Paleo Eggs In A Hole, or eggs in a basket, or toad in hole, or also known as eggs in a frame. This classic egg dish goes by many names. Actually, the true” Toad in a Hole” dish is sausages baked in Yorkshire pudding originating from the UK, and my family (Americans) have always called this egg dish “Toad in a Hole” . So they have been calling it the wrong name for a long time. Basically, it is a fried egg inside a “cut out” in your toast. I made a version that is paleo, grain free, starch free, nut free and low carb by using my grain free quick bread in place of regular toast. This recipe is actually 0 net carbs because of the fiber content is higher than the carb count. So, this recipe is great for Keto or Atkin’s induction.
