Egg in a Basket

This has become one of my favorite breakfast foods to make. Thanks to Sunday Baker's Egg in a Basket; It's different from the traditional version, and I love it!

Egg in a Basket
Egg in a Basket (derived from Sunday Baker)
  • 1 T. of butter, melted
  • 2 T. of maple syrup or honey
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 medium eggs
  • salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F.

Combine and mix the butter,maple syrup or honey, and a pinch of salt.

Melted Maple Butter
Cut out the bread slices in circles using a large circular cookie cutter or a large mouthed cup. I actually used my knife to cut around the cup.

Spread the maple butter mixture on the top side of the bread circles and put them in a muffin pan, forming a basket. Crack an egg into the bread basket and season with salt and pepper. 

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the egg is set and the edges are golden brown.
