"This is a great recipe for kids. To make it even more kid-friendly, have them prepare it in a microwave. Just place the egg in the center of the toast. With a toothpick, poke the yolk two times and the egg white four times so the egg won't explode. Place the plate in the microwave and cover. Microwave at 70% power for about 90 seconds. Let stand, covered for 1 minute. Serve."
"This is a camping favorite...I like to use a <3 cookie cutter to make the hole, & toast the "hole" on the side. Plus I throw 2 eggs on each rather than eating the carbs of 2 pieces of bread. Cracker Barrel calls it "Eggs in the basket" I think..."
"Love this recipe but its not toad in the hole."
"I recently introduced my husband to this classic, made for me as a kid by my Aunt Debby. He's crazy about it! He suggested adding a cinnamon sugar mixture before cooking and it's delicious. Also, NEVER discard the center!"
"Grew up having this & my daughter has loved it since she was small - but you never discard the hole you cut out! That's the best part, all buttery crisp & toasty. My daughter considers it a treat when she comes to visit & I cook this for her. Lots of good memories."
