Snow Day Power Breakfast

Well, after the East Coast got a massive Snowmageddon last week, it was only a matter of time before my laughing at their misfortune (I admit, Shadenfreude is my favorite German word) would prompt something similar to happen to Iowa.



It's a bit unfortunate, actually. My cousin's wife drove down to her hometown last week to visit her sick grandfather, but now she can't make it back home to her hubby. It's a long enough drive for her, as it is.

We didn't have church this morning, so while my mom relishes extra sleep, my dad, sister, and I are catching up on the first half of Agents of SHIELD season 2. There'll be some driveway scooping here in the nearish future, so I'm trying to fuel up for it.

Eggs in a Frame will ALWAYS be one of my favorite breakfasts. And you can even make it semi-healthy by the type of bread you use, and make sure to use REAL butter, and NOT margarine. Ants won't even touch margarine, so you really shouldn't, either. Grass-fed is best, but butter is still better than margarine.

Power House Egg in a Frame

  • 1 Slice 9 Grain Bread
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1/2 Avocado, sliced
  1. Heat and prep a skillet with nonstick spray (I've tried to make this in a cast-iron skillet, but the eggs always stick).
  2. Butter both sides of the bread, and cut a circle out of the middle, using a glass. Add the main piece of bread with the hole to the hot pan, and immediately crack the egg into the hole.
  3. Cook for about 2-3 minutes before flipping, and cook an additional 2-3 minutes (Mine was a bit burned this morning).
  4. Add the middle circle you cut out, and cook both sides until golden (this goes faster than the other piece of bread).
  5. Place on a plate and top with the sliced avocado. 
Protein, Carb, AND a healthy fat. YUM!

  1. Yum, I'll take anything with avocado on it! We were supposed to get a huge super blizzard here in CT, but it was definitely not even close. Though they are predicting more snow for tomorrow, so I guess there's that to look forward to :(

    1. We tried to scoop the driveway, but it kept snowing on us, so hopefully someone comes to scoop us out tonight or tomorrow (everything is cancelled tomorrow, anyway, but still). I'm gonna get cabin fever! :-)

    1. Hope you enjoyed it. Egg in a frame (or Egg in the Hole) has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. Love! And I actually live in the midwest, near Omaha, but it's still absolutely ridiculous. I'm ready and willing to move south! :-)

    1. Me too. I usually only have time to cook them on weekends, though.
