Toad in a Hole

aka - Eggs in a Basket


This simple breakfast is a favorite of ours. At a recent gathering, I was surprised to find out how many had never had this delicious treat. It is so simple to make - as easy as frying an egg!

Heat a seasoned iron skillet over medium heat and melt a Tbs. butter inside. When the butter starts to turn brown and nutty, cut a hole in a piece of bread with a biscuit cutter or just freehand it with a knife. Lay the bread in the skillet and crack an egg into the hole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. When the bottom has set and begins to brown, flip it over. I like mine a little bit runny, so I cook them over-easy, but you can make you egg as well-done as you like it.

Cook your toast circles on the side and dip them in the runny egg. Mmmmm...

This dish goes by many names. What do you call it in your family?
