    Default Hole in the Wall Eggs

    I cooked these for my boys for the first time ever today. Don't ask
    me why I have waited seven years to cook my poor neglected sons a hole
    in the wall. They loved them!

    This is the breakfast prepared by cutting a hole out of the middle of
    a slice of bread, browning the slice in some butter, dropping an egg
    in the middle, then flipping it over after a few minutes to finish
    cooking. Don't forget to brown the circle cut out of the bread, too.

    The first time I tried these, they were prepared by a friend's
    grandmother. She called the dish a toad in a hole. (I know that
    there is a British dish with the same name.) I have also seen it
    called a one-eyed Jack and eggs in a frame. Does anyone have another
    name?

    We always called it "bread eggies," although I could not tell you
    where that name started...not with us, I confess, and I think it was
    used by a sibling who got it from her husband's family.

    I called them eggs in a frame and used to make that for the kids. It's
    really cute stuff. These days they'd probably be mildly amused.

    I knew it as "Toad in a Hole."

    Our niece came to live with us. She was a troubled teen. Then one weekend
    my wife and I were deciding what to have for breakfast. She spared to life
    stating "Toads in a Hole. I'll make them.

    She went into the kitchen and went to work, beaming. When we finished and
    gave our compliments to the chef she blushed and went about cooking
    seconds.

    Every Saturday morning from them on, we had "Toads in a Hole" for breakfast
    ritual. It was about the only time she seemed happy, contributing to the
    household in her own small but vitally important way of belonging.

    She grew into a loving and caring wife and mother! We were very proud of
    her. She's next in line to be Matriarch of the family.

    My ex called it Target Toast; instead of flipping, she slipped the pan under
    the broiler to set the top of the egg.

    I would call then toad in the hole and I'm not British. But they are
    delicious.

    I don't know what that would be called but I suppose you know that
    Toad in the Hole is sausages baked in a Yorkshire pudding batter.

    I think pan-fried bread is underrated.

    Maybe because you need to weigh the bread down sometimes, if you're frying
    an English muffin.

    No point in wasting food. Fried circles are yummy.

    Toad in the Hole is sausage cooked in a flour and egg batter. Using the term
    for Hole in the Wall eggs is a misnomer.

    ****************
    I've been reading the thread with interest, vaguely recalling Toad in the
    Hole involved link sausage. I've never had Toad in the Hole but everything
    I've read about it described as you did.

    I'll have to try Hole in the Wall eggs sometime. Sounds very easy and tasty.
    Any specific seasonings other than S&P?

    It's all nonsense meant to look good ona plate. Bottom line, it's an
    egg w/ toast. Being one lazy sumbitch, I quickly pan fry 2 eggs over
    easy while a big piece of 12 grn toast is in the toaster. I tear the
    toast up into bits inna bowl and toss in the eggs. Mix, mash, add
    S&P. Ain't pretty, but tastes exactly the same.
