Toad in the Hole

- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 slices multigrain (or hearty white) bread
- 4 eggs
- salt & pepper

Cut a 2-3" diameter hole in the middle of each slice of bread, and remove the centers (save them). Heat a large frying pan, or flat top griddle, over medium heat. Melt butter, and ensure that there is an even coating on your cooking surface. Place bread onto the cooking surface so that the bread is not being squished (but it can touch). Toast one side of each piece, then flip them over. Immediately crack one egg into the center of each piece of bread. Lightly salt and pepper each egg. Cover the pan if possible. Cook until the egg whites are set and resemble a sunny side up egg. Remove. Quickly toast the bread centers on the heated pan (add more butter if necessary). Serve with toasted centers.

Servings: 2

As simple as it sounds, it's really fricking tasty, and not something that most people readily think of. It's quick too! Prep and cooking time was about 15-20min. Mmmm.... I like to spread a little raspberry jam on my toasted bread, and it's especially awesome served with a little bacon on the side.

Does it look impressive when it's done?

Definitely! I'll try to post the photos I took when I get home..... They were featured on the cover of this month's Food Network Magazine, and they are fricking tasty!
