The Pioneer Woman calls them 'Egg in a hole'.
We used to call them 'Bird in a Basket'.
Since Henry fell in love with Mervin the duck, we now call them 'Duck in a Bucket'.
Whatever you call them,
it doesn't get much better than having your egg fried in to your toast
rather than just sitting on top of your toast.
Oh wait, you're not like me?
You don't eat 3 fried eggs on toast every morning for breakfast?
You're family doesn't consume 2.5 dozen eggs a week?
You don't daydream about finally getting that chicken coop and pet chickens all.day.long?
You can still enjoy your 'Duck in a Bucket' even if you aren't an egg fiend like us.
