Eggs in a Basket

Okay, let me start off by admitting that this recipe was totally inspired by the movie V for Vendetta! I saw the movie a few years ago (if you haven't seen it, you should) and have been thinking about this recipe ever since. Hubby was actually the first to make this recipe at home about a week ago, unfortunately neither JD nor myself were home to try it. So this past weekend I decided to try making eggs in a basket myself. Not only is the recipe really easy to follow, but I promise the result will be really yummy too. You may never have plain toast again!
  • 2 slices bread 1-inch thick (I used French bread)
  • 2 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
Cut a hole in the slice of bread about 2" x 2", reserving the piece you cut out (you can toast these on the skillet too). Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the bread and the cut-out round in the skillet next to it. Crack the egg into the hole (you can also crack the egg in a bowl and pour it into the hole) and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until the bread is golden underneath; flip carefully and cook the other side until golden, seasoning with more salt and pepper (don't forget to flip the cut-out round). Serve immediately and Enjoy!
