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
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
