Polenta Toad in the Hole

Photography: Jennifer Causey


  • Bacon
  • Polenta
  • Eggs


  1. Step 1

    Cook bacon in a nonstick skillet. Remove all but a thin film of fat from skillet. Cut cold polenta into 3-inch squares, then cut 2 1/2-inch circles out of centers with a glass or cookie cutter. Fry squares and circles over medium-high heat until golden on bottom. Flip and crack an egg into each hole. Cover and cook until whites are set but yolks are still runny. Serve with bacon.

    This is not 'Toad in the [filtered word]' (which is sausage baked in the oven in Yorkshire pudding batter, and a dinner rather than breakfast food) but a variation of 'Egg in a Window', which is egg cooked in a [filtered word] cut from a slice of fried bread and eaten with bacon for breakfast.
