Although the holiday season may look different this year, there are still plenty of ways to make lasting memories—especially in the kitchen. Whether it's embracing a new tradition like a "charcuter-tree" or trying a viral trend like hot cocoa bombs, it's easy to make the holidays feel special. And one meal that's getting a festive upgrade? Breakfast.

In a recent Instagram post, Diane Morrisey shared a seasonal twist on eggs in a hole. In this holiday twist, Morrisey uses cookie cutters to create bell-, tree- and star-shaped holes in the toast. She then fills the cutouts with eggs to create a filling and jolly meal.

These adorable toasts would be the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning. Plus, your kids could easily help with this project by cutting out the shapes from the toast (P.S. this cookie cutter set from Amazon has all the holiday shapes you'll need, buy it: $16). 

Get Morrisey's recipe below and check out our other Christmas breakfast ideas that will bring plenty of holiday cheer. 

Christmas Eggs in a Hole


  • 6 pieces of sliced bread
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter for pan


  1. Use Christmas cookie cutters to cut out shapes from bread.
  2. In a bowl, whisk eggs, cheese, milk, parsley and chives. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add 2 or 3 slices at a time and cook until the bottoms are golden. Reduce heat to low then flip bread slices. Pour egg mixture into each cutout shape. Cover skillet and cook until the egg is set, another 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and repeat with remaining bread, adding more butter as necessary. Serve with hot sauce or ketchup.
