Breakfast experiments: Rocky Mountain toast

Picture of Breakfast experiments: Rocky Mountain toast

Rocky Mountain toast, A.K.A. bird's nest, cowboy eggs, egg-in-the-hole, eggs in a blanket, the Elephant Egg Bagel, frog in a hole, gas house eggs, moon eggs, and one-eyed monster.

Rocky Mountain toast is an amazing dish that consists of a piece of bread with a hole in the middle filled with an egg and then cooked. Its amazing not only in its simplicity, but in the speed in which it can be done and the quality and taste of the results when done right.

I used to do the same thing with tortillas as a kid.

What do you do with the piece of bread you cut out?
I usually fry the hole with the rest of it then stick it on top of the finished egg-in-a-blanket like a hat.

Whatever you want to :D
poke a small hoke and put quail eggs?

I think that bread cutout might be a bit too small for those.

I think this would be great if you dipped the bread in a french toast batter first. double eggs!

I was using too small a glass to cut out the bread, and had trouble with the egg overflowing, so I just whisked it up and had an omelette version! Plus: you can add cheese, ham and tomato directly into it, rather than on top or halfway through the cooking process

You could also use a knife and cut a hole in it.
I also think the bread was too thin. BTW, what I meant when I said an omelette version solved it was that you could separate the mixture between two pieces of bread

This is a lot like what i put on my breakfast sandwiches. Looks so good. If I didn't just eat dinner, I'd totally go make one right now.
