15 ways to bake eggs in something other than bread

Egg baked in potato

Here’s something fun for a hectic dinner: 15 ways to bake eggs in foods, apart from using toast (though that is still one of the best ways). But before listing them, a slight digression on different terminology that our research unearthed. In the U.S. the classic egg fried in a piece of bread with a hole cut out of the middle is called a “toad-in-the-hole.” In the U.K., however, a toad-in-the-hole refers to sausages cooked in Yorkshire pudding batter. If that sound good (and it really does), here’s an online recipe from Pam Anderson and Jamie Oliver at the EYB library.

This list of foods in which you can bake eggs was compiled by BuzzFeed Food, which also has links to online recipes for each of these dishes:

  • avocado
  • tomato
  • bread boat
  • acorn squash
  • bell pepper
  • eggplant
  • onion rings
  • dinner rolls
  • tacos
  • tomato sauce
  • casserole
  • baked potato
  • donut

And if you break out a muffin tin:

  • shredded or sliced potatoes
  • thinly sliced deli meats

Of course, if you do want to use bread, there’s nothing wrong with that. But you can do far more than use a simple square piece of bread: cut any shape out with a cookie cutter (flowers are nice).

And don’t forget Yorkshire Pudding.
