Toad in a Hole + Eggplant Deliciousness

Sometimes, I want to make something, but don’t want to eat it (this happens pretty often with a lot of sweets).  This morning I made the fella something fun that I like to make but don’t like to eat (namely because of my irrational aversion to crispy egg): Toad in a Hole.

I used Apple Oat Bread from Wegman’s.  Cut a hole in with a cup.  Buttered the bread.

Put it in a pan on medium heat.

Cracked in an egg.

Covered it for 3 minutes (ish)

Flipped and served!

Thank goodness the lovely fella was around to eat it!

Are a fan of toad in a hole?

Later in the day, I tried one of Jenn’s recipes that looked absolutely amazing: Eggplant Lasagna!

This isn’t your average lasagna!  Instead of pasta noodles it has QUINOA!

I followed her recipe almost exactly except I used some pasta sauce Rhoda made and added some chopped spinach to bulk up the sauce with extra veggies.

OMG delicious!  Make it now! Perfect for those who aren’t huge fans of pasta like me 🙂

Jenn, this is flat out wonderful!

Did anyone watch Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution tonight? In case you missed it, you can watch it online free at  Since you all had a lot of great feedback/comments on my previous post on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, I’ll dedicate a whole post to the new episode in the days to come.

Ugh spring break is almost over 😦 Say it ain’t so!

Enjoy your night!!

    I like toad in a hole but have never made it myself, always either at my grandparents’ or once my best friend made it and called it a “bulls eye.” It’s something I never crave but always enjoy. 😀

    I’m so glad you made the eggplant lasagna!! YAY! 😀 It looks delicious!!! I also like the addition of spinach. *hand to forehead* I should have added that. 😦 I’ve found it makes lasagna even creamier. YUM YUM

    I love Toad in a Hole, except I call it egg in a basket LOL. 🙂

    i’ve been wanting to make that egg concoction for a while, but haven’t yet 😦 it sounds sooo fun!!! 😀 What do you do with the hole part?
    that lasagna looks fantastic, I saw that recipe in jenn’s blog and wanted to try it as well.

    That lasagna looks killer! And I’d probably love toad in a hole, given my love of the crispy egg 😛 What’s funny, though – is I was just thinking of the polenta dish you did the other day that was similar…with the polenta, egg, and marinara. is that still called toad in a hole? Not sure. But hopefully you know what I’m referring to? haha.
    Anywyas – enjoy the rest of your spring break! I only caught half of the Jamie Oliver show. Hopefully will catch the rest online!

    ohh so that’s how you make toad in a hole! I tried to make it for my brother once but I didn’t do it right…

    I missed Food Revolution! I’ll have to catch up online 🙂

    Yummy that lasagna looks so good!! Such pretty pictures!

    Darn it! I missed Food Revolution 😦 I’ll have to try to watch it online after I do my huge pile of homework!

    Cute toad in a hole….. I call it eggs in nest! So weird how there’s so many names for it!

    The lasagna looks great! Not a fan of Toad in a Hole, but hubby would probably love. I didn’t watch Food Revolution, but I did watch him on the Oprah show yesterday where he made a mom cry for only serving her kids cheap, processed foods like frozen pizzas, and not having any fresh, good foods in the house. I kind of agree with that, he was bluntly realistic about what she was doing to her kids health.

    Wegmans bread!!! Their store brand specialty breads are so good… Thank goodness they didn’t have them when I worked there back in college or I would have been round as a house (but happy from eating them).

    I make eggs in the hole sometimes and my yolk always overcooks, plus I make a mess when I flip it, so the fella’s cover trick is genius! I guess you know what I’ll be having for breakfast tomorrow 🙂

    No worries, I’m not the biggest fan of crispy eggs either. It’s just so…not soft ;] But I do like toads in a hole just because they’re so funny.

    And I do want to try that quinoa lasagna. It’ll be my first endeavor into eating quinoa as well.
