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.
1 loaf of fresh artisan bread
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 cup cherry tomatoes
4 slices of Havarti cheese
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.
