Holey bread!


Okay, so I made bread yesterday-4 big loaves. 2 of them turned out perfect, the other two…not so much. Look what I discovered when I was slicing it.


Uh oh! Okay, so the fix? Make “Toad in the Hole” for breakfast! That’s my favorite name for it, but it’s really called “Chicken in a basket.” And the wonderful Pioneer Woman taught this suburbanite how to make them!


Cut out the middle-it was yucky anyway.


Fry the bread in butter and crack an egg in the middle. Fry and flip! Season as desired!


Then serve to hard-working husband! YUM! (He didn’t really appreciate me taking a picture of him at 6:00 in the morning, but you better believe he LOVED his breakfast!)

Now my children don’t really appreciate eggs cooked this way, so I got the bright idea of scrambling the eggs first. They turned out pretty good, the eggs didn’t stay in the hole as nicely, but they all gobbled it up and asked for seconds!


Tomorrow (or the next day depending) I’ll show you what I’m going to do with my other loaf of bread. This one, instead of having a hole in the middle, rose so much that I couldn’t get it out of the pan with out cracking it and it had a HUGE air bubble in the top! It’s fascinating!

Off to the zoo!

    Oh, and I really, REALLY want to start making my own bread. That's why I chose this post to leave my comment on!

    So happy to 'meet' you!
