Reviews for Toad in the Hole
"My mom always called this a Spit In The Ocean. Going to make one right now."
"Your recipe says to discard the ring of bread cut from the slice. Waste not, want not. Toast the circle of bread in the same pan with the Toad in the Hole.I have been preparing this dish for many, many years and taught my children how to prepare this at an early age. They still enjoy Toad in the Hole.My 4 star review is based on discarding the center of the bread.A 5 star rating goes out to the dish itself."
"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."
