Making Eggs in a Hole Breakfast #kidsinthekitchen

Breakfast seems to be the most quiet part of the day lately. The kids are waking up groggy and zombielike. This comes from a day of play in the sun and pool. I obviously want to start them off with a good breakfast. Shae asks for eggs and toast all the time. At age 6 some might think she’s not ready to cook but out of the 3 of them she’s the most comfortable in the kitchen. I taught her how to make Eggs in a Hole or as some people call it Toad in a Hole. I don’t understand where “toad” comes from.Eating Eggs in a Hole
Anyway, we started with the cutting a circle out of her bread. She used her juice cup, it was the perfect fit.Making "Eggs in a Hole" for Breakfast #kidsinthekitchen

In a large buttered skillet over medium heat she added her toast pieces then slowly poured a cracked (but not scrambled) egg into the hole.
Slowly is the key. The heat of the pan will set the egg and you’re less likely to get spillage under the toast. If the egg does leak out just press down on edges of the bread for a moment.adding eggs

She lightly sprinkled her egg with salt and pepper and I flipped them to cook on the other side.Making "Eggs in a Hole" for Breakfast #kidsinthekitchen

Within 3-4 minutes her breakfast was cooked. I served this along with a yogurt and bowl of fruit and orange juice in her cup.

This method doesn’t work very well for scrambled eggs though. None of the 3 times I tried did I have a successful “omelet” in my toast hole.
