Reviews forToad in the Hole
"So easy and so good. My only regret is I waited so long to try this. Delicious. I added the cutout circle to the pan and ate it along with the rest. I highly recommend this recipe!Volunteer Field Editor"
"My Mom always called this "Toad in the Hole." C'mon folks...this is so cute, so fun...what's in a name? "A rose by any other name would smells as sweet." And, so it with "Toad in the Hole," "Ginny Eggs," "Spit in the Ocean," Bird's Nest," etc. I just call it "Delicious!" :)"
"how do you keep yolk from breaking?"
""Egg in a nest" is what we call it. We make it in cast iron skillet when camping. Indeed we always toasted the middle also. I scramble the egg for those who prefer it to fried."
"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."
"My mom always called this a Spit In The Ocean. Going to make one right now."
"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."
