  • 4 waffles Eggo Nutri grain
  • 2 tablespoons butter unsalted and divided between all waffles
  • 4 eggs large
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt pink Himalayan
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 1/2 cup Pico De Gallo homemade or store-bought

  1. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  6. Uncover the skillet, season the eggs with salt and pepper. Serve right away with toppings.

Recipe Notes

Start with quality waffles such as Eggo Nutri Grain. Use a 1.5 inch to 2 inch cookie cutter, any shape works. Make sure you use large eggs, not bigger since the eggs in a hole are supposed to fit exactly in to the center of the waffles. Cover the skillet as soon as you put the eggs in the center so that they start to cook without browning the waffle bottoms too much. Keep an eye on the eggs because everyone likes them differently. Use the cut out waffle centers to scoop up jam! Remember to toast them first in a toaster. Serve the eggs in a hole right away with different toppings. You can rewarm the eggs in a hole in the oven, but keep in mind the eggs will continue cooking.
