Egg In The Basket

Egg in a basket is a very basic breakfast, it is easy to make and if you want to make egg and bread but doesn’t want to do the normal scramble or frying, this is another way to enjoy bread and egg. You can use any cookie cutter shape of your choice. This is breakfast ready in less than 10 minutes depending on how many you’re making.
