So this morning I was in the mood for pancakes. But I heard sunny side up eggs calling my name too, so the only thing to do was to make Eggs in a Hole Pancakes. Takes a little bit of practice but after a couple of tries I got it right. I even drizzled syrup over the top! Yum.
Eggs in a Hole Pancakes
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cooking oil
3 cups Pancake mix, prepared as directed
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Crack one egg into a small bowl and set aside.
Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil and butter. Add about ⅓-1/2 cup of the batter to the pan. I like to make these one at a time but you can do more if you want.
When bubbles begin to form on top, carefully flip the pancake over and cook for less than a minute on the other side…until lightly golden but not done.
Immediately after flipping, use a glass or a cookie cutter or a knife to cut a circle out of the center of the pancake. Carefully pour the egg from the bowl into the hole and season with salt and pepper.
Cover skillet for 1 to 2 minutes, until the whites have set. Slide onto a plate, egg side up, and serve with maple syrup.
