- 1 slice sour dough bread
- 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, use one small biscuit cutter, or a small juice jar to press into the piece of sourdough bread. Twist slightly so the bread “cuts”, and then you can remove the cut out circle. Spread either margarine or butter on both sides of the bread, and place the bread into the pan. If you want an over easy egg drop the broken egg into the circle after you have toasted the first side of the bread. If you want an over easy egg, drop the egg into the circle as soon as you put the bread into the pan. Cook for about a minute before flipping the bread over onto the other side. Cook until the egg is cooked at your desired level of doneness.
Egg in a Basket are easy to make, and they make a great breakfast, now, if you don’t live near a Cracker Barrel you can still have a breakfast that tastes just like their does.
