    Oh, I SO need to show this to Monte! We’ve had a disagreement for YEARS about what this is called. I say it’s called “Eggs in Toast” and he has some crazy name for it that his mom calls it that doesn’t even make sense. Ha! This proves I’m totally right. :) He should have to buy me some jellybeans or something, don’t you think??

      So glad I could help with the egg-in-toast challenge. LOL! You definitely need a prize! I must ask . . . what does Monte call it?

    We actually had this argument again last night! He calls them Toad in the Hole. So he googled it and I guess people other than his family call it that. Hmmm… does it look like Toad in the Hole or Eggs in Toast, though?

      I’m thinking Toad in the Hole isn’t an appetizing enough name for this recipe. I’m voting for Eggs in Toast. The question is: what do we call the center of the bread that is cut out? It is the best part!!
