If I'm wrong about this, Donna will provide a correction. If she doesn't, I must be presumed to be correct.

You're probably wrong about the pancake after all, it's been an English word since the 14th century but ... the error, or (4) I have decided to save my breath. As always, it is hard to interpret silence correctly.

I didn't make an assumption, tho'. I am declaring a presumption, so to say. It may be an unreasonable one.
In my experience, the "Pannekoeken" of the restaurant (maybe was ... pretty high heat to ensure the raising of the dough.

Now that sounds like toad-in-the-hole, but with fruit instead of toads. (The "toads" of toad-in-the-hole are usually sausages, but can be any sort of (boneless!) meat, It's very good with strips of tender steak.) Cheers, Daniel.

I heard recently about a dish called "Egg in a Hole." Apparently it is a slice of bread with the center removed. You then fry an egg in the center of the bread.
Sorry, that was somewhat random. The toad-in-the-hole comment made me think of it.

The person who introduced me to this delicacy (UK, late 70s) called it a "gas house egg". Why, I've no idea.

Gashouse Eggs
Lunch yesterday...I ran across this in the March 2003 issue of Saveur Magazine. Since poached eggs over toast were one of the great comfort foods of my childhood, I had to try these out. Simple, but very tasty, and great for an under-the-weather afternoon.

Of course, I gather they're not supposed to be called gashouse eggs...According to the article, it's a mispronounciation of Gasthaus eggs, perhaps popular to serve at German bed-and-breakfasts or inns. They've apparently also been dubbed: eggs in a bonnet, bird's nest eggs, knothole eggs, one-eyed jacks, and many other unusual names.

My grandmother used to serve this in Chicago around 1970 (and, I suspect, a fair bit before). If I recall correctly, you broke the yolk before it was done cooking and let it finish cooking on the bread. There was a name for it, but it escapes me. it wasn't "egg in a hole" or Don Aitken's "gas house egg".

I'm a bit surprised to find "Toad in a Hole" recipes that are as you describe (Here in Canada, I think it normally would involve sausage- the toad should be meat, right?). Google finds a single recipe for "Golfer's Egg", but it uses two slices of bread.

It was egg in a frame in our household. It's been a long time since I had one. Must be ... oh, four days.

A specialty of mine. I seldom try cooking anything more complicated than toast, Campbell's soup, or Dinty Moore Beef Stew. Sometimes, though, when I just have to have an egg, I'll butter a slice of bread, cut a hole in the center of the slice by inverting a water glass and pressing down, and fry an egg in the resulting hole. The hole itself is also fried and eaten separately.
The advantage of this style of egg-cooking is that the white of the egg doesn't get all frazzy and crispy and that the entire thing can be turned with a spatula with less probability of breaking the yoke.

Wouldn't want the oxen to escape, innit?
