Our whole family loves these! Perfect summer dinner when the chickens are laying eggs like crazy. Here's some words to those that are not so favorable or had some trouble however...
A half pint canning jar or glass will give you a good sized hole.
Save the cut out bit, also buttered and grilled, to serve perched on top for dunking. In order to do this dish justice the yolks must be soft cooked. Only use the best quality, fresh-fresh-FRESH eggs from either your own chickens or a neighbor's. The key is to use eggs that were laid earlier that day. Supermarket eggs should never be used!
As I only use the best eggs laid that same day for this dish I have no problem serving it to my children. We've never had an issue.
Pumpernickel bread is heavenly in this!
The order in the pan should be bread then egg so that the egg is held in place. I do flip mine before I top it with cheese but this takes some skill, practice and a good spatula.
As to the name, it must be a regional thing because this is traditionally considered toad in a hole here at least. The British toad in a hole also looks delicious so we will try it too.
