Simple Breakfast Recipe: Toast Made With Love

Simple breakfast recipes are among my favorite of all recipes. Maybe it’s because they’re not really true recipes at all. In fact, when it comes down to it, all I really do is to take a few food items and prepare them in a combination that happens to look somewhat creative but more importantly taste good and provide my kids the nutrition they need to start the day off right. That’s the goal anyway. Although I’ve never been a huge fan of cooking, over the 15 years that have spanned my motherhood experience,  I have come to embrace some of life’s basic and necessary domesticities in which fixing meals for my family is one of them. So, I keep it simple (very simple) and do what I can in the kitchen, breakfast being my favorite meal of the day because, it’s been pretty easy to come up with some morning munchies that my kids enjoy.

This one is a twist on something traditionally called Toad in the Hole. I decided to give it my own whimsical (and loving) motherly manipulation and my kids loved it.

  • Easy as 1-2-3! 1 of 7

    All you need is bread, butter (which is optional) and, an egg.

  • Prep with Love 2 of 7

    Cut a small, simple shape from the middle of your bread with a cookie cutter. I've opted for a heart, of course! Buttering one or both sides of the bread works well but it's only optional.

  • Warm up and get cracking. 3 of 7

    Place bread and cut out down in the preheated, non-stick pan. When pan gets heated up enough to fry an egg, crack an egg and drop it into the hole.

  • Flip out. 4 of 7

    Let it cook through enough to make the whole thing (bread and all) flippable. If the egg is too runny it will be difficult to flip. When it's time, carefully flip and continue to cook the egg and the other side of the bread.

  • Plate it. 5 of 7

    Once it's cooked through to your liking (my kids like it over medium), plate it. Arrange your toast and cutout piece on your plate.

  • Dig in. 6 of 7

    Serve with a fork.

  • Hold on. 7 of 7

    Or not.
