We had an unexpected snowstorm in Israel and we are all stuck in the house. I thought this would be fun to make for the kids for lunch. Similar to Moonstruck Eggs by Heather Feather, but much cuter with the hats! Needless to say, my kids thought these were adorable and gobbled them right up!
This turned out really good! I've tried making something like it before. The step of covering the skillet for a few minutes made a difference. One tip: do avoid overcooking use the smaller burner on your stovetop. Also,I used a butter spray instead and saved quite a bit on calories. Next time, I think I'll try using a cookie cutter shape especially with Easter coming around the corner I think a bunny will create a little more intrigue and excitement from my children.
This was adorable! I added a slice of salami and provolone cheese to top off my egg hats. Cute, thanks for posting!
This is great as french toast also. We've always called them frog-eye toast.
My family loves eggs and this gave us a change of pace from the usual egg recipes. It's simple to make and kids and adults like it. The first 2 times that I made it I covered the pan and the eggs were overcooked before the toast was browned. Perhaps because I used a teflon pan. The third time I put the bread in the pan about a minute before the eggs and then it came out perfect and delicious !
It was fun to make this!! :D I tweaked it a bit.. I French toasted the bread before carving the hole in it and adding the egg inside.. and also once done.. for the bread hat of the recipe..i sprinkled lil powdered sugar and cinnamon on top of it before placing it over the egg .. :D! It was Ammmaaazzing!! thank you. <3
I made this this morning for the DM's breakfast and she thoroughly enjoyed. I made just the one using wholemeal/wholegrain bread and toasted one side first and then cut the circle out and buttered the untoasted side and put that in the hot frypan and slipped the egg into the hole and then put a lid on the frypan and cooked until the egg was set and the yolk still soft, toasted the other side of the circle and served that for dipping into the yolk. Thank you Sheri-BDB, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
I love these too !!! I knew them as " toad in a hole " when I was a kid. Sometimes toasting the bread a little before hand works too.
We call that toad in the hole. And it is good.
I have even ordered this in a restaurant.
