This isn't toad in the hole. This is an egg on (in?) toast. There's not even ONE common ingredient. There's putting a different twist on recipes, and there's making something completely different. This is unbelievably stupid.

In independent America, this is Toad in the Hole. We don’t call sweaters jumpers nor are cookies called biscuits either. This is the recipe I was looking for on Google! Thank you.

Seriously? A recipe for a fried egg on toast? Toad in the hole is a FAMOUS, traditional English dish of bangers (fat savory sausages) baked in a Yorkshire pudding. It is NOT a breakfast dish, and it's most definitely NOT this abomination. You demean your site by demonstrating such a high degree of ignorance about the culinary arts.

So easy and so good. My only regret is I waited so long to try this. Delicious. I added the cutout circle to the pan and ate it along with the rest. I highly recommend this recipe!Volunteer Field Editor

My Mom always called this "Toad in the Hole." C'mon folks...this is so cute, so fun...what's in a name? "A rose by any other name would smells as sweet." And, so it with "Toad in the Hole," "Ginny Eggs," "Spit in the Ocean," Bird's Nest," etc. I just call it "Delicious!" :)

"Egg in a nest" is what we call it. We make it in cast iron skillet when camping. Indeed we always toasted the middle also. I scramble the egg for those who prefer it to fried.

My mom made this for my sisters and I and I made it for my children. We called it Ginny eggs but I don't know where the name came from. We cooked the cut-out piece of bread in the butter and used it top dip in the egg yolk. Delicious and very easy way to enjoy eggs and toast!

As lovely as this is for a nice kid friendly, quick meal, Its not called a 'toad in the hole' as this recipe states.(For anyone interested toad in the hole is sausages in a giant Yorkshire pudding)
