Heart-Shaped Eggs-in-a-Basket

10 Mins
Potato Bread
Made With
Potato Bread


2 Slices Martin’s Potato Bread

2 Eggs


Tools: Heart-shaped cookie cutter

Optional: sliced cheese, deli meat

Optional: spices

Serves: 2


Step 1

Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter or knife, cut a heart-shaped hole in the center of the bread, setting the cut-out aside.

Step 2

Melt some butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place the slice of bread and the cut-out in skillet and toast lightly, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Crack the egg into the hole, seasoning if desired, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add more butter as needed to brown and crisp the toast. Flip the egg and cut-out, seasoning the other side if desired. Cook another 2 minutes or until egg is cooked to preference.

Note: for a sunny-side-up egg, toast the bread on one side, then flip before adding egg into center.

Step 4

Transfer egg-in-a-basket to a plate. Serve toasted cut-out alongside for dipping into the yolk.

Step 5

Repeat steps 1-4 with second slice of bread and egg.

Variation: Instead of a single slice of bread, you can try making this as a sandwich by first layering two slices of bread with deli meat and cheese before cutting out the heart shape. Then follow the rest of the steps accordingly.
