Egg in the basket


It is commonly prepared by cutting a circular or square hole in the center of a piece of bread. The bread, sometimes buttered prior to cooking, is fried in a pan with butter, margarine, cooking oil, or other fat similarly to how bread is cooked in a grilled cheese sandwich. When browned, the bread is flipped, and the egg is cracked into the “basket” cut into the toast. Alternatively, the egg may be dropped into the bread before the bread is browned. The time the egg is placed in the bread is dependent on desired consistency.

To obtain even cooking, the dish is often either covered or flipped while cooking. It is also important not to cook the dish at too high or low a temperature, or the bread may burn before the egg is fully cooked, or vice versa. It is generally seasoned with salt and pepper.
