teens in rehab make egg in a hole

Teens in Rehab serve up a delicious breakfast!

Once again our teens in rehab at Inspirations for Youth and Families (IYF) learned a new and hearty recipe as a part of our Nutritional and Life Skills course. Through this course our teens in rehab have been taught how to cook the following items for themselves beansoup, smoothies, baked apples and even cookies!

Our teens this time around were taught how to make the delicious Egg in a Hole! This breakfast provides a lot of protein and fiber. Not only does this meal pack a balanced meal it also very sustainable and will keep your teens fully energized throughout the day.

Why Egg in a Hole is a healthy choice:

Eggs provide a very good source of protein especially from the egg whites. Egg yolk also offers B2 vitamins and is great for lowering cholesterol. Bread is a grain that is packed with fiber which has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and regulating the bowel system. All these nutritional benefits are packed into one easy to make and tasty dish.

Try our Egg in a Hole recipe here:

Step 1: Cut a round hole in the center of a slice of bread with a biscuit or cookie cutter. (You can even use the rim of a small glass.)

Step 2: Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the bread and cook until it’s toasted. Flip, adding more butter to the pan.

Step 3: Crack an egg on a flat surface (for a cleaner break). Drop the egg gently in the hole. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until set but still soft. Serve warm.
