    For special breakfasts, I use a cookie cutter to make the hole. Definitely cook the cut out for an added treat to the presentation.

    rocky mountain toast is the best food I've ever had. Every day I would wake up at 6:00 a.m. just to eat half a piece.

    Getting the timing right can be a bit tricky. If you don't pay close attention, it can get overcooked.

    this recipe has an insane amount of names. i guess it depends where you are from. there's toad in a hole, chicken in a hole (or basket), egg in a basket, spit in the eye, to name a few.
