Egg in the _ _ _ _ _ _
There are a quite a few ways to cook an egg…certainly everybody’s familiar with scrambled, sunny side, over easy, poached, boiled (hard or soft), Benedict, omlettes, crepes, quiches, a whole range of fill-in-the-blank and eggs, deviled, Mexican favorites like huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos, frittatas… I like just about all of these varieties but one of my all-time favorite egg dishes is one that goes by multiple names including Rocky Mountain toast, Cowboy Eggs, Bull’s Eye Eggs but in my house simply as Egg In the Basket.
This dish was passed down through the generations in my family and was always a special treat for a leisurely weekend breakfast. To my great surprise some good friends of ours recently revealed that not only had they never tasted Egg in the Basket but had never heard of it by any of its varied and sundry names. That was the inspiration for including the recipe – the easy step-by-step slide show format was my son’s idea. Hope it inspires you to enjoy some soon.
