  1. Butter both sides of bread. Cut a circular hole in the center of the slice of bread, about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
  2. Heat a frying pan or griddle on medium-high heat. When the frying pan is hot, place the bread into the pan and let it brown for one minute. Flip the toast over and let the other side brown for one minute.
  3. Break the egg into the hole in the bread. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to the consistency you prefer.

The pan has to be hot or the egg will creep out from under the bread -- it will still taste fine, but the presentation just won't be the same. I used to love this one as a kid. We called it a ...

Made these for years. We and the English call them Toad in a Hole.

I've been eating this since I was a kid (Egg in a Hole according to my Dad). I'd suggest cracking your egg into a small bowl first before pouring it onto the toast for a few reasons; easier aim,...
