Breakfast: Eggs in a Basket, Egg in a Hole, Bird’s Nest……

I know I have been MIA for a few days.  It has been crazy busy here and I finally have a chance to blog.

One of my Hubby’s favorite food for breakfast is french toast, so I decided to kind of do some french toast but just a little different.  Same ingredients just made differently.   I made what some call eggs in a basket, egg in a hole or bird’s nest, what do you call them?  It was super yummy.

Eggs In A Basket

  • 4 pieces of whole grain bread
  • 4 eggs
  • butter
  • sugar
  • cinnamon

Heat your griddle skillet at 300 degrees.  Cut a 1 to 1 1/2 inch hole into the center of your bread.  Butter your bread and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon on both sides. 

Melt a TBS of butter on the griddle. Place bread on the skillet and crack egg into the hole.  Let it cook for a few minutes and flip.  I cooked it till the yoke was still soft but not runny.

I served it with some cooked prosciutto and drizzled with maple syrup.

My co-worker had just come back from North Carolina with some real maple syrup it was perfect over the french toast.   This is a great and easy breakfast.

    try this
    take the bread, egg, and some salt and pepper and throw them in a skillet for five minutes and see what comes out!????

    Instead of cinnamon and sugar try some garlic salt. Just a little will go a long way! Makes it more of a hearty flavor. I’ll have to try it though with cinnamon and sugar :) Thanks!

    My mom used to poach eggs in milk and serve the softly boiled egg and hot milk over toast….add some salt and pepper and this is “to die for”.
