What do you call that breakfast dish where you cut a hole in a slice of bread and cook an egg in it? I have always called it egg in a basket, but it’s intriguing that this simple dish has so many names. It is also known as frog in a hole, one-eyed jacks, bird’s nest, cowboy eggs, one-eyed monsters, eggs in a blanket, and bull’s eye eggs (the list goes on).
If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for circles and so I decided to take “bull’s eye eggs” to the next level. For a true breakfast eater, you need something more substantial than just eggs and bread:

It’s best eaten in slivers like this so you get a bite of everything. This is definitely sharable like a pizza, or you can eat it all yourself, like I did.

We always called it 'Honey Money Bread,' I guess because the egg hole is kind of like a dollar bill. And we'd drizzle honey over top.
