Egg in the Basket

I love eggs in the basket- whole eggs cracked into a cut-out piece of toast and baked until it is golden. My mom always made them for me. My favorite part is eating the crispy crouton cut-out that bakes alongside the egg. It’s so good. Around Valentine’s Day, I saw a lot of blogs featuring heart-shaped eggs in the basket. They were so cute. I couldn’t believe I had never thought of that before.

So I sliced a piece of homemade challah, and searched for a cookie cutter that would fit the slice. A dog bone was perfect. If you didn’t think I was nuts before, you certainly do now.  To make your own, preheat your oven to 350ºF, and put your cut-out bread on a greased baking sheet.

Crack an egg into the hole and bake it all for about 10 minutes until the egg whites are fully cooked. My egg was a little squished, but that didn’t stop it from being delicious! I love peeling the bread apart and using it to eat the egg. Yum. What a comforting little snack or breakfast- even if it did look like it was better suited for Stella pup.

  1. I, too, love egg in the basket. You’re mom and uncle also had it when they
    Were kids. Guess what pop pop and I are having for breakfast today? You
    Guessed it. Unfortunately, being someone did not come in with a homemade
    Challah, ours will be made with sliced potato bread and a small juice glass
    Will be used as a cookie cutter.

    Love you all so much
