The incredible egg

Table Talk



‘Egg in a hole’


1 slice of whole wheat bread

1 tablespoon of margarine or butter

1 egg


Butter both sides of the bread, then cut a hole in the center of the bread with a biscuit cutter or jar lid or whatever you have on hand that would make the proper size hole without cutting the curst.

Place in a hot skillet that has been sprayed with oil. Crack a raw egg and place in center. Also don't forget the bread you cut out. Place that also in skillet to brown on both sides. After the egg has set, flip over on the other side to  cook and brown bread. You may have to practice this dish a couple of times but you will love it once you get it mastered. A local business in Richmond and Berea has this on their menu. They use sour dough bread and this really sets off a good taste.

How does one know when the eggs are done? I found a device at a kitchen store in Lexington that you place in the pan with the eggs. It is the shape of an oval egg and red in color but when the eggs are done, it turns purple. Works every time.

How do you get the peeling off fast? One way is to stop the cooking process as soon as possible with cold water. One friend of mine shakes them in the pan to crack them really well and then removes the shell.

I like to keep them cooked and placed in their shell in a carton in the refrigerator for a snack. It is a good source of protein and such an easy snack to have on hand.

  • Bee on the lookout as beekeepers convene

    Summer vacation season is in full swing, and I had the pleasure of spending the last week and a half filling in at the Farm Store while the store manager, Bethany Pratt, got a welcome respite soaking up the beauty of Ireland.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

  • Brandon-Sears-c.jpg Converting from year-round calving to a controlled breeding season

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello everyone.
    I guess everyone is asking, “How much rain did we get?”

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
