"What's in a name?"

It has come to my attention that a certain breakfast dish goes by multiple different names.
This is the breakfast dish that I am referring to which my mom would frequently make growing up.

In my parent's household, this dish was called toad in the hole.
I have heard it called eggs in a basket and someone recently called it one-eyed gypsy.
If you know or eat this dish, what do you call it, inquiring minds want to know?
Ok not really, I just wanted to ask and what see sort of response I get.

Oh man your mom was so cool! I have heard the term "eggs in a basket" but I never knew what they were referring too. I never seen this cute dish so I am not much help!

Courtney said...

Love this! My aunt used to make it for me and called it a "Moon over Miami". This is still often my dinner;)

YUM! Eggs in a basket for me. Sometimes I even make another variation of this by smooshing butter bread in a cupcake tin and cracking the egg in the middle then sprinkling with a little cheese. Comes out actually looking like a basket that way.

Never seen this before ... but it looks really yum ... Toad in the Hole is a British dish consisting of tiny sausages cooked in batter ... this is all I can contribute to the discussion I'm afraid:)

Happy thursday!

i made this breakfast and posted the recipe on my blog back in april. i wasn't sure what to call it, so i titled the post "breakfast cut outs." in the comments section, one blogger referred to it as "toad in the hole."

it seems to be called a bunch of different names...i guess it is a regional thing?
