Are you a fan of the movie, V for Vendetta? We are! HUGE fans, in fact. After watching the movie three times in two weeks, Adam decided that he wanted to try to make the famous “eggy in a basket”. On top of that he demanded (that’s right demanded! hahaha okay more like suggested) I blog about it 🙂 So, thanks to Adam you have this very simple recipe for eggy in a basket!
I do want to note that Adam is not big on having a soft yellow in his eggs so he made this eggy in a basket recipe with a hard yellow. If you like your yellows soft or runny, cook your eggy in a basket for less. The trick is to start with a hot pan so you can achieve the nice crunchiness of the bread.
- 2 eggs
- 2 slices of bread
- salt and pepper to taste
- Round cookie cutter (optional)
- With a cookie cutter or knife, cut out a hole in the bread slice. My hubby likes to cut out a square but I think its supposed to be round. Make sure the hole is big enough to fit most of the egg.
- Butter one side (or both. If you butter one side, cook the buttered side down first) of the cut bread slice, grease a skillet and pre-heat it at medium heat. When the pan is nice and hot add the bread slice and crack the egg in the hole.
- When the egg has set flip it and cook the bread slice on the other side until the egg is fully cooked. My husband likes to scramble the yellow a bit in the pan (before the egg sets) but that is his personal preference.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy! 🙂
