Dragon’s Eye

When I was a little girl, my mom would sometimes make me a “Dragon’s Eye” for breakfast. I’ve also heard it called, “Egg in a Hole” and “Egg in a Basket”. Whatever you call it, it’s a fun way to eat an egg and a piece of toast and very easy to make!

Dragon’s Eye


slice of bread
oil or butter


Heat oil or butter in the pan. Cut a hole in the center of the bread (I used a champagne flute).


Lightly fry the bread and the circle.
Flip over and crack the egg in the hole. Cook until done.

I like my yolk slightly runny and the toasted circle is perfect for dipping!

Did you ever have this for breakfast? What did you call it?

  1. That looks so good!
    I’ve always called them eggs in a basket but my yolk always breaks and I end up making french toast instead >.<
    Kudos on your Dragon's eye perfection!
