Toad in a Hole

Where have you been my whole life. Honestly, I think if I would have known about this earlier my life would have turned out so much different! LOL! See I absolutely love grilled cheese sandwiches and I adore dipping eggs. When I was younger I would fry an egg and add it on top of bread that was crisping up in a ton of butter, then I would layer cheese on top, another piece of bread, flip and crisp that side with a ton more butter. So when you cut into it you had melting cheese and warm yolk.... Just divine!!!!!!

The down side to doing that is making sure the egg doesn't over cook and the bread doesn't over crisp and that the cheese doesn't burn.

I haven't made this dish in years. About 2 months ago, I came across the recipe for Toad in a Hole!

Smush the bread in the middle, add the raw egg and top with cheese. Bake and all your wishes come true, well now really, but.....

What you get is a dish you don't have to babysit and not covered in a ton of butter. Actually no butter at all!
