One Eyed Jacks aka Eggs in a Basket

One Eyed Jacks aka Eggs in a BasketThe first time I had this for breakfast was Christmas morning in 1996. I was living in Idaho with my two roommates, David W. and Dave M. We woke up in the morning, exchanged gifts then David W. made us this very delicious breakfast. Whenever I make this meal, I always think of that wonderful Christmas morning with two amazing guys. I have had a craving for this dish for a while now so I finally made it. It’s not only really quick and easy to make but kids think it’s really cool.

How to Make One-Eyed Jacks aka Eggs in a Basket

Heat a skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-low heat. Using a knife, cut a circle out of the center of the bread.

Being careful not to break the yolk, crack the egg and pour it into the hole of the bread.

Cook for 1-2 minutes then flip and cook for an additional 45-60 seconds. Remove from the skillet and serve immediately. Enjoy.
