Easy, yummy and cheap

I think those are the criteria for what I want to cook lately. : )

Especially as I try to save $$$ on groceries.

I came across this recipe at M*rtha's web site and she has it under a quick and easy category. Normally, she and I don't always agree on what is easy...LOL

This was pretty easy, maybe not super quick if you are feeding 6 but not too time consuming.

I remember making a similar recipe back in G*rl Scouts a million years ago. : )

(multiply ingredients by how many people are in your family)

Scrambled Egg in the Hole

1 large egg

salt and pepper

1 slice of crusty Italian bread (1 inch thick)

1/2 T. butter

1/2 ounce cheddar cheese, grated

In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tsp. cold water, season with salt and pepper. Using the rim of a small glass, cut a hole in the bread. Discard the cut out. (or feed it to whatever kiddo walks by) In a large nonstick skillet, heat butter over medium until foaming. Place bread in skillet; carefully p0ur egg mixture into hole (if egg leaks out of the bread, use a spatula to push it back). Sprinkle egg with cheese. Cook until egg begins to set, 3 or 4 minutes; gently flip bread and egg. Continue cooking until egg is set, 1 or 2 more minutes.

I served it with asparagus and hash browns. It was great!

The kiddos added syrup to it and it was like a fancy french toast kind of a thing. It got a thumbs up from everybody at our table...and that hardly ever happens. : ) -Unless we are having homemade pizza!

Sounds good! We toast the bread and DIP it in the egg!
