With just three ingredients, this fun, family-friendly Low FODMAP Toad in a Hole is an easy weekday breakfast or a scrumptious brunch entree.
Depending on where you live, toad in a hole may look like a very different dish. 🙂 Here in the midwest (US), Toad in a Hole refers to an egg cooked into the center of a bread slice.
Toad in a hole is typically made with wheat bread, which is usually higher in FODMAPs. So, for this recipe, I chose to use a certified low FODMAP bread from Schar to help keep things FODMAP diet-friendly. For other possible bread options, check the Monash FODMAP app or my article on low FODMAP bread.
Not only is this recipe a fun twist on familiar foods, but it’s also made with just 3 ingredients and can be ready in about 10 minutes.
This Low FODMAP Toad in Hole recipe calls for just 3 ingredients (plus salt and pepper):
- Low FODMAP Bread – 2 slices (I use Schär Deli Style Seeded Bread)
- Butter (or cooking oil) – 2 teaspoons
- Eggs – 2 large
To make this easy breakfast, simply:
Step 1: Cut a 2 to 3-inch hole in the middle of each slice of bread.
Step 2: In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Place bread slices into the skillet. Add an egg into the center of each bread slice. Cook 2 minutes, or until the bottom of the bread is lightly browned, and the eggs start to set. Flip and cook until eggs are cooked to your desired doneness. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve warm with your favorite low FODMAP sides.
Serve low FODMAP toad in a hole with these optional sides:
- Low FODMAP fruit: Strawberries, oranges, and grapes are all FODMAP free options
- Bacon or low FODMAP breakfast sausage
- Low FODMAP milk like a glass of lactose-free cow’s milk or almond milk
- Coffee or Espresso: Plain or made with low FODMAP milk are low FODMAP options if caffeine doesn’t bother you. (Caffeine can be a non-FODMAP trigger for some people with IBS).

I’ve never heard that called a toad in the hole! I was raised in the midwest we always called it a bird’s nest. Either way it’s both very good and fun.

Thank you, Carol! My go-to right now for low FODMAP bread is Udi’s Gluten Free White Sandwich Bread … it’s the only kind my supermarket currently carries. 🙂
