I always thought Toad in the Hole was an egg cracked into a slice of bread and then fried. Turns out I’m wrong. (Thank you for the correction wikipedia) Apparently Toad in the Hole involves a sausage and instead my fried egg is called Egg in a Basket. I’m not sure that’s got quite the same ring to it, but it will have to do until I think of something else. I always liked the sounds of Toad in the Hole… makes me think of Wind in the Willows.
What you’ll need is some
small round bread rolls and
free range eggs
hollow them out, enough to hold a whole cracked egg
into a low oven (they are a good thing to pop in on your second shelf of the oven while something else is cooking up top)
eat them when you think they are ready
and serve with a little capsicum chilli sauce
(For me an egg is ready when it’s cooked right through, Mr Chocolate likes ’em runny.)
As for a new name…any ideas?
Bunnies in Burrows?
Fat Cat on a Cushion?
