Eggs, versatile and delish!

2 Feb

For me mornings mean eggs. Both me and the hubby love them. We like them anyway you can cook them. Ryan likes them a little more well done than I do, but that’s one of the best things about eggs, they cook so fast, so you can make everyone happy in a quick minute.

This morning I made one of our favorites, eggs in a basket. I’m not really sure of the origin of this easy, delicious meal, but it’s one that is sure to impress. Here’s the recipe:

Eggs in a basket
serves 2

2 slices bread
2 eggs
2 slices cheese, we use American but cheddar or swiss would be great
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat a griddle on medium heat and add in the oil
2. remove the center of the bread from each slice leaving about 1 inch from the crust, you can reserve the centers if you want to, but it’s not necessary
3. Add the bread into the pan and allow to toast slightly.
4. Crack an egg into the center of each slice and season
5. Let the egg set for about 3 minutes
6. Flip the bread and add the slice of cheese and finish cooking

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, that this will definitely make you feel like a king. Eggs have gotten a bad wrap recently, and I’m feel the need to dispel the myths. Eggs, like everything else, are fine in moderation. If you cook them in healthy oils, like olive oil, they can be a great addition to any diet.

If you are watching what’s going into your belly, just substitute use 2 egg whites for 1 whole egg.

Always thinking of the next meal
