Toads in the Garden

Toads in the Garden
(serves 1-2)

2 slices of whole wheat bread

1 large egg

1/8c chopped broccoli

2 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese


1. Lightly butter both sides of each piece of bread

2. Using a round cookie cutter or the rim of a drinking glass, cut a hole in the center of each piece of bread.

3. In a small bowl scramble the egg. Stir in the broccoli.

4. Put the bread slices with the holes cut out in a hot skillet (med-high heat). Spoon all of the egg/broccoli mixture evenly between the two holes. Cook 1-2 minutes on each side until the bread is brown and the eggs are cooked through.

5. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of each piece. Serve!

A healthier spin on classic "Toads in a Hole". I think it would also be fun to use heart, star or other fun shaped cookie cutters. You could also change the veggie to spinach or any other veggie that goes well in eggs. Huge hit with the toddler!
