LOL! Let's see - frog legs inside a potato patty or such. Get it - "toad = amphibian" and "hole = something from the earth/soil".

Am I even close?

Just introduce the thread - someone probably knows about it and if not, it will be at least a learning thread.

We used to make Angels on Horseback over a campfire as an appetizer when I was growing up. We wrapped raw bacon around large cheddar cheese cubes and cooked them on a stick over the campfire.

When the cheese melted and bacon got crisp we pulled the stick out of the fire and wrapped the "angel" in a slice of fresh bread.

After dinner we toasted marshmallows and made S'mores.

Mom cooked Toad in a Hole for us for breakfast quite often. Dad made us the same thing but he called it "Sailor on a Raft" and a family friend called it "Adam and Eve on a Raft."

Isn't toad in a hole an egg cooked in a piece of toast?

I used to make sunshine eggs for my daughter. It was a piece of toast with an egg cooked sunny-side up on it.

Mom cut the center out of a slice of fresh bread with a biscuit cutter, making a perfectly round hole. Then she buttered one side and placed it in a pan and cracked an egg into the hole. Then she fried the bread and egg, flipped it and fried the other side. Then she served it with grated mild cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

Our family friend cooked the same thing only called it "Adam and Eve on a Raft" and if he cooked it over easy it was "Adam and Eve on a Raft Wrecked."

I have seen devils on horseback -- not angels! -- in foreign-language phrasebooks, meant for people ordering in restaurants, but they have never explained what was in them. I believe they are, what, German or Polish? I also learned that way that Germans never call French toast by that name -- they call it "poor knights."

DG, I think we desperately need a Toad in the Hole thread. In Britain they are sausages baked in batter.

I've seen several other variations through the years - what versions have you cooked or encountered (or are these hors d'œuvres completely foreign to you)?
I see the bacon-wrapped dates at weddings all the time, but I don't eat them. Also, bacon-wrapped figs.
