Toad-in-the-Hole - 1/19/2008

I made breakfast yesterday morning and decided to share my mom's "secret recipe." Don't start drooling yet because it is very simple, but still quite enjoyable.


These creations go by many names: Toad-in-the-Hole, Eggs in a Basket, Eggy in a Toasty, Birds in a Nest. You can see them in the movie "V for Vendetta." All you have to do is cut out some holes (any shape you want) with a cookie or biscuit cutter. Butter the remaining piece of bread and the cutout and put them in a hot pan. Add an egg to the hole in each piece of bread. Cook until it is flippable, then flip and finish cooking. Be sure not to overcook them so you can dip in to the runny yolk with your bread cutout. It may not be anything fancy, but it is a recipe that always reminds me of breakfast at home.
