Breakfast, Your Health, and a Recipe to Share: Egg In A Hole Toast

Hello!!! Hope you all are having a great day. I’m sure you’ve heard or read that breakfast is the most important meal of the day…

Here are some facts I pulled from

Not only does breakfast give you energy to start a new day, but it’s linked to many health benefits, including weight control and improved performance.

Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast (as opposed to the kind containing doughnuts) can help give you:

  • A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals
  • Improved concentration and performance in the classroom or the boardroom
  • More strength and endurance to engage in physical activity
  • Lower cholesterol levels

Eating breakfast is important for everyone, but is especially so for children and adolescents. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination.

So, here’s my easy, eat almost every single day of my life breakfast.


  • 1 slice of your favorite bread
  • 1 egg
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Hot sauce

Use a drinking glass to cut out your hole in the bread.

Spray a skillet with cooking spray, place the bread and cut out center in the skillet and turn burner to medium heat.

Break the egg into the hole in the bread. Season with salt and pepper (a little salt and a bit more pepper).

Depending on how you like your egg cooked – for medium, cook for about 2 minutes on each side – for over easy, let the whites set, flip and in about 30 seconds you’re done – for hard, cook until the yellow doesn’t run when poked.

Squirt some hot sauce over the top (I like Sriracha) and enjoy.

Grab an apple or banana or yogurt to round it off.  If you’re running late, at least grab some fruit or yogurt – put something in your tummy, it hasn’t had anything since the night before!
