    It's been a while since I've eaten "egg in a hole" and this is just as good as I remember. I cook the egg until the whites are done but the yolk is still somewhat runny. When you poke the yolk on the finished product, it runs over the toast and makes it even yummier. Made for Spring 2014 Pick A Chef.

    I have also been eating this for years. My mom called it "Spit In The Eye" she toasted the cutouts and they were referred to as eyelids. I have also heard them referred to as "Eggs In A Basket". Regardless of what they are called they are delicious and fun for kids.

I am now totally retired and love to cook. My passions are my Wife, children (3) my 5 Grandchildren and my Great Granddaughter and of course any sports, especially football. My wife &amp; I enjoy traveling. My pet peeves are Semi Truckers who take multiple miles to pass another semi and people who talk on the phone while driving.</p>
