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!

I have fond memories of my mother making these for me, as her mother had done for her a generation earlier. We just called them eggs in toast! The drinking glass I use to cut out the circle leaves a hole large enough for two eggs, and of course I fry and eat the circle! Not gourmet food of course, but not meant to be. Tasty, easy and economical.

Who cares what itand#039;s called?. It tastes good Nd that is all that matters. How boring is your life that you have to be drama queens over the name of a recipe?

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 itand#039;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!" :)
