Toad in a hole is one of the first recipes I had my children prepare when they were learning to cook. My "little ones" are now grown (and have advanced to more difficult recipes!), but this continues to be a traditional standby in my home and theirs. —Ruth Lechleiter, Breckenridge, Minnesota

"As lovely as this is for a nice kid friendly, quick meal, Its not called a 'toad in the hole' as this recipe states.

(For anyone interested toad in the hole is sausages in a giant Yorkshire pudding)"

"My mother used to make these when I was a kid. She called them a One Eyed. I loved them and still do at 58 yrs old."

"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..."

"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."

"I have always called it Bird's Nest. Keep the round, which is cut out by using a drinking glass, then butter in the skillet, add the egg and place a few slices of cooked ham in the skillet. When you flip over the bread witrh egg, add the heated up ham and place a slice of American cheese on it, continue to heat until cheese is melted. Make sure you flip the cutout too. More toast to dip the egg yolk with. Enjoy."
