This is one of the first recipes I had my children prepare when they were learning to cook. My "little ones" are now grown (and have advanced to more difficult recipes!), but this continues to be a traditional standby in my home and theirs.

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!

We call this Ceska Surprise - We butter the bread, use a shot glass to make the hole and cook the hole too. That is the first piece to dunk in the yolk.
