Do you ever make yourself the ridiculous-sounding breakfast fare of "Toad in a Hole?" It's such an easy, whimsical, yet elegant, way to start the day. It will fill your belly and your mind with happiness. I'm not sure why it's so much better than a fried egg served with toast alongside, it just is. Maybe it's all the symmetrical circles going on, quite pleasing to the eye.
Making Toad in the Hole is very simple -- hardly a recipe.
Butter a large skillet, cut a circle out of your favorite toast (I used Dave's Killer Bread this morning) using the rim of a glass or a cookie cutter, plop the bread on the hot pan and crack the egg into the hole. Cook your little circle bread on the side, this bit of bread toasts nicely in the time it takes for the egg to achieve desired doneness.
Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, and you're good to go!
