A different twist on a breakfast staple.
I got 5 dozen eggs on sale this week for 99 cents and was pondering with a co-worker on what to make that would be different that just omelets, fried eggs and hard boiled eggs and she said when she was young, her mother made her and her brother "eggs in a hole" - I had never heard of this so knew I wanted to try it as it sounded like something different and fun.

It is amazing how different people call it different things. I was told by a former co-worker that they are also called "toad in a hole".

My boyfriend makes these, but he calls them window eggs, and he "closes the window" by putting the cut out circles on top of the egg when he serves it.
