This is one of the many dishes I’ve been making for years that’s never graced The Rose Table because I never think to take pictures of it. A dish by many names, Frog in a Hole is fried eggs cooked inside cute little toast packages.
This takes less than five minutes to throw together. I eat it often when I have bread to eat up. You want fairly thin bread slices since the eggs only take a few minutes to cook. And for heaven’s sake, don’t overcook the eggs! You want set egg whites but runny yolk. That’s breakfast perfection.
Frog in a Hole
1 Tbsp butter
2 slices of bread
Sea salt, black pepper
- Use a glass to cut rounds out of the center of each bread slice. Crack eggs into measuring cups.
- Heat butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
- When butter is bubbling, set bread slices in skillet. Fry for one minute then pour egg into each round. Fry for 1-2 minutes until egg white is set but yolks are still runny.
- Carefully flip the bread slices and fry for one more minute. You want the yolks to still be runny! Transfer to a plate and enjoy. Don’t forget to toast the rounds in the skillet too! You’ll want the rounds to sop up all of that perfectly cooked egg . Delicious served with bacon and fruit!
