Also known as "Egg in the Window". This is easy and delicious. I used it make this all the time at college. Kids love it too. It is easy to make and tough to mess up.



Using a small cookie cutter, cut a hole in each piece of bread. Then lightly butter both sides of the bread. Then place the bread in a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Once the bread has browned a little turn it over, then fill each hole with an egg. Once the egg has cooked halfway through, flip the bread. You can have your eggs runny or cook them all the way through. Also, apply a little butter to the holes that you cut out of the bread and cook those too. Tabasco or pepper to taste!


Note: Depending on the size of your frying pan you may have to cook two at a time.

Depending on size of family, you'll need:



First, break some eggs into a flat bowl or small casserole dish, add a little milk and add a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg. Beat the egg mixture to blend all. Pre-Heat 1 or 2 frypans on stove, med.-low heat, and melt oil or butter.

Dip the holed out, slices of bread in egg mixture, both sides and carefully lay in frypans. Crack a fresh egg into the hole of the bread in frypans; salt and pepper if desired. When the underside is browned to your liking, carefully flip the holed out slices of bread to finish cooking on other side.


If you like your eggs set, leave them in 2 - 3 minutes longer. I like them just when the "French Toast" is golden brown. Also, please, don't forget to dip the centers that you cut out, into the egg mixture and fry them too.

Place your "Toad in the Hole French Toast" on plates or keep warm in low oven till you're done.

Serve them with crispy bacon or breakfast sausage, drizzle your favourite syrup on all and enjoy your mornin' feast! I even make this for our supper every now and then, the wife loves them.

Note: there are no "serving amounts", cause it depends on the size of your family.

This is a super newsletter" keep up the good work!

In the past, my husband didn't like eggs for breakfast without some bacon to go with it. Now that we have stopped eating bacon, he has found that he loves egg on toast with melted cheese on top. When I first started making it, I burned the toast but he ate it anyway. I have worked on my timing to get this to turn out just right for him.


I like egg sandwiches so, before I contaminate the frying pan with his bread, I quickly fry a couple of eggs and toast my gluten free bread and make my sandwich. This needs to cool a little which works out great for me as it's just right to eat when I finish with his egg on toast.

Total Time: only a few minutes

Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of bread
  • Butter Pam
  • 1 pat of butter
  • grated cheese
  • salt and pepper as desired


  1. Cut a hole in the bread large enough to hold the egg yolk.

  3. Spray pan with Butter Pam. Place a pat of butter in the frying pan and heat on medium.
  4. When the butter is hot, place bread and the cut out piece in the pan. Drop an egg in the hole.
  5. Using a fork, break the yolk and spread the egg around on the top of the bread. Add salt and pepper.
  6. Check the cut out piece and see if it has browned. If so, it's time to flip the egg on toast over.

  8. Sprinkle some grated cheese on top.
  9. Turn burner off. Place a lid on the pan. Let it sit on the hot burner until the cheese is melted. Approximately 1 minute.
  10. Serve immediately.

Always look to make sure you opened the right side of the pepper before putting it on your egg. This lesson was learned the hard way.

too much pepper
