Eggs in a basket Turtley Mikey Due October 31; 2 kids; California 50611 posts

Okay, I've never had or made these before... but I get the main idea of it. I have a couple quick questions first... How do you make yours?



Do you use a certain kind of bread, like which ever you usually eat?
Do you butter the bread first?
Do you leave the eggs runny or cook through all the way?




Thank you to all who replies. :)

Never made it but I might be trying it soon!



But based a on quick search, it looked like regular sandwich bread with a hole in the middle. Melt butter in a pan, brown the bread, flip and repeat. Then crack a egg into it, and cook til the white is solid. From there your supposed to brown the center cut bread for placing on top of the egg as a lid. That's the skillet version.



There's also a oven version but it just doesn't sound yummy to me

I use my regular bread, Butter the pan, get it hot. punch a hole in the bread with a shot glass, put the bread in the melted butter, crack an egg, flip it one time, and enjoy.

We call those Popeye Eggs. I butter the bread first, cut the little hole out (I eat that), then I spray my pan lightly, and add bread. Allow that to toast a bit and then I add the egg. I cook it until it is over medium. Nom Nom

Do you all season it while cooking? Maybe with salt and pepper, seasoned salt?

Eggs in the nest! Yum! I butter one side of the bread and cut a hole out with a small glass. Then spray Pam in a skillet and put the bread not butter side down and crack the egg. Cook until the clear turns white, then flip

we used to make them all the time but on the barbeque ... then again this is Australia there isn't anything that can't be cooked on a barbeque.
