feta fried egg-in-a-hole cooking in a skillet


  • 1 slice sandwich bread
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • feta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • freshly-ground black pepper
  • red pepper flakes


  • Cut out the center from a piece of sandwich bread with a mason jar lid, biscuit cutter, or cookie cutter (feel free to have fun with shapes!)
  • Melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Toast the bread and cut-out, then flip both. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Crumble in enough feta to fill the hole (a block of full-fat feta works best), then crack in the egg. Season with black pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook 1 minute; transfer the cut-out to a plate.
  • Working quickly and confidently, flip the bread and egg. Cook 30 seconds more for a runny yolk, longer for a firm one. Transfer to the plate, slice in half, and have fun dipping the cut-out into the yolk ☀️
