Fry an egg inside a hole cut into a slice of bread. The result looks something like this. Some people call this dish an “egg in a basket,” a “one-eyed jack,” or a “bird in a nest.” But I was raised in the South, where we learn to speak English properly, so I call it a “toad-in-a-hole.”
Here’s a great variation for Easter. Jessie Oleson Moore made this sweet version by chilling a Cadbury Creme Egg, then frying it in a slice of pound cake. What a brilliant idea!
