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!
This has been a popular recipe with my growing up years and still is but my parents always called just an egg in the hole. lol. doesn't really matter the name still good and taste the same after all. :)
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.
I know this recipe very well, but I call it a Birds Nest.
