Birdies in a Nest
(1 serving) Printable Version
Melt butter or margarine in frying pan over medium-high heat.
Put the bread in the frying pan.
Drop the egg in the hole you made in the bread.
Cook by flipping until the egg is cooked to your liking.
These are also sometimes known as One-Eyed Sailors. Drop the egg into the bread very gently. You may want to crack the egg into a bowl and slide the egg from the bowl to the bread.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank johnspup for this recipe.

This is my 9 year old son's favorite weekend breakfast. He calls it Super Toast. I like it too. We sprinkle shredded cheese on at the end.

This is my husband's specialty weekend breakfast, which he calls Egyptian Eyes. He uses a drinking glass like a cookie cutter to make the hole, and then toasts the round bread disks in the pan with butter along side the egg-toast. Yum!

When I was growing up, my grandmother made this for me. She called it a "Toad in the Hole". It is now a favorite for my grandchildren. grammasue

This is a family favourite and we called it Egg In A Hole. Try adding a spot of Worchestershire or HP Sauce. It's delicious!

This is the first recipe my Mom taught to cook when i was a child. I'd forgotten about. Thanks for bringing it back to mind.

I found this recipe in a book (Diarie of a Mad Housewife) about 40 years ago. It will never get old.

I'm 68 years old and have been eating eggs this way since I was a little girl. My favorite way to eat them, but we always called it "Eggs in a Hole" I like your name better.

I call this "Monster's Eye", i guess there's a whole bunch of different names. The point is, it's a new spin on eggs and toast, and highly recommended. Delicious!

Great. I had them in Jamaica. My husband loved how they tasted. My daughter will be surprised when I make it for her.
