My mom used to call this toe in the hole but making this brought back so many memories

Just made this with my kids they loved it. We used to call it Sledgehammer bread because in the tv series Sledgehammer he used to toss the bread in the air and shoot a hole in and catch it in the pan. Brings back great memories. Ps. I’m a South African and we know it as Toad in a Hole!

Name aside (this is the correct name in America people relax) I can’t believe you said to throw away the middle piece of bread, you’re supposed to toast that and dip it in your egg!

My mother called this bunny in the hole. I have no idea why...but I have such wonderful memories of her serving us this for breakfast.

Cheater way to make eggs in the microwave from 1975! Lol No name either, just when we wanted an egg with a runny middle, we made it this way.

Interesting that i found this recipe after looking for what Iron Chef Guarnaschelli called an egg in the middle of pumpernickel bread “toad in a hole”

One of our favorite breakfast recipes! We cook the Hole in butter and eat it with syrup or jelly.

Love toad in holes! Sorry not everyone calls it the same thing. No need to be rude.

This is such a quick and easy recipe! Very simple to quickly put together when you need a last minute breakfast (or dinner!) and only takes a few minutes. To make it extra cutesy, you can use a cookie cutter to make a shape for the center "hole" - like a little heart or star.

It does make a difference what it's called. If you're doing a search for stuffed mushrooms and a meatball recipe comes up, you're going to be confused and most likely upset. The "toad" in toad in a hole is sausage. The recipe shown here is egg in a frame or egg in a nest!
