Toad in the hole

I had never heard of 'Toad in a hole' until I met my husband. Frog in a pond - yes...but Toad in a hole? What on earth is that?

Well...toad in a hole is one of those extra yummy - pretty naughty kind of breakfasts. One that is awesomely good if you've had a late night and an extra glass of wine. But equally good on a cold winters morning to get your inner fire started to fuel you through the day.

I am particularly fond of this breakfast delight when I have yummy fresh sourdough bread and organic eggs from my in-laws farm. But of course you can make it with any bread and eggs that you have on hand.
Here's how you do it....

Heat frying pan over medium heat.
Butter both sides of your bread and pop into pan.
Using a round glass or biscuit cutter - cut a hole in the centre of the bread and take out the circular piece of bread and crack in the egg! Its pretty well as simple as that really! Cook one side and then the other and if you like you can add a sprinkle of herb goodness from your garden.

A little crack of pepper and a sprinkle of Maldon Sea Salt and voila! Now its time to tuck in! Yum!

In England toad in the hole is sausages in a yorkshire pudding - a sort of batter that puffs up when you bake it in the oven!
