Egg in a hole christmas-style! The perfect easy christmas morning breakfast your kids will love from

Egg in a Hole is something we eat quite often in our family, since it is so easy to make and delicious to eat. This christmas tree version though, is something new I tried and Arik absolutely loved it. He almost wanted to just keep the tree and not eat it…almost! 🙂


We will definitely be having this breakfast again on Christmas morning. This way no-one (aka me) has to spend the morning in the kitchen whipping up something fancy, yet we still get to have a festive breakfast. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas filled with lots of family, fun and food and I will see you all next year!! Muaah!

Christmas Tree Egg Nest
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1
  • Butter for the pan
  • 1 piece of bread; I used whole-wheat
  • 1 egg
  • bell pepper for garnish
  1. Place a pan over medium heat and add some butter.
  2. While the butter is melting, take a slice of bread and use a christmas tree cookie cutter to cut out a hole in the center of the bread.
  3. Place the bread in the hot pan, break the egg into the hole, cover and allow to cook for a few minutes. Be sure to also cook the cut-out piece of toast (the tree) on the side.
  4. Once the egg has set enough, flip the bread and cook for about 30-60 seconds more, depending on how done you want your egg.
  5. While the egg is cooking, cut out a star and some strips using a yellow and a red bell pepper.
  6. Place the bread and egg onto a plate and garnish with the bell pepper and serve with your cut-out piece of tree toast as a dipper.

  1. My husband and I have this breakfast all the time too and love it! I’m with Arik…but I save the cut out for last because it’s my favorite part. I love the holiday cutout. I’ll have to remember to do that for Valentine’s day, using a heart shape. Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!
