"A delicious runny yolk egg cooked in the center of a piece of toast and eaten with a fork is a great way to enjoy an egg in a slightly different way. My kids feel fancy when eating these."

  1. Melt the bacon grease in a non-stick pan over low heat.
  2. Cut a 1 1/2 to 2-inch hole from the center of the bread slice; lay in the hot skillet. When the side facing down is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes, flip and crack the egg into the hole; season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until the egg is cooked and mostly firm. Flip again and cook 1 minute more to assure doneness on both sides. Serve immediately.

my advice to people is when I learned this recipe at like 8 years old, I took the bread buttered it both sides, and took a small mouth glass and pressed down to cut the perfect circle (hole) in ...

This was breakfast after my muffins tanked. It's always a comforting breakfast (my dad made it for me when I was a kid) but it was made even better with the use of bacon grease. Is there anythin...

Excellent. I'm 50 years old and had never heard of this before. I prepared it for my husband this morning and he loved it. I used a fork to mix the egg a couple times as it cooked so it wasn'...

Egg in a hole, egg in a boat...so many different names for this! It's very good. Simple to make too. I turn down the heat after I put the egg in and cover with a lid for a few minutes or unti...

So many names for an old classic. To me it has always been Toad in a Hole. I now use olive oil for the extra flavor. Thanks for reminding me that my snack or quick lunch can be full of prote...

My mother made this for us as kids back in the 1960's. We called it "hole in the middle"....never used bacon grease...only butter. Nice with day or two day old bakery bread...not just white gr...

Delicious and easy for breakfast! Great way to combine your eggs and toast together plus it's a nice departure from the usual scrambled egg. I opted out of cooking this in bacon grease and just ...

5 stars for being easy and tasty. I toasted the holes along side and used them for mopping up the yolk. Might crack my egg a little sooner next time to ensure completely done whites.

My son-in-law made these one night and I have loved them since then. They are easy but you get the egg and toast at the same time. Great for day or night.
