Good Ole Fashioned Eggs In a Basket

Feeling a little nostalgic?

I don't know about you, but growing up, my mom always made eggs in a basket for me as a weekend morning breakfast--it's one of those unforgettable childhood memories.
Recently, I've shared a piece of that childhood with Matt, and we together have come up with what may be the most genius food invention yet! (Ok...overstatement...but you get the picture)

Introducing eggs in a basket with BREAD FILLED WITH CHEESE! delicious!
We stacked two slices of bread on top of one another and used a wine glass to cut a hole out of the middle for our eggs in a basket.
But when we did that...the "hole" became one piece of bread sealed at the edges (think Smuckers Uncrustables)
So we decided to put ricotta and freshly grated Parmesan between the two slices of bread before we cut it out--and it came out as a savory, cheesey, delicious Uncrustable! And then along with the eggs in a basket, we cooked them in a pan of butter until the bread got crisp.

Seriously, you can fill these things with ANYTHING! We're planning on experimenting with prosciutto, and with trying to put a quail egg (or just the yolk) inside...can't wait!

Serve with your favorite tomato sauce for a fun and delicious breakfast...or in this after work out dinner.
