"This is just another way my grandma use to fix eggs for me when I was little. I still eat them this way today."
Serving Size: 1 (89 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"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."
"My parents called this recipe "Hollywood Eggs"."
"My grandmother made a version of this for us every Easter morning. She separated the eggs, whipped the whites, and put them in the hole, making a "nest" for the yoke. Then they went in the oven on a cookie sheet for a little while until the yoke was set on top and the whites were dry like meringue. She called them "Bird's Nests". Yum"
"Love these....we called then egg-in-a-basket when I was a little girl! Easy to make!"
"This was always a hit with my girls. My Mom made it for me when I was little too, we called it "Toad in a hole". The French Canadians called it "Coco cache". When the girls were old enough to use the stove it was an easy meal for them to make for themselves."
"My Grandma made these for me but she named them "one eyed sailors". Thanks for the memory."
"It was delicious, my husband loved it and I was really surprised that it wasn't dry at all. Thank you!"
"Fun and filling breakfast! Thanks"
"We used to eat this at breakfast sometimes as children but we called it toad in a hole and generally it was not just plain white bread but whole grain or something."
"Known by many names (mine was toad in the hole) this has always been a quick fix breakfast. Made for the Easter Egg Hunt 2009."
"Ah...the memories of childhood! :) I have been searching for the trick, as I couldn't quite remember how mom used to make them. I can't wait to use this recipe over and over again. Although I have no children, I'll try some shapes like hearts and other. No need to have children to enjoy this treat!"
