Hole-in-One Eggs

An egg fills the center of each savory serving of this fried bread from Terri Prudhomme of Moorhead, Minnesota. “Shredded wheat gives each slice a nice, crispy texture,” Terri assures. “Enjoy it plain or with syrup.”

    similar to "Toad-in-a-hole" but much better with the French Toast/syrup taste. Next time we will use thicker "Texas Toast" rather than thin bread. many thks.
