Egg-In-The-Hole

Alyssa is becoming quite the cook at our house. She can make several meals all by herself. Here she is making "Egg-in-the-holes" or "Peek-a-boo-sandwiches" 0r "Watkins Sandwiches" or whatever name you like to call 'em.

I called them Watkins Sandwiches when I was little. My friend had a recipe book and that's what they were named in it. I even wrote a report in 2nd grade all about how to make Watkins Sandwiches. :) Anyhow, any name you call them, these little diddies make a great meal.

Those are so good! I'd forgotten about making those. The kids will be making those for ME on Saturday. With bacon. Mmm...bacon...

Has your daughter made fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches (Elvis' favorite snack)? It sounds disgusting but DELICIOUS.

I'd forgotten about the good ol' Watkins Sandwiches!

Miki said...

Sigh...of course this is the first time I've even these. I think I'm getting tired of this. How many cool things do people do that I just don't know about!

Will you ask Alyssa if I can borrow her fantastic idea, and let my kids (and me...sigh) try this out? I think bacon sounds good too. Mmmm.

Great Job little Alyssa! I wouldn't expect anything less since the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree...

Watkins Sandwiches sounds awfully "stuffy"--I think I like egg-in-the-hole better :)! Like you asked.... Alyssa looks like she's doing a great job! Yay Alyssa!

And now I feel like a fried pb and banana sandwich (actually I just grill mine and dust them with powdered sugar and they ARE deish!).

Elena said...

Hmmm...I've never tried a fried pb and banana before. But I lik pb and toast so I'll bet it's pretty good. I likve the powdered sugar idea too. That makes anything good!. :)

Aubrey said...

What do those end up tasting like? French toast sort of?

Elena said...

Aubrey- It's just fancy toast and eggs. But it makes the kids want to eat it. Go look at Pioneer Woman Cooks or Lee Ann @ One Day at a Time. They both have some step by step instructions for these.

Watkins Sandwiches??!! I don't ever remember us calling them that. I remember us calling them Egg-in-a-Nest or Egg-in-Toast, but never a Watkins Sandwich.

Emily said...

I have never had those before, maybe I will make them for dinner tonight-- It's just one of those days!

What a great little helper! If I were so kind, I have a couple of wanna-be chefs in the house! I just don't like crunchy eggshells in my meals. I'm sure Alyssa's good at it by now though. I never knew WHAT to call them. My friend calls them window's. Yummy!!

Justin and Amber Manwaring said...

I can't even remember the last time I had those. What a great childhood memory. I guess I should pass it on to my kids, too.

Kat said...

Those slices of bread are huge! Or is it just the angle? I wonder if my kids would like those. They've never had fried eggs. Just scrambled. And hard boiled. Hmmm...that reminds me of a recipe that I can do for my blog...

Good job Alyssa!
