Egg in the basket


  • 2 slices of thick white bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 25g butter


  1. For this recipe the bread should ideally be relatively thick slice to accomodate the egg without overflowing.
  2. Cut a circle or any shape you like in the centre of each slice of bread, this should be big enough so that the egg does not overflow.
  3. Heat the butter in a frying pan over a low heat, add the bread to the pan and crack an egg into the centre of the bread.
  4. Once the egg is set on one side flip the bread over to cook the other side.
