Rhode Island Red Toast

Egg-in-a-hole toast, or what I've always called Rhode Island Red Toast, is a simple and easy vegetarian breakfast that can be made in minutes!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1 Slice Whole Grain Bread
  • 1 Large Pasture-Raised Egg
  • Olive Oil for cooking
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Red Pepper Flakes to taste


  1. To start, take a small glass or cookie cutter and cut a hole in the center of your bread.

  2. Then, bring a nonstick frying pan to medium low heat. Add in a small drizzle of olive oil and wait until the oil is heated.

  3. Once the oil is hot, add in the slice of bread and cook until toasted on one side.

  4. Then, flip over the toast and reduce the heat slightly. Crack an egg into the hole and cook, covered, until the whites are just set.

  5. Once the whites are set, remove the toast from the pan with a spatula. Season the egg with a pinch each of sea salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.

  6. Serve with greens, if you'd like, or slices of avocado.

  7. Enjoy!
