Monday Morning Mania

Meet Mr. Hansen. He teaches Social Studies...He coaches Football...
His planning period is 1st Block, same as my Basic Foods class...so last week he stopped by. We were preparing eggs...scrambled...fried...hard cooked. So...he demonstrated his specialty...Toad in the Hole...
Here's what you do...
TOAD IN THE HOLE
Butter both sides of a slice of bread.
Tear out the center to create a small hole.
Place bread on hot skillet or griddle.
Crack egg and slide into hole.
Fry until bread is golden brown.
Carefully turn, to brown the other side.

So, today...with intensity, we prepare for the end of the school year.
Students are testing and completing final projects...but we each took time to prepare a Toad in the Hole...a skill to last for a lifetime...

Cool! We used to cook those on the last day of day camp...on "Buddy Burners" that we made from tin cans. I made them for my own kids for breakfast quite often...but never called them Toad in the Hole...Cute! And your kids will always remember the coach showing off coking skills!

It is so important for young people (male and female alike) to learn life skills like this. Sounds very good and so simple! After all these years, I still remember some things like that I learned in school from very patient teachers! I'm grateful to them.

I can't believe I've never heard of this; eggs and toast are a favorite meal of mine - I can't wait to try this!!

We have always made those and cut the center of the bread out with a glass and then toast the cut out piece for dipping the yolk. We call them Bird's Nests.
