AHP Egg in the Hole



When preparing for a trip to the woods with my family, I planned to make a handful of quick and yummy meals for us to enjoy. I wanted to eat well without dedicating my days to the kitchen (or campfire). AHP Egg in the Hole is a wonderfully easy recipe that could not be more appropriate for a cabin dwelling. It’s also delicious and fun for children of all ages. Some other names you might know the dish by: Eggs in the Basket, Toad in the Hole, Gashouse Eggs, A Hole in One, Spit in the Ocean, and Popeye Eggs.
