Eggs in Toast


I wish I could claim credit for this idea. Alas, I cannot, because it's Zoe's (one of the authors of Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, you may recall my obsession), but I can show you how it turned out for me!

Essentially, you roll out some dough, tuck it into a muffin tin, and slide an egg all cozy into the little toasty basket. I skipped the bacon but I did put some cheese in the bottom, and after I took this photo I added several hearty shakes of Frank's Red Hot sauce. I make myself an egg and some toast every morning so I have it down to a seven minute science... these take a little longer, but I think they would make a great addition to a brunch menu. Yum!

  1. Those look fanTAStic. I love eggs and toast and cheese! I'm making these this weekend : )

  2. I love eggs in any way, shape, or form. I've seen a similar recipe using ham slices, but this looks much more appealing. :)

  3. I love the way this looks. I will have to make a variation of this one day soon. :)

  4. Can I ask a stupid question? How do you make 'the dough'? (I am a baking noob)

  5. Now this is a show-stopper. :)

  6. Adele - I love eggs too, but HAM slices in lieu of bread? Eggs in a ham basket? Oh, shudder. Ham is not my thing.

    Murasaki - it's the basic light whole wheat dough from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, but you could use pizza dough or any wet dough recipe you're comfortable with. Pete Bakes has a good post of his experience with the dough (http://tinyurl.com/6kksbe) and the links above to the ABin5 and ZoeBakes blog should offer some guidance too!

    Rochelle & Adrienne - thanks! they were tasty, too :)
