BREAKFAST SERIES: Egg-in-a-basket

Your mum was right, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, no doubt about that. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, an office worker, or a young kid, as long as you are alive and kicking, you should eat breakfast. Well, try to at least. It boosts your metabolism, it gives you energy for the day, and simply starts your day right.

I’m here to help you start eating breakfast regularly, so that you can enjoy the numerous benefits of breakfast. So without further ado, let’s welcome the launch of the BREAKFAST SERIES, with a fun and easy recipe…

Presenting, Egg-in-a-basket! (Pardon the lack of interesting names, I simply could not think of anything appetizing to name this.. Eyeball toast sounds far from appealing, although it does resemble an eyeball :P)

Serves one

You’ll need:

2 slices of bread

1 egg

Ham & Cheese

Butter

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.

2. Take two slices of bread and butter each slice on one side.

3. Cut a hole in one of the bread slices (this will be the top slice)

4. Lay the cheese and ham on the bottom slice, then cover with top slice.

5. Crack an egg into the hole.

6.Bake in the preheated oven for 13 mins.
(The egg may look wobby and uncooked for most part of the baking, but don’t worry! It will turn out runny and delicious when 13 minutes is up)

Switch things up!
To healthify this recipe: use avocado instead of butter.
For a more flavorful substitute: Use pesto to spread instead of butter.
Mix ins to replace ham&cheese: Add mushrooms, peppers, bacon, anything you like!
(Don’t overstack the bottom layer though, or your egg may spill over)
