Do you like Toast?
If you answered yes to these questions then Eggs in a basket are for you. This super simple breakfast treat can look quite fancy if made with fancy bread. I can't remember where I learned how to make Eggs in a Basket but I do remember seeing them in V for Vendetta.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
•Eggs (as many as you want)
•Fancy Bread (enough for one slice per egg)
•Salt & Pepper not pictured
•Animal Totem (optional)
•Shot Glass (for cutting)
•Awesome Spatula (or any old spatula if you don't have an awesome one)
•Frying Pan (not shown)
•Fire (also not shown)
Step 2: Fancy Bread Prep
Using the bread knife cut off 1 inch slices of fancy bread. That is 2.54 cm for all those using the metric system. Make as many slices of bread as eggs you decided to cook.
Next using your shot glass press the open end of the shot glass down on the center of a slice of bread to create a hole in the center. Then remove the hunk of bread from the shot glass and set it aside if you want to toast it in the pan as well or sneak a prebrunch snack.
Step 3: Completely Optional Step: Operation Bread Goggles
Like I said completely optional but it will get a laugh from your photographer.
Step 4: Playing With Fire
Let the butter foam up. Once the bubbling slows down toss in your beloved bread goggles for the time for giggling has passed and the time for eggs in a basket is upon us.
Step 5: The Egg Drop
Make sure your animal totem is there protecting you from broken yokes and egg shell bits.
Now is the time to add a salt and pepper to taste.
Step 6: The Flip
Now it is important to note I like my eggs a bit runny. If you like firm eggs once you have flipped the eggs place a lid on you frying pan.
If I have not eaten the little bread rounds now is the time to add them to the pan to toast.
Step 7: Plate and Enjoy
Grab your fork and dig in time to enjoy your hard work. Don't forget to thank your animal totem.
