Eggs in a Basket with Havarti & Cherry Tomatoes

I don't know if I have ever had eggs in a basket. I have definitely seen them before. Super cute. But while white bread with a fried egg in the middle may cut it for a kid, not going to cut it for me. Or you. Unless you are really advanced 5 year old who is super awesome and reads my blog.

I decided to try and make an eggs in the basket adult version. By adult I don't mean not suitable for children under 18, in the back of the store, late-night adult eggs in the basket. Too much? LOL anyways, I mean a delicious breakfast dish that will leave you full and ready to start your day! Fresh herbs, tasty vegetables, and not-so-cheddar cheese make this dish suitable for any breakfast lover, who has had one too many bowls of cereal.

Eggs in a Basket with Havarti & Cherry Tomatoes

1 loaf of fresh artisan bread
4 eggs
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 cup cherry tomatoes
4 slices of Havarti cheese
Sea Salt
Butter or Oil to grease the pan

Slice bread into thick 1 inch slices, then using a sharp knife cut a 2 inch hole in the middle of the bread. In a large pan heat butter or oil over medium heat. 

Place bread in the pan, and crack egg into the hole. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then place under broiler for 4-5 minutes.  Remove from oven and lay sliced Havarti (I used tomato basil Havarti) over top. Place under broiler for 1-2 minutes, or until egg is cooked and cheese is melted and bubbly.

While egg is under the broiler, cut cherry tomatoes into quarters. Place in a small bowl. Roughly chop parsley and add to tomatoes, along with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine and set aside.

Remove egg and bread from oven and transfer to a large plate. Top with heaping spoonful of tomatoes and then feel really grown-up eating your breakfast.
