Ok, if I say so myself, I made an amazing 4th of July breakfast for my family. Last night I made a fresh loaf of sandwich bread in my Sunbeam bread machine. (See earlier post.) This morning I cooked a pound of fresh bacon we got from our friend Rick at the Farmer’s Market. He raises grain fed lamb and pork, and it is the best I’ve ever tasted. Then I made Eggs in a Basket with the fresh bread and lots of butter. Rounded out with fresh squeezed tangerine juice and coffee, and it was an amazing holiday breakfast.
Here is my easy recipe for Eggs in a Basket. Take 4 slices of bread and use a drinking glass to cut a hole out of the center of each slice. Fresh bread is best. Melt 3-4T butter in a large skillet. When heated, put 2 slices of the bread in the pan, and turn the pan so the bread soaks up the butter. Let it toast a few minutes and crack one egg in each hole. Salt and pepper to taste. Let cook 2-3 minutes to set the eggs and carefully turn each piece. Cook to desired doneness of eggs. Move to plate and repeat entire process with (including butter!) with next two bread slices and 2 more eggs.
Oh. My. Goodness. This was the freshest, most delicious breakfast ever. It’s easy, and it’s even fun to eat! I hope you enjoy Eggs in a Basket. Remember, the fresher the ingredients, the better the meal.
