Birdie in the Nest for sure! I'm 74 and still eat them. My memory of it goes way, way back. Just salt and pepper for me! Yum!

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!

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!

I've seen "v for vendetta", like another commenter, and in that movie they call it 'eggy in a basket'. It is also much more flavorful if you use real butter as opposed to margarine. Delicious either way though.

My Dad made this for us on the week-ends as he always fixed our breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays. He called them egg nest and they were made for him when he was growing up with his German Grandparents.

I saw a recipe for same thing but done in the oven so you could make several at the same time. I am trying to locate that recipe now.

My dad used to make this when I was a kid. He called it Eggs in a Basket. Although he toasted the bread first. His was always awesome. Mine sucked everytime I made it in the future. How can eggs and toast suck? Leave it to me to screw up my choldhood....
