This past week I scored a tremendous deal at the grocery store on bacon and sausages. The bacon alone was a steal; $1.99 for 2 pounds! The sausage was also $1.99 but it was for 8 sausage patties. Still, a good deal. So, I decided to make breakfast for dinner. Not wanting to cook ordinary eggs, I decided to try something new. I had seen Eggy in a Basket before (most notably on the movie V for Vendetta) but have never made it. It's really, really simple. I toasted the bread first then had the middle child use a glass to cut holes in the middle of the toast. After cooking the bacon and sausages I drained off the grease in the pan. I did add a little grease back so the eggs wouldn't stick; I used about a tablespoon for each batch. I then laid the toast in the pan and cracked two eggs into the center of the hole. With the heat on medium, I covered the pan and left them alone until I checked on them about 3 minutes later. They turned out wonderfully and everyone liked this dish!
Here's a close-up:
And here is the whole dish. Yes, that is martini fixings behind the plate. Mr. Mary Cooks had a rough day at work so I made him a dirty martini to go along with his dinner.
