This recipe did not work for me. I found it impossible to cook the egg enough so that it was safe to give to a childz. You can't flip it because of the cheese so the egg never fully cooks on the other side. I tried again turning down the heat but again the bread burns before the egg even comes close to being fully cooked. The third time I tried this I left off the cheese and just added the egg so that I could flip it and have a fully cooked egg. Read More

Awww memories... We called these Bullseye & 1 eyed jack. Gosh soo many names for this recipe. Hole in one, egg boat just to name a few.... Haven't tried the cheese. I always butter both sides of bread & fry for 1 minute on each side then add the egg to the hole & cook for about 3 minutes & turn it over. Add salt & pepper..... Really good & kids can make this.

I tried this because it reminded me that my dad would butter and fry bread when I was young and we were on camping trips. I buttered both sides of the bread then cut out the circle. Put the egg in the hole and salted and peppered some. Because I don't like my eggs runny I covered the pan with a lid to help cook the top of the egg some. After the bottom was browned I flipped the bread over placed the cheese on top and covered the pan again to help melt the cheese. It wasn't bad at all! The crispy fried bread really is what makes it taste better than just egg and toast. Read More

This is a great recipe but be sure to put bread in skillet then crack the egg into the hole IMMEDATELY after puting bread in skillet. Do not cook bread AT ALL before adding the egg you will have a burnt toad in the hole! Read More

Delicious! I cut this down to one serving for breakfast and waited until the egg was cooked before adding the cheese. Great with a side of Canadian bacon and OJ! Read More

This is a good recipe (I made them this morning for brunch) but it is not a classic Toad-in-a-hole which is comprised of sausages quickly browned in a skillet covered with Yorkshire pudding batter and finished in the oven. Read More
