Ingredients

How to make it

  • Butter both sides of bread. Cut out a circle in the middle of each slice using a biscuit cutter or drinking glass.
  • Warm a skillet on medium heat.
  • Place bread in skillet and break egg into hole. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  • Flip a few times to make sure the egg gets fully cooked. When the egg is almost done put a slice of cheese on top to melt.
  • You can also fry the circles of bread you cut out earlier. We used to fight for these pieces as kids.

    I never had these as a kid but always wondered what they were called after I saw the dish being made in Moonstruck with Cher. They have been a staple in this house ever since that movie. Since I didn't have a name for the dish we called them noname eggs LOL. I never thought to add cheese to it before but am going to try that way very soon. Thanks for posting

    I've heard it called a variety of things, including "toad in a hole", "one-eyed pirates", "bullseye", "hole in one", and I'm sure there are others. It's fun to see how the name changes based on locale.
