Popular Egg Dish in Minnesota Has 14 Different Names

I grew up eating this delicious feast and my favorite part of the entire meal were the buttered circles that were cut out and fried up.  I also liked my yolk squishy.  I know there is a real term for that but squishy is what I go by.  I'd pop the yolk in my mouth and let it squish out and then I'd eat the bread part.

Our family called this dish an "egg in a hole" but when I was talking about it the other day and mentioned that name, the person I was chatting with just had a blank stare.  Turns out, we both knew the dish but we called it two different things.  I had to ask and see if there were other names for this dish and turns out, there are a bunch!
