A family favorite, Egg in a Basket

I’m not a breakfast person usually and eggs are not my favorite, either (I know I’m weird).  But I do love a yummy over easy cooked egg and a glass of OJ every now and again.  I have come across the recipe for an egg in a basket (or hole) a ton over the years.  The first time I made these my oldest ate 3, so I knew I had a keeper of a recipe.  He is picky, beyond belief.   

You can go all fancy and use a sourdough bread for these.  But I rarely have anything fancier than wheat bread, in my house.  


Slice of Bread – for each egg in the basket 

Egg – for each egg in the basket


*Salt & Pepper  (I use salted butter, so I omit the salt)

You will also need something to make a circle, a cookie cutter works well.  I happen to have a biscuit cutter.  I have no idea why I bought it, I have yet to make homemade biscuits.  

Heat up a slice of butter until it gets nice and bubbly and coats the pan.

Cut out circles in your bread slices.  

Add a slice of bread to the bubbly butter.

Add one egg to the center and let it fry until you can see it cooked about half way through. I am not big on a really runny over easy so I fry it a little more cooked.

Flip and repeat on the other side. (I added in the little circle, because The Pioneer Woman does it and well because she does it. )

I have my 19 month eating these too, which totally rocks.  I love when my entire family enjoys the exact same meal.

  1. Great minds think alike. My post today was on the same thing. I totally agree with pioneer woman that you should cook the circle. It’s one of the best parts.

  2. I never made these because I thought the egg had to be over easy, which I don’t like. Yours looks perfect for me, thanks 🙂
