Photo A Day - Breakfast

For the past year I've been very frugal with our food budget - alright as frugal as I can possibly be which is to say some months I'm better than others. I cut out as many processed foods as I could which sadly included cereal and bread. Although I occasionally add a box or two of cereal and a couple of bags of bread to the grocery cart, more often than not breakfasts around here include oatmeal, pancakes, eggs and shakes. I make most things from scratch now which benefits us on two levels: better food choices and a smaller grocery bill.

When we have sliced store bought bread I love making eggs in a basket. Cute, convienent and delicious, this is my favorite way to eat over easy eggs.

So pretty and yellow! Yellow makes me happy in the morning.

Mmmm...toasty! We use the cuts outs to dunk in the yolk.

A dash of salt and a sprinkle of pepper and I am good to go!

This is day three of a month long Photo A Day Challenge hosted by fatmumslim.

  1. I'm glad you call them "eggs in a basket"." My mom used to make these for me all the time but as I left home and went out into the world, I learned people call them all manner of things. The worst is "frog in the hole". Are you kidding me? That's not the name of something edible.

    1. I've heard "toad in a hole" as well. Just seems a bit creepy to me. I'm fairly certain I would never have eaten them or tried them at all if the first name I learned for it had an amphibian in it!

  2. That looks so yummy! We do a version where you put the whole slice of bread in a muffin tin and drop the egg in the center and bake. no name for it, though :)

    1. I saw a recipe for an omelet in a muffin tin that I've been wanting to try - I think the base is a piece of bread. Hmm. Sounds good!

    1. They are so delicious! I feel like I should burst into some sort of Green Eggs and Ham recital to encourage people to try them!

    1. Are you allergic or just don't like them?

    2. We don't eat eggs by choice of lifestyle.
