Egg-in-the-Hole with Avocado and Tomatoes

When I was a kid I remember “dippy eggs” – My Mom would cut toast into strips and we would dip the toast into an egg that was cooked long enough for the whites to cook through while leaving the yolk runny.  I loved them.  I will always remember calling them “dippy eggs” and laugh as I still call them that.  I’m hoping that my kids will grow up and one day remember the “egg-in-the-hole” (neither of them liked dippy eggs, boooooo!)  and love it still!

These are the eggs in the skillet cooking…  you can make them as runny or as hard as you’d like.  egg in hole cooking

These are so simple – only 5 ingredients!  They make a filling breakfast and are easily adjustable to accommodate your veggie preferences.  I love this recipe and could truly eat these every morning!
