I am a lover of breakfast food. In fact, I love breakfast food so much that I could eat it literally for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast for dinner is one of family favorites. Eggs are a huge part of my diet. After losing 160 in the past three years, eggs quickly became my go-to food for the protein and vitamin benefits. We always have hard boiled eggs in our refrigerator. We also go through about 24 eggs each week in this household because we are always finding new recipes. We took my all time favorite egg dish, Eggs in a Basket, made it healthier and just plain better by using Handsome Brook Farm Organic, Pasture Raised Eggs. We hope that you love this Eggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel Bread post.

  1. Gather all of your ingredients and cooking utensils. Using a circle cookie cutter (or a butter knife or a juice glass), cut a hole in each piece of bread.
  2. Heat your cast iron skillet and add a pat of butter to grease it so that your food doesn't stick. Eggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel BreadEggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel Bread
  3. Put your bread in the pan (we cook two pieces at once) and add half a pat of butter to the middle of each hole.
  4. Once the butter is very hot, crack your Organic and Pasture Raised Eggs from Handsome Brook Farm into each hole. Use your spatula to move the eggs and bread around to ensure they don't stick.Eggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel Bread
  5. When your egg is set, carefully flip over the bread/egg over being extremely careful to not break the yolk. Add the round holes that you cut into your pan to toast for dipping the yolk.Eggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel BreadEggs in a Basket Recipe | Made Healthier with Handsome Brook Farm Eggs and Ezekiel Bread

About Handsome Brook Farm

Handsome Brook Farm takes a modern approach to traditional farming methods. They have built their own unique supply network of small, organic family farms that offers everyone— from hens to farmers and consumers—a good deal. HBF hens live 400 to an acre (farmers acres of organic rotated pasture solely to their birds), get frequent health checkups, have special nesting areas spend their days soaking up the sun (gotta get that Vitamin D) and they produce these delicious, Organic and Pasture Raised Eggs.

  1. Candy

    We also call these toad in a hole. Use to be our kids favorite way to eat eggs. I use to fry up the bread we cut out of the center. So good brings back memories. 

  2. I just bought 2 packs of these eggs today! I got them at Sprouts. I’ve never had them but I thought they sounded natural, so I’d give them a try!

  3. This is such a classic recipe. My kids love it because they love a runny yolk. Gonna make these this weekend. YUM.

  4. This looks like a neat recipe! Although I am thinking my daughter would prefer to make this with a scrambled egg, since we tried eggs over easy (if I have that right, where you don’t break the egg). Sounds like the best of both worlds!

  5. This looks really good. I will try this next time I cook eggs. I’m lucky because I get my eggs from my cousin who has free range chickens.

  6. Rose Ann Sales

    This is such a good breakfast recipe. My family loves eggs so much and by having this kind of delicious meal in the morning makes their day a good day!

  7. brianne

    I love that you call it Egg’s in a basket! We call it Egg In a Hole! My kids love this! 

  8. I love this! I should do this tomorrow for breakfast!

    This looks really good. I need to give it a try. I love that this will be something different for my family for breakfast. I can’t wait to give it a try.

  12. I need to pick up some organic eggs, namely Brook Farm, if available. This looks like a great breakfast idea!

  13. This is one of the first things I ever learned to make. I am going to have to teach my kids this recipe.

  14. Now this sounds like an awesome idea! I would love to give this a go! Great way to keep off the day!

  15. Kim Croisant

    We call that eggs in a blanket. I do buy organic eggs or get them from farms. They are the best.

  16. Jeanine

    My husband is amazing in the kitchen. I should really try to get him to make this for me. Looks and sounds amazing.

    These eggs in a basket look delicious. I remember eating these when I was young. I had forgotten them until now

  18. I’ve never made this before (or tried it, even).  Looks fun and yummy  to make with my kids.

    That would be great for breakfast tomorrow! Healthy and delicious! I always choose organic when I buy eggs. It just makes me feel good thinking the eggs I serve my family are of better quality.

  23. Becca Wilson

    This is one of our favorite breakfasts. My kids think that it is so fun that the egg is inside the bread!

  24. Dogvills

    I want to try making this for breakfast tomorrow. However, I would want my eggs well done. I’d just leave them in the pan for a longer time until I am sure the yolks are no longer runny. Or maybe I can scramble the eggs first. That’s what I’ll do!

  25. robin rue

    My husband loves eggs in a basket! Actually, it’s his favorite breakfast! I will have to try it with these eggs next time I make it for him 🙂

  26. My son loves when I make him this. I use a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and have the egg cook in it. Fun to eat and they like to dip the bread in the egg!

  27. I love simple recipes like this that’s so fun to make and it’s even more fun to eat! I think it’s also going to be a hit with the kids!

  28. Amy
