As you've probably heard, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is because through it, you get to replenish your body and provide the fuel it needs to begin the day. Needless to say, your breakfast should be nutritious if you want to start your daily routine the right way. However, this doesn't mean that it can't be fun or tasty, too! For instance, eggs in a basket bring in the flavor and the right nutrients. If you'd like to learn how to prepare them, keep reading.

How to Make Eggs in a Basket

Get the Right Ingredients

The secret to making delicious and healthy eggs in a basket is picking the right ingredients:
  • Whole grain bread
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Extra flavor (e.g. seasoning, mushrooms, bell pepper, syrup, berries, etc.)

Follow the Steps

  1. To create the basket, you need to make a circle in the center of a slice of bread. To do this easily,  press down the round opening of a glass onto the bread. Remove the circle when you finish.
  2. Now it's time to give the basket a crispier texture and a golden coloring. To that end, you should pour a tiny bit of vegetable oil on a frying pan and let the bread toast in it for a bit.
  3. For the next step, you need to crack the egg and place it right at the center of the circle in the bread.  Allow it to cook for a bit, and then (carefully!) turn it over so it can cook on the other side, too.
  4. To finish this easy and tasty recipe, place the egg in a plate and add all of the seasoning or added flavor that you want to it. You can make it a sweet or salty breakfast depending on your preference!
