Depending on size of family, you'll need:
First, break some eggs into a flat bowl or small casserole dish, add a little milk and add a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg. Beat the egg mixture to blend all. Pre-Heat 1 or 2 frypans on stove, med.-low heat, and melt oil or butter.
Dip the holed out, slices of bread in egg mixture, both sides and carefully lay in frypans. Crack a fresh egg into the hole of the bread in frypans; salt and pepper if desired. When the underside is browned to your liking, carefully flip the holed out slices of bread to finish cooking on other side.
If you like your eggs set, leave them in 2 - 3 minutes longer. I like them just when the "French Toast" is golden brown. Also, please, don't forget to dip the centers that you cut out, into the egg mixture and fry them too.
Place your "Toad in the Hole French Toast" on plates or keep warm in low oven till you're done.
Serve them with crispy bacon or breakfast sausage, drizzle your favourite syrup on all and enjoy your mornin' feast! I even make this for our supper every now and then, the wife loves them.
Note: there are no "serving amounts", cause it depends on the size of your family.

What a great idea. I love both just never thought of putting them both together.
I love this recipe! We have made it in our southern family for years. We call it "Bird Nests" because the hole in the toast that you put the egg into looks like a little nest. To make it look even more like a real bird's nest, we surround the egg with some homemade hash browns. Serve it and watch the smiles on the faces of your family... Enjoy this fun recipe!
