The V for Vendetta breakfast

I guess is there is one good thing that came from watching this movie it was seeing the weird Egg in Basket breakfast. It had never occured to me to cut out bread and cook an egg inside it before.

Anyway on a whim I tried making it and it turns out to be a good fast cooking breakfast by making both egg and toast at the same time. I like cooking it with cheese and serving it with chile sauce on it.

It Is Yummy!

My family has been eating those for breakfast for years. I love the flavor it has. It is one of my dads favorites. In fact we made a couple just a few days ago.

...and serving it with chile sauce on it.
You were all Mother country right up until then. The correct answer would've been Worcestershire sauce, HP or brown ('broon'!) sauce .

When I was a little girl, I was a Girl Scout, and that is one of the recipes that was in my Girl Scout Cookbook. I got a cooking badge by making eggs in baskets, Bunsteads, and something with franks.
I used to make these for my kids, and they loved them. I like the idea of putting cheese on top. I just may have one for lunch.

didya ever have eggs in purgatory?

it's making a quick fresh tomato sauce in a skillet, then making pockets in the sauce after it reduces a little, and carefully cracking an egg into each pocket. cover and simmer gently until the eggs are cooked to your liking.

options are what you add to your sauce like peppers, mushrooms, garlic, zucchini, etc., and topping it with shredded cheese before covering.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

ate Videodrome's dish all the time as a kid but called it an egg in a frame.

Bucky, yours sounds pretty cool too. Must be a Cat-lick recipe (purgatory and all -with any luck, I'll get there).

My sister sort of makes her french toast like that. She soaks the bread in egg, cuts a whole in the middle, and cracks an egg in the hole. I don't really know why... i don't think it would be very tasty? I never tried it.

Buckytom, your dish does sound good. Is it anything like huevos ranchero?

I always thought it was called Toad in the Hole.

Toad in the hole

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 kid we always called the egg-in-the-hole in the bread thing Toad in the Hole.

Have never had the true Bristish version, but have made Yorkshire pud many times and it sounds tasty.

Gotta try it.
