I don't like syrup, so french toast, pancakes and waffles were not something I ate either until much later in life. Now I eat them, but without syrup.

    French toast is really good made with some Christmas egg nog.
    Eggnog French Toast is a tradition in this house on Christmas morning.

    French toast is only sweet if you put sugar in it or on it.

    My husband who LOVES french toast, doesn't like it sweet, so he makes it with just eggs and milk.

    If I make it, I add a little vanilla to the egg and milk mixture.

    Using egg nog does make it sweet, but it doesn't make it taste like egg nog. It just makes some darn good french toast.

    I typically do NOT order french toast in restaurants as they insist on making it as sweet as possible. The only exception to that was in Cracker Barrel in the fall when they had a fall cinnamon french toast that looked wonderful. And yes, it was good, but it was sweet and swimming in butter. Was served with 3 slices of toast and I barely could eat 1/2 of one slice.

    But if I'm going to eat egg and toast, I want egg in a basket (slice of bread, hole in the middle, egg cracked into hole and the hole thing cooked in a skillet, flipped and cooked on both sides.)

    Egg in a basket, huh? Interesting. Is the yellow runny?

    Mine is because I like it that way, but you can cook the yolk hard if you want.

    I spread a little butter on both sides of the bread, use a large glass to cut out the whole, put the bread (and the cut out piece) in a frying pan that I sprayed with Pam, crack the egg in it. Cook it on one side, flip it over and cook on the other. Serve with the now toasted hole you cut out.

    I love eggs with firm whites and liquid yolks. Not runny or gelatinous - just still in a viscous liquid state.

    My favorite is poached. Second favorite, a 6-minute soft boiled egg. Both with buttered toast for yolk dipping!

    This is how I like my eggs. I like to put it on top of a piece of toast and eat it that way.

    Eggs in a basket! That's what my parents called it, but out here it's called "toad in a hole." Why? I don't know. I get the "hole" part, but I don't get the "toad" part. The egg is from a chicken, and it looks nothing like a toad. Nor even remotely like a frog.

    I've heard Toad in a hole and wondered the same thing. I like eggs in a basket as it sounds more appetizing that toad.

    I am all about the runny yolk as well for toast dipping.

    we call it egg in a hole. Basic, descriptive, and not creative at all....but very yummy and quick.
