What I didn’t realize, before my Facebook Group, Air Fryer, Recipe and Tips, that this dish has many different names, some I never heard of.
Bird’s Nest Egg
I never heard of anything like those, one day a lovely woman in Australian emailed me and asked if I had any recipes for Toad Hole. I was like what, and when I googled it, and I was like oh you mean, Egg in the Hole, she responded, no, I never heard of it, and I sent a picture, and she was like yes, Toad Holes.
It’s a great and easy breakfast idea, no matter what you call it.
This is one of the simplest recipes, although to figure out the cooking temperature and time, I did burn a few eggs.
Baked eggs are one of the most popular breakfast items in the world. If you are like me through all of your kids like eggs differently, whether they are soft boiled, over easy, poached or as my son will call them dunkie eggs. (The type where you dunk your toast into them and coat your toast with the yolk, do you know what I am talking about?)
How do you make the perfect baked eggs?
Well, I’m here today to give you some pointers.
The key to perfect scrambled eggs is to beat the eggs. Now, I’m not talking about the regular beating, I am talking about whisking the eggs, which lets some air enter them when you whisk fast, and your eggs end up nice and fluffy.
What you need for a tool is simple, a good whisk, I have this one, and not only does it work wonders, it is fun to use.
Today’s scrambled eggs are a great way to start any breakfast, filled with protein and vegetables, and it should keep you filled through lunchtime.
I love using my Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) for all of the recipes, I usually use my burner stove for, they are faster and require less clean up, plus my son travels a ton for hockey, so I can take the Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) on the road, so it saves me money by not eating out at restaurants, since eating out with 20 hockey-playing boys gets very expensive, very soon.
First tip: If you make these, splurge and get ramekins, when I tried other containers they all failed.
Third Tip: Be generous with the non-stick cooking spray. And if you are using your air fryer a lot. Or plan to, invest in one of these sprayers, Over the long run you will save a ton of money.

This was the muffin tin that I used, I had it for a long time because it was small enough to fit in my GoWise, Secura and other air fryers, that had baskets

This is a really classic breakfast idea. And It's a great breakfast to eat on the run. I buttered the toast first, which gave it a really nice flavor. Season with salt and pepper, after air frying.
- 4 slices bread (any type, today I used white)
- 4 teaspoon butter, room temperature
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
Start by buttering the toast.
Then use your biscuit cutter, to cut a hole in the middle.
Then I placed the bread on the air fryer tray, so I could pop it right into the air fryer.
Crack an egg in the hole.
Set your egg in the hole in the air fryer basket or oven 350 degrees F, for 5 minutes.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
