Fried Egg in Bread

What to do when you are hungry n have just one egg & a slice of bread left in your fridge… this is what happened with me today… so I made this easy fried egg in bread… its as simple and easy  as a fried egg but just a li’l different in appearance that doesn't make it boring…



Egg: 1 No.
Bread: 1 Slice
Oil: 1/2 Tsp
Salt: to taste
Pepper: to taste
Tomato Ketchup for garnish


  • Cut circle from bread with the help of a cookie cutter or lid of a round box.


  • Heat oil in a pan.


  • Put bread slice in the pan and crack an egg in the center.


  • Cover with lid and cook till its set.


  • If you like can serve it at this stage also but I like to cook a little from the other side as well… so I flipped it very carefully…


  • Take out carefully from the pan, sprinkle salt an pepper over it and eat… if you like, add ketchup also… .. I don’t …did just for the pic.



  1. Hahaha... i made this before... but there's a name for it. It's 'Toad in a hole'.

  2. wow...this looks good !!!definitely I'm trying this out !!!

  3. this is very handy for bachelors also. quick and easy.

  4. Thats an Egg in Basket not a Toad in the Hole, A Toad in the Hole is sausages surrounded by Yorkshire pudding batter! Here, the chef calls it a fried egg in bread - that's what it is. Nevertheless, I make this with the egg beaten with milk, cheese, spring onions, sausage, spices etc, in thick sliced artisan bread, sort of a slightly gourmet version. Great Breakfast!!

  5. Thanks Sonali & hamaree rasoi.... n thanks Dipesh for sharing knowledge.. its so good to have such healthy discussions and sharing diff. versions of the recipe....
