Simple Things Like Eggs in a Basket

Sep 11, 2012

Even if you only have the the most cliched breakfast item- eggs & bread at your disposal, you could  turn it into something fun like - Eggs in a Basket..

Step-by-step to Eggs in a Basket

Have bread (preferably 100% whole wheat) and eggs ready!!

Place a glass, cookie cutter, or something similar to create a hole in the middle of the bread. Press down the bread with little force and move the glass around (be careful not to break the glass)

Heat pan with some butter or cooking oil spray over medium heat and allow the bread to toast for 2-3 minutes on both sides

Carefully crack an egg on the center and let it cook for 1-2 minutes then carefully, flip the bread and let it heat for another 2-3 minutes or until the yolks are cooked
Season it with salt and pepper and enjoy
