"Love this recipe but its not toad in the hole."
"I recently introduced my husband to this classic, made for me as a kid by my Aunt Debby. He's crazy about it! He suggested adding a cinnamon sugar mixture before cooking and it's delicious. Also, NEVER discard the center!"
"Grew up having this & my daughter has loved it since she was small - but you never discard the hole you cut out! That's the best part, all buttery crisp & toasty. My daughter considers it a treat when she comes to visit & I cook this for her. Lots of good memories."
"I have always called it Bird's Nest. Keep the round, which is cut out by using a drinking glass, then butter in the skillet, add the egg and place a few slices of cooked ham in the skillet. When you flip over the bread witrh egg, add the heated up ham and place a slice of American cheese on it, continue to heat until cheese is melted. Make sure you flip the cutout too. More toast to dip the egg yolk with. Enjoy."
"While this is a delicious and easy-to-make breakfast dish, it is not Toad-In-The-Hole, which is sausages baked in Yorkshire pudding batter (contrary to another reviewer's interpretation), and hails from England. Egg-in-a-hole was famous in our family and remains a favorite of my grandchildren - and their grandmother!"
