This is good. We've always called it "Eggs with hats". Don't ask me why though.

Toad in the hole is also the name of a pub game.


Toad in the hole ready to serve.


Toad in the hole is a traditional British dish. It consists of sausages in Yorkshire pudding mix, usually served with vegetables and gravy.
Strong regional dialect has resulted in the dish being locally called "Tow'd in't th'ow" in some areas. Badly made toad in the hole is sometimes described as "frog in a bog".

In some countries, including Australia and Canada, and in many parts of the U.S., Toad in the Hole is the name of a dish that involves cutting a hole in a slice of bread, cracking an egg into it, and then frying it. [1], [2]

The second dish (egg on bread) is also called by quite a few other names: bird's nest, birdie in a basket, holey toast, bullseye toast, egg on a raft, Adam and Eve on a raft, paddy egg, castle'd egg, "eggs with hats on top" recipe book and "eggy in the basket" quoted in V for Vendetta.
When I was a young lad - yes I was a young lad at one point – I remember being at a neighbours home, of Scott, British, Dutch heritage, watching his mother cooking an egg, buy first ripping a whole in a slice of bread, dumping it in the fry pan, I can remember if she put butter in first after all it was forty some odd years ago and cracking an egg in it. I didn’t have to ask what it was because it was named by the mother when she asked her son if he wanted an “egg in the whole.”

I am sure that I made myself one or two of these for breakfast during the next 42 or so convening years. No matter, just the fact that this thread has brought me back, into that kitchen in Lacolle, Québec, so many years ago. It is as if I am with those people, who are no longer in my life, at the moment of reading your posts.

Thanks

Navy eggs

My uncle made these eggs-in-toast once and called it "navy eggs." Perhaps this was a good method for making eggs on naval boats so the rocking waves wouldn't make the eggs run?
