I can’t speak for the rest of you, but for my Chelsea, there are a handful of dishes that are “go-to” when a culinary hug is in order.

Pasta (white, not wheat, please) with butter and lots of grated cheese.

A big bowl of ice cream with a TON of sprinkles.

And egg-in-a-hole – which is like love on a plate. It’s warm, filling and delicious. It’s breakfast, lunch, dinner and “feel better.”


  • olive oil
  • shredded cheese (pick your favorite; we like cheddar)
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Using a juice glass or cookie cutter, cut out the centers of the bread slices, reserving the cut-outs.
  2. When the skillet is hot, pour in enough oil to coat the bottom evenly (tilt to distribute if necessary). Place the bread slices in the center, and the cut-outs alongside. Crack one egg and carefully pour it into the center of one of the bread slices. Repeat with the second egg. Cook, undisturbed, for three minutes.
  3. Using a spatula, turn over the bread slices and cut-outs. Sprinkle liberally with cheese; season with salt and pepper. Cook for three minutes.
  4. Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
