Eggs in a Hole

Eggs in a Hole with Veggies
As a little girl I loved when my mum made us an egg in a hole.
In my eyes, of a kid, it always seems to me like there is a surprise inside the bread, and more then that you just need to slice with the knife and fork and eat it, which make it easier on kids, or people who just don't like to mess around with their food too much.
For 2 people -
2 slices of a good healthy nourishing bread
(whole wheat/ gluten free/ rye/ etc)
2 organic free range eggs
In the 2 slices of bread, make a hole in the middle of the slice. You can use a cookie cutter or an esspresso cup (or your fingers if your hole making technic is a winner).
Keep the bread rounds aside for later.
Heat a pan (preferred non stick, if you don’t have a non stick you can use a bit of water and cover so you create a steaming process, its a great trick to avoid oil using. but if you must use oil, use a healthy plant based oil spray and spray a thin layer on the pan).
Place the bread with the holes on the pan, and flip them to the other side after 1 minute.
Gently, break an egg inside each hole, and cook over low heat until the eggs are tender.
Then place the bread round you kept on top of the egg and cook for 1-2 minutes more until the bread round sticks to the egg.
Use a spatula to gently flip the bread with the eggs to the other side.
Cover the pan and cook until the eggs are perfect as you like them
*If you like your eggs a bit more runny you can skip the part of flipping and serve immediately
You can add green leaves on top and let them steam.
