Egg in a basket/toad in a hole

I like comfort food. It doesn’t matter if they are not healthy. Comfort food makes me feel happy and good. And I like feeling happy and good-such emotions makes me feel healthy. Quite a twisted logic, eh?

Anyway, here’s one of my favourite comfort food. One of a must have in the morning during breakfast, or when I’m pretty hungry and in desperate need of a quick bite. Egg in a basket. Some people might recognize this dish as toad in a hole.

Here’s how you make egg in a basket/toad in a hole:

Make a hole by cutting a circular hole in the center of a piece of bread with a cookie cutter or an upside down glass.

Spread both side of the bread with margarine/butter generously.

Fry both side of the bread slightly on the frying pan.

Crack in an egg into the hole when the bread is slightly crunchier, and cook for a while until the bottom part of the egg hardens before flipping the bread over and cook the bread and the egg to a desired consistency.

And this is what you’ll get. One toad in the hole πŸ˜€ Take out, and serve with either jam, ketchup or even cheese.

Cleffairy: I’ll have this kind of toad anytime of the day.

    very special! first, i wonder why u make a holes ??? so funny.

    but this is good. have you apply for trademark? heheehe

    one things is it looks a bit dark brown and oily. if less dark and less oil… it is perfect.

    • Cleffairy says:

      Eh? Cannot apply trademark la… haha…. this is a traditional English breakfast dish…dono who created this.

      The hole is made to ‘hold’ the egg, and so that the egg white and egg yolk ‘sticks’ to the bread nicely.

      LOL… I like my food abit burn wan… that’s why it looks like that. Plus, I used whole wheat bread… not regular bread. Originally oredi very brown.
