For clarification, reread the headnote and step 1.

The recipe is making two toad-in-the-holes, each from half a bagel (cut side down) and one egg.

Author says to cut out some bread dough if needed to make it big enough to hold the egg. (You could also fry the extra dough and serve it along side.)

It looks like you do this one a a time with the split halves of the bagel. The inside part goes down on the frying pan, you slip the egg into the bagel hole from the top, and then you cover the pan so the egg cooks. Repeat with the second half of the bagel.
