Spaceman Eggs


This isn’t really a recipe!

When the boys have gone through fussy stages with eggs, these eggs have always remained popular.


1 egg

1 slice of bread


Preheat a non stick frying pan and the grill.

Using a gingerbread man or lady cutter, cut out the centre of the bread, making sure the crusts are still intact.

Put the cut bread and figure into the frying pan.

Crack an egg gently and pour the egg white into the hole in the bread, starting at the bottom.

Pour the yolk into the head area to create the helmet.

Fry until the white is beginning to become opaque, then, pop under the grill just long enough for the white to solidify but the yolk to remain runny.

Use  the toast man to dip into the spaceman’s helmet!

    We do this but without the design lol we call it “egg in the middle” or “toad in the hole” or we used to call it the later more often but my youngest would stick out his tongue and wrinkle his nose up even though he is all boy..he’s still a Pisces and toad should not be on the menu. Even as a joke 😝

    1. Hi Deepsouthcakes, thanks for re blogging! When we’re camping we just cut a whole in the middle and cook them on the BBQ. One of my boys has never been keen on eggs and this was the only way he’d eat them for ages!
