosion is a hybrid sandwich, combining elements from two or more sources into a single glorious dish. In this case, it’s a simple grilled cheese sandwich between two eggs-in-a-hole (or bullseye eggs, eggs-in-a-basket, whatever you want to call it) replacing the plain old bread.

Added bonus: You get to make yourself a mini grilled cheese using the circular cut-outs.



  • 1 slice sourdough, potato, or wheat bread (your favorite)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon parsley


Cut a 2-inch round from the center of the bread, reserving the round. Melt a nut size bit of butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place the slice of bread and the round in skillet and toast lightly, about 1 minute. Crack the egg into the hole and season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add remaining the rest of the butter as needed to brown and crisp the toast. Flip the egg and round, season with salt and pepper. Cook another 2 minutes for a runny yolk, or slightly longer for a set egg.

Transfer egg-in-the-hole to a plate and sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Serve, and use the toasted round for dipping into the yolk.
