Eggs in a Hole

This recipe comes from our own Tony Vrondissis.

He says of it: I cooked this dish recently it’s delicious, healthy, hearty, and the ingredients are readily available and affordable.

Eggs in a Hole is a dish with roots in Greek cuisine and the recipe here is adapted from Diane Kochilas (if you want to see the original recipe check it out here)

Tony finished off this recipe with 2 oz of crumbled feta sprinkled over the top.
