Blackstone Griddle eggs in a basket

Eggs in the hole, Eggs with a hat, Eggs in a frame, Toad on the Road, Toad in the Pond, Bird’s Nest, Eggs in a Basket, Bullseyes, Egg surprise, Eggs in the corral, Cowboy toast, stray eggs, Goofy Toast, Chicken in a basket, Popeye eggs…

Your family will love them no matter what they are called.

How to make eggs in a basket?

This is a simple breakfast but I will give you some tips to make it great.

Butter both sides of the bread. Do this before you take out Wednesdays. Do not be timid.

You can cut the middle of the bread using a serrated knife to make multiple pieces.

If you don’t have good fins toast one side of the bread and then turn the other side to cook the eggs. Place a lid or dome on top of the mixture and let it cook until the whites have set.

Spices are essential! Eggs are best friends with salt and pepper!

We can’t be friends if you don’t make cut-outs or roast them in the yolk.

What bread is best for egg in a basket?

The best bread is one that you love and is large enough to hold a whole egg. This will leave bread, not just crust. Texas Toast is great for this.

Can I make it with scrambled eggs?

You definitely can make scrambled eggs using blackstone griddle! There are a few children in our family who haven’t had fried eggs for years. These are equally good with scrambled eggs and fried eggs. Feel free to experiment with what works for you and your family.

Which type of egg is best for the eggs in the Basket?

We used to have chickens once upon a time. Fresh eggs are something I loved about chickens. We had them for around 5-6 years. It replaced chickens completely – almost always.

The hens were killed by wildlife after we moved, but the eggs from the farm are still my favorite. If you have chickens in your garden, get extra eggs. They are well worth it.

Today, I am trying to find “good” eggs at a grocery store. However, none of the eggs were fresh from the bird.

Purchase the best eggs that you can afford and, if you’re brave, consider having chickens in your backyard.

The size of the bread you choose will also affect what kind of eggs you get. Small eggs = small bread

What do you do with the Blackstone Egg in the Hole?

It was done with bacon and Blackstone. Next time I will make a Traeger No Flip Bacon and use all the grid space for some hashbrowns. If you don’t have a pellet grill, this method can be used on bacon in the oven.
