French Toast Eggs in a Hole

Golden French toast sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon and topped with perfectly cooked eggs baked right in the middle.


  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 slice of toast, the thicker the better
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil
  • Maple syrup to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon together on a plate, set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Take one of the eggs and whisk it in a medium bowl with the milk and salt.
  • Quickly dip the bread into the egg mixture and let the excess drip off. You don't it to seep through the toast.
  • Use a shot glass (or something of similar size) to cut a hole in the middle of each piece of bread. Save the middle.
  • Place on the skillet and cook on each side for a few minutes until golden brown.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Remove the bread from the skillet and toss them on the plate with the sugar to coat.
  • Place on a baking pan lightly coated with vegetable oil.
  • Crack the 2 remaining eggs on a flat surface and drop in the middle of each hole (the flat surface prevents the shell from being pushed inside.)
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the egg whites have firmed.
  • Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
