Reviews forToad in the Hole
"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."
"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."
"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."
