Froggy in the Hole

Talk about a lazy Sunday!  After many weekends of either having company or being on the go, we actually didn’t have any commitments today.  That meant we got to stay up late watching a movie last night and sleeping in this morning.  It was magnificent!

Upon waking up, I was planning on making a new pancake recipe that I have been thinking up, but Mike asked for something simpler.  He asked for something with eggs and toast.  I also love the combination of eggs and toast and recommended Froggy in the Holes.  One of my favorites.


There are tons of names for this easy breakfast dish (read as if Bubba from the movie Forrest Gump was reciting this):  egg in a nest, bird in the hole, egg in a basket, bull's eye eggs, cowboy eggs, egg-in-the-hole, egg in a frame, eggs in a blanket, Egyptian eye, elephant egg bagel (when made using a bagel rather than bread), frog in a hole, toad in a hole, moon eggs, Egg in Toast, Sunshine Toast, and Magic Egg.

To me, it has always been called Froggy in the Hole.
The best part?  I almost always have every ingredient on hand and it takes no time at all to prepare.  This morning I served it with some Turkey Sausage links from the freezer and we had a delicious stick-to-your-ribs breakfast in no time, and we didn’t have to get out of our pajamas.  Actually, we still aren’t!

Print this Recipe
  • bread of choice – I used wheat
  • eggs
  • butter – I used Brummel and Brown w/ yogurt, it’s lower in fat with a great butter taste
Depending on how many Froggies you want to make depends on how much of each ingredient you need. 
Butter both sides of a piece of bread.  Using a biscuit cutter, or if you don’t have one you could always use the wide mouth of a drinking glass, and cut a hole in the middle of the buttered bread – don’t throw away the center circle, put those on the griddle too!

Spray griddle, or frying pan, with non-stick spray and place bread on the hot surface.  Crack egg into the hole in the middle.

Season with Salt and pepper.  Turn over half way through the cooking process.  Froggyies are the best with a slightly runny yolk.  Makes for great dipping!



Serve with desired sides and enjoy!
