  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
  2. Using a glass or cookie cutter, create a hole in the middle of the bread, removing the center so it is perfectly circular. Butter the bread lightly on both sides and lightly fry it on one side, and then turn it over. Crack the egg into the hole in the middle of the bread and fry quickly. Be careful that the bread does not burn. Serve warm.

This was made for my sister and I when we were little, only we called it "Toad in the Hole". I made this today for my boys, just to make today a little easier. I used a star cookie cutter and after the egg cooked a little, I put a little shredded cheese on the egg before flipping. I like mine with hot sauce and sometimes salsa to dip. My boys LOVED these, and asked for seconds! Thanks for posting this recipe. It's nice to share these recipes I had as a kid with my boys.


We call it egg-in-a-hole, and I have perfected the art! First, it helps to cook on a low heat and cover with a lid to cook the egg without burning the bread. Also, I sprinkle salt pepper and Season-all on the raw egg side. Second, after you flip the bread to cook the other side, sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on the cooked side and cover again and allow cheese to melt while the other side cooks. Hope you love the suggestions!

We call this a Nest Egg. Love it! Over easy is best achieved if you add a splash of water (1 or 2 tablespoons) to the pan once you crack the egg and the pan is hot, then cover it. The steam cooks the whites of the egg quickly which makes it easier to turn, and the water cooks off so no soggy bread, and no broken yolks!
