French Toad in the Hole Recipe

Serves 3


  • 1 Large Ciabatta Loaf
  • 10 Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Herbs de Provence
  • 2/3 cups Milk
  • Salt (To Taste)
  • 3 tablespoons Butter (divided)


Prep Work
Step 1
Take the loaf of bread and slice it evenly about 3/4 of an inch thick.
Step 2
Once the bread is sliced, use a biscuit cutter to make a hole in the center. You can leave the cut out piece in the bread for now.
Step 3
Using a 9x12 baking dish, add 4 eggs, milk, and all but a couple pinches of the Herbs de Provence. Then wisk thoroughly.
Step 4
Place the bread directly in the eggy mixture and let soak for about 30 minutes, then turn over for another 30 minutes.
Cook Time
Step 5
Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat it to a medium heat. Once it is hot place a slice or two of the bread (without the centers) in the pan, add a pinch of salt, and cook 4 minutes.
Step 6
Flip the bread over and cook for another 3 minutes.
Step 7
Melt a little of the butter in the hole.
Step 8
Crack an egg in the hole. Season the top of the egg with a bit of salt and a pinch of the Herbs de Provence. Cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
Step 9
The center of the egg should still be runny, with the whites cooked through.
