Egg in a Basket – Love Day Style

This was one of my all-time faves growing up. I loved it when my mom whipped us up some eggs in a basket! Since it was Valentine’s Day I felt like my super awesome husband deserved a super awesome Valentine ’s Day themed breakfast.

So eggs in a basket love day style it was!
Serves 2


Pin It

Ingredients:

4 slices favorite bread -I used wheat but a brioche would be amazing!

1 egg+ 3 whites

4 whole eggs

Salt & pepper to taste

  • Use a rounder shaped cookie cutter to punch a hole in your “basket” (bread) – I used a heart because it was Valentine’s Day morning
  • If you don’t have a cookie cutter in hand just use the top of a small glass.
  • Remove cut outs and set aside
  • Whisk together 1 egg & 3 egg whites season with salt & pepper
  • Submerge each piece of bread into the egg mix quickly. Flip to get each side coated evenly. Don’t forget your cut outs!
  • Once all your bread has been egged heat an oiled/buttered/cooking sprayed griddle on medium high heat.
  • Place 1-2 baskets (depending on the size of griddle) on hot griddle. Put your cut out on there too!
  • Crack an egg and put it directly into the cut out
  • Let cook a few minutes so the bottom of the egg has cooked through
  • With a large flipper carefully flip your egg in a basket and cut out.
  • Allow egg to cook but be careful not to overcook the yolk. Unless of course your into that sort of thing.
  • Once everything is cooked through to your liking plate it up!!
  • Use your cut out as a dipper
  • Enjoy!!!

    We make a version of this in our house too, except I’ve never tried dipping the bread in egg! Growing up we called it “The Special,” for some reason. I always loved picking out my own cookie cutter to use on the bread :)

  3. My grandmother from Italy used to make these, but not with the cute heart cut-outs. What a sweet idea. :)

    Such a great idea, I’m going to use if for my engagement anniversary next weekend! (we’re super newly wed.) My husband had set up such and elaborate proposal weekend last year- I’m so excited to return the gesture this year. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    My mum made these (not as pretty but don’t tell her that) and I make them for my boys. We called it Eggie In A Nest. So good when the egg yolk breaks.
