Eggs in a Basket is also known as A Tisket A Tasket, like the nursery rhyme (“A tisket a tasket, a green and yellow basket…”) But no matter what you call it, this is a simple, tasty and fun breakfast recipe that uses ingredients you likely keep on-hand.

Ingredients

Directions

Cut a circle in the middle of each slice of bread. Melt the margarine (or use butter) in a frying pan, using ½ tsp to 1 tsp per serving. Place one or two bread slices in the frying pan, making sure the bread stays flat to the pan. Crack the egg into the hole in the bread, and cook until the egg is done. Place on a plate and serve with syrup.

Notes

My dad used to make eggs in a basket for us as kids and now he makes it for the grandkids. It’s the one time of the day we stopped what we all were doing no matter what just to have family time together.
