A creative take on egg in a hole - a real winner!


  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 1 cup vegetables (e.g. spinach, onion, mushroom, capsicum), finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cooked lentils, drained
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • pepper
  • 2 slices wholegrain bread
  • parsley, chopped, to serve
  • 2 grilled tomatoes, to serve


  1. Lightly spray the BBQ cooking plate with oil and preheat.
  2. Cook the finely chopped vegetables for 3-5 minutes or until tender.
  3. Remove the vegetables and place into a medium sized bowl. Leave to cool for 3 minutes. Add the lentils, egg and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Using an egg ring, cut a hole in each slice of bread. Place bread on the cooking plate. Pour the egg mixture into the holes of the bread. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until mixture begins to firm. Turn bread over carefully and cook for another 2 minutes.
