This is timeless comfort food! My folks made this when I was a kid (they called it "a toad in a hole"), and I still make it--at least once or twice a month. These days I serve it with nuts and maple syrup on top, and pair it with a green veggie salad (the sweet and the savory). It's a quick, easy meal that's always welcome! Thanks for posting this NikkyNicole!!

When I was a kid we called these 'Popeye Eggs'. I still make them every once in a while and they still taste great. Butter the middle sections from the cookie cutter and fry them on the side. You also need a little ketchup on the side. Try it -you'll like it! So will your kids.
