Gashouse Eggs

Serves as many as you like

This is something my cousin, Janet Vedder, dreamed up. I added the garlic, sort of in memory of my father who felt anything was better for the flavor of garlic. I think it’s true, too. But if you want, leave the garlic out. Really, Janet wasn't totally original, the British call this "toad in the hole".

For each person:

2 eggs

2 slices bread

1 clove garlic, thinly sliced


Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. With a cookie cutter or shot glass, cut a hole in the center of each slice of bread. Reserve the cutouts.
  2. Heat a griddle or non-stick frying pan to medium hot. Melt butter and sauté the garlic.
  3. Place the bread slices and cutouts in the pan and break an egg into each hole. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Allow the eggs to cook until about half done. Turn the bread and the cutouts and cook until browned or until the eggs are ready and serve.
