Eggy in a basket (V for Vendetta)

Ok this is a lazy gourmet geek post, I must admit. Our grand plans this weekend was to recreate the “cake is a lie” cake from portal, but other things happened to pop up unexpectedly.


For those who do not get the above reference, eggy in a basket, also known as one-eyed Egyptian, frog in a hole, sunshine toast and egg in a blanket, was the meal that V cooks for Evie in the film. And as i have my own V, what better thing to make for him for a lazy Sunday breakfast.

Eggy in a Basket


You will need (depending on the number of people you are making this for):




salt and pepper

tomato sauce

cookie cutters or egg cups

1)   Using the egg cup or cookie cutter, cut a circle out of the middle of the bread.

2)  Melt some butter in a fry pan.  Put the bread in the fry pan.   Crack the eggs carefully into the holes in the bread.

3) Fry them a little while then turn it over.  When the egg is cooked to your liking remove from pan and gobble it while it’s hot! serve with sauce if you wish

4) Enjoy!!
