…then I highly recommend going the fancy route, which will take you about 90 extra seconds, and that’s this: once your egg in a hole is done to your liking (I like mine soft-set, personally), scoop it out and put it on your plate. Now add a tablespoon of sherry vinegar, a tablespoon of water and a tablespoon of butter to the pan and swirl it all around until the butter is melted and you’ve stirred up some of the delicious little bits and drippings from frying the egg. Now drizzle this over your egg in a hole and toss on some chopped parsley and a little fresh ground pepper.
Take a bite. Now you feel like this…
Yes you do. Fancy egg in a hole – we all need one every once in a while!
