Toad in a Hole


My daughter couldn’t wait for me to share this with you. This is her favorite lunch to make right now. I think because it is so simple and she can easily make it herself. She does NOT like the smell of meat cooking or cold sandwiches so to her this is a great compromise.

She can have it plain or sprinkle any number of cheeses over the top after she has flipped it over to give it an entirely new flavor.

Many people call this different things but to us it is Toad in a Hole.

Verdict:

This is super simple and can be customized as you like. When my daughter can make dinner for us in about 15-20 minutes? I love it!

Serve with a nice fruit salad to complete the meal.

recipe title=”Toad in a Hole” servings=”4″ time=”15 minutes” difficulty=”easy”]

Ingredients:

  • 4 – 8 large eggs
  • 4 slices of thick cut bread, Italian or French work great
  • Butter
  • Cheese, salsa, etc… as desired

Directions:

  1. Place griddle or large fry pan on medium heat.
  2. Cut a hole in the center of the bread. Butter one side of the bread and lay flat on your griddle
  3. Break 1 or 2 eggs into the hole in the bread. If your hole is large enough or your bread is thick you may want to use 2 eggs.
  4. Butter second side of bread. When first side is browned and egg is set flip bread over to toast second side.
  5. If you wish sprinkle with cheese and cover with skillet lid to melt.
  6. Serve hot with choice of toppings or plain.

    Sounds lovely! In the UK Toad in the hole is batter mix (Yorkshire pudding) with sausages set within. Delicious!

          Pretty much. She has said when she is on her own age will probably be vegetarian. She has never really cared much for meat since she was a baby.

            That is really interesting. Looking at the bigger picture I wonder where her path leads her. This is really intriguing.

  4. We’ve been known to make this for dinner when we are both pooped and out of ideas! One of our faves! We also griddle the “holes” that are cut out to dip into the egg yolk. πŸ™‚

    I saw this post last Friday and it brought a big smile to my face because my dad used to make this for me on Saturday mornings when I was a kid. So – Friday night we went to a fancy, expensive restaurant for my mom-in-law’s birthday and guess what they had on the menu for a starter? You guessed it! Only their version was pretty dressed up – as you can imagine! I’m toying with the idea of doing a copy cat version! I’ll let you know if I do πŸ™‚
