Eggs In A Basket

This is one of my son's favorite recipes to make and eat! It's easy, inexpensive and kid-friendly. And it can be made the night before.
Eggs In A Basket

Eggs In A Basket

6 eggs
6 pieces of bread, with crusts cut off if you prefer, buttered on one side
Grated sharp cheddar cheese, around a cup
Salt and pepper to taste
No stick cooking spray

Leftover, cooked potatoes cut into small cubes, maybe a cup or so
Bacon bits or crumbles to sprinkle on top

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Very lightly spray a muffin tin, preferably a large muffin tin, with no stick cooking spray.

Place one piece of bread, buttered-side down, into each tin.
Break one egg into each tin. (It doesn’t matter if the yolk breaks.)
Sprinkle salt or pepper over egg.

Add optional potatoes, around a tablespoon, to each tin.
Add bacon bits or crumbles, around a teaspoon, to each tin.

Sprinkle cheese to your liking on top.

Bake until egg is done, approximately 10 -15 minutes, depending on size of muffin tin.

Remove from oven and let sit for a minute or two before serving.

Be sure to take some photos of your product and the smile on your kid's face!

Note: You can use a regular sized muffin tin but the food tends to overflow and harden or burn. If you use a regular-sized muffin tin, you will need equal pieces of bread and eggs for each “basket”.
