Egg in a Basket

Okay, so this is so simple that it's more of a meal idea than a recipe, but I eat this dish for dinner as well as breakfast.

2 slices sandwich bread
2 teaspoons olive oil (or butter)
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper

Cut a hole in both bread slices. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bread slices side-by-side. Carefully crack an egg into each bread hole (some white will remain on top). Season with salt and pepper. Cook until eggs are somewhat set and bread is browned on one side, then flip over and cook the other side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Try topping with salsa or shredded cheese.


  1. Let's call 'em what they really are - "One-eyed Monsters"

  2. Whatever you call them, these are a favorite of mine! Olive oil, eh? Maybe I should try that instead of...umm, butter *looks at the floor in round-bellied shame*
