Eggs made in bread.

   Discussion: Eggs made in bread.
nate... · 16 years ago
So, there seem to be a LOT of terms for the process of cutting a hole in the center of bread with a glass, then throwing it on a skillet and cooking an egg in said hole.

I've always know it as a "spit-in-the-eye".

What's your term?

Ditto. Machaneh Ramah. As previously mentioned.

I started a thread by accident. Cool!
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago
See I don't really have an answer because I'd never even heard of it until the past few years and the context in which I started, many names were being used.'s all of them to me :)

Oops, wrong website.

I don't get it.
Rimbo Back · 16 years ago
Hey, does anybody know where I might find a really big picture of an old-looking postcard from Nevada? I'd prefer something with a cartoony map and an assortment of pictures. Anyone? Anyone? Little help here? Come ON, . . . someone must know where I can find a giant scanned image of a postcard from Nevada circa 1987. . .

Nevada is how you kill pointless threads over on songfight. I forgot where I was for a second. :)
nate... Back · 16 years ago
I'm hurt.

Rimbo Back · 16 years ago
In any case, I've been wormed by "Nevada" from State Songs. Way to go, Josh. :)
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years ago

"egg-in-a-hole", basically.

It used to be my favorite when I was a kid. Still like it a lot.

ooooooooh! i have no idea what it's called. but, they do that in moonstruck with cher! *glee* olympia dukakis puts tomato puree on it too. (ew.) :D
Shelly · 16 years ago 7th grade home ec class ALLL those years ago, we made it under -this- moniker.
dgodwin · 16 years ago
I always learned it as an hobo egg, but that was cooking it on top of a coffee can (heated with a candle?) at girl scout camp (tagged along with the sisters and parent)

toad in the hole, from a kids cookbook. There was a similar term for a similar dish made with sausage, but now I can't remember.
It's a girl! Back · 16 years ago
Isn't the sausage one pigs in a blanket?
Rimbo Back · 16 years ago
Mmmmm, . . . pigs in a blanket . . . I'm going to go and get a McGriddle.
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years ago
i thought toad in the hole was sausages in yorkshire puddings. hrm. :D
Rimbo Back · 16 years ago
Actually, that's what I thought, too. Odd, being as I've never had yorkshire pudding before and have no idea what it's like.

1 egg
1 slice bread
3 tbsp. butter

Cut a circle out of center of bread slice. Fry bread in butter until brown and crisp on one side. Turn over and break egg into circle. Fry over low heat for 5 minutes.

Wow. You just answered the question posed in this poll. Any other postings will be entirely moot.

Yet not one mention of spit in the eye....

*shakes head*

People are weird.


renita · 16 years ago

Smatts' Baby's Pics! · 16 years ago

soul groove feline · 16 years ago
i've never heard of or made this concoction.

however, when i went to girl guide camp, we put eggs in ziploc bags and boiled them. they were called "eggs in a bag".

don't do it. don't do it. just... don't do it. wrong. lots of wrong.
