Toad in the Hole on a Chilly Morning

It’s a beautiful morning, the sun is shining, the snow is sparkling, and it’s a balmy -5 degrees out (with a wind-chill of -23)! A great breakfast is the perfect fit for this beautiful morning.  When I wake up, I am usually starving, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen making myself a meal for one, but I get sick of bowls of cereal and oatmeal pretty fast.

Therefore, one of my go-to meals is a simple Toad in the Hole.  Now there are several different names for this meal, Toad in the Hole, Eggs in a Basket, Egg in the Hole, and so on… I grew up with this as a favorite meal and have always called in Toad in the Hole, I was completely blown away when I first heard it called something else!

This is such a simple meal to make if you are cooking for one.  It can easily feed a crowd too! This quick meal will fill your up and the protein will give the fuel needed for a busy day.  Whatever life brings you, a good breakfast is a great way to kick start a good day!


Butter (I used Land-O-Lakes Light Spreadable Butter this time)

Bread 1 Slice (I prefer some homemade whole wheat!)

Egg (1 large, or two egg whites)


  1. Directions:

    1. While heating up a skillet, cut a hole the size of a nickel in the bread.

    2. Butter both sides of the bread (and the hole piece you cut out too!)

    3. Place the bread in the skillet and brown one side (do the same with the hole you cut out, this is an extra treat!)

    4. One the bread is browned on one side, flip it over.

    5. Crack an egg over the bread, allowing the yoke to go into the hole.

    6. Put on the skillet lid to let the egg steam.

    7. Let it cook until the egg is cooked through, and the bottom of the bread is toasted.

    8. Then place it on a plate for a delicious meal. A slice of ham and fruit go great with a Toad in the Hole and add a little more nutrition to your meal!

Have an amazing day and enjoy!
