Paleo, grain free and low carb.

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.

    This looks good but the fiber cannot be higher than the carb count. Every gram of fiber is one gram of carb but you just can’t process it that’s why you don’t count it.

      Kieran, Yes you can microwve in a glass or other ceramic loaf pan for 1:30 minutes to 2:00 minutes, depending on your microwave.
