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.



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.


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.

I just tried this--I left my bread in a minute and flipped it over to brown a little, and then put my egg in and again flipped it. I had a piece of lunchmeat ham on the side. mmmm delicious!

I'm really dating myself, but when I was a kid in Wyoming, we called this breakfast treat "Toad-N-Hole".. we really loved it.
