Eggs In The Toronto Basket

Alright, lame subject line, but it caught your eye! :P
Anyway, I'm looking for a place where they serve those English style Eggs in the Basket here in Toronto.
They cut a hole in the middle of the toast and serve the egg inside and I think, though I could be wrong, it's fried in bacon fat.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a better description:
Oh! And at this link, there's even a picture:
Where in Toronto can I find a restaurant with this on the breakfast menu???
Yah I think some people call it 'toad in a hole' or something like that. haha, there are lots of places that serve this.. one that I know for sure is 'eggspectation'. Now, i just know they do it, but dont take it as a recomendation, I've never been there, and it IS a chain, so dont expect anything gourmet.
Ha ha..It is so funny (to me anyway) that other people know about this dish. Growing up my gran made it for me and I thought it was some big (very delish) family secret.
I just call them egg in a hole since didn't know it had a fancier sounding name.
I have never come across a resto in TO serving these. I am sure however, most greasy spoons could do it up for you if you asked.
I amke them at home now and just pop a hole out of the middle of toast with a drinking glass...nothing beats fried bread!
Aw, c'mon, this isn't good. It's like the Where's Waldo of the egg kind. :(
Except even more difficult! lol
I must find zee egg!
I have had the bar one toad in the hole & boy is it yum. They offer many variations of it & they serve it will a spicy "hollandaise" more like mayo. nevertheless - it is slightly refined and quite divine. And do order the coffee, it cures anything that ails you for the night before...
Aren't these toast soldiers? You cut out a hole in bread in whicy you fry eggs, and then then dip the left over bread into the yokes? I highly recommend the toast soldiers at Easy, on the south side of the street on the last block of queen west. Come to think of it, I recommend almost everything on their menu.
I think, however, it's something best done at home, where you can have the runny yoke extra hot.
