"I really love this breakfast treat! Food is so much more fun when it has a whimsical vibe to it. I tried to do this once in a very thick brioche and it didn't turn out too well. So, be wary if you cut your own slice of bread not to make it too thick!"- lolavancleese

From: Kids in the kitchen Fold over a slice of bread. Take a bite out of the folded edge. Open the bread. There should be a round hole in the middle. Heat oil in skillet. Place bread in skillet. Break egg carefully so that it falls into the hole. Salt & pepper to taste. Fry until egg is cooked through, turning as needed. Posted to recipelu-digest by SRemers@aol.com on Feb 2, 1998

CreamyPuff 1 year agoI remember four years ago when I was 8 I made this from a strawberry shortcake recipe book and they called them 'Peek-a-boo eggs' they were absolutely great!????
kimbellow 1 year agoI discovered this dish in a movie. V for Vendetta. I didn't know for sure what it was it was only a quick shot nut Ever called it 'Eggie in a Basket' I couldnt find anything online so I assumed it was some classic British breakfast dish with a proper name and it looked delicious! I couldn't tell if there was a hole in the bread or not bit I experimented and figured it out on my own. I had no idea it was this popular. I love this recipe and just made it for my Boyfriend (who I usually make eggs over-medium with toast) and he loved it. His face lit up so sweet. Thanks for putting up this recipe for I finally can put a real name to this awesome breakfast.

Lorith 4 years agoI've made this in the past for the kids. I had forgotten all about this until I just saw this recipe again. The kids really liked it. I think I originally heard about it on nickjr, or noggin. I'll have to make this for the kids for breakfast tomorrow, I bet they'll be excited!
