Spiced Bread Egg in a Hole

1 large egg
1 1/2-inch-thick slice bread, sourdough or rustic
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
Pinch of ground cayenne pepper
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Crack the egg into a small bowl or container with a spout. Using a glass or measuring cup, cut out a circle in the middle of the bread, being sure to leave at least a 1/2-inch of bread on all sides.
In a medium nonstick skillet, use a wooden spoon to stir together the oil, turmeric, coriander, cayenne and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the bread and its middle and heat the skillet over medium heat. When the bread starts to sizzle, gently pour the egg into the hole. Cook until the bottom of the bread is crispy, about 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, gently flip the bread and continue cooking until the egg white is cooked through but the yolk is still runny, another 2 minutes. Serve.
