The first time we saw eggs in a basket was in V for Vendetta. It looked revolutionarily delicious. Then we tried a few times to make them, and it turned out one had to make more than a few eggs before success – more than your typical omelet. Here’s how you do it.
What you need:
• Shot glass
• Salt and pepper
1. Cut a hole in the bread by pressing the shot glass down through the middle of it. This creates the exact right space for your egg to get cooked in while simultaneously making you cool for cooking with a shot glass. Cheers.
2. Stick some butter in a frying pan – enough to coat the bottom of the pan so you can fry the bread. Put the bread-with-a-hole-in-it into the pan and fry it briefly (a minute or two) on each side, or until golden brown. Delicious.
3. Crack your egg into the middle of the bread. If your aim is crappy or you can’t make a good crack (likely), crack the egg into the shot glass you used to cut the hole. Then, pour it into it’s “basket.’
4. Fry the bottom for another minute or so, then spray the top side with cooking spray (so it doesn’t stick when you flip). Now flip it.
5. Season with salt and pepper. Start the revolution.
