Baked Eggs in a Basket

By Renee's Kitchen Adventures

Easy baked recipe for Eggs in a Basket, perfect for a crowd!


  • 2 TBS butter (I used whipped, salted butter)
  • 6 slices of bread (I used Sprouted wheat bread)
  • 6 large eggs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • freshly snipped chives, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment or silpat. (these will help keep the eggs from sticking to the surface of the pan).
  2. Lightly butter both sides of the 6 slices of bread. Arrange buttered bread on baking sheet.
  3. With a 2"-2 1/2" round cookie cutter, cut out a circle in each slice of bread. Arrange bread circles around the slices of bread on the baking sheet.
  4. Crack one egg into the center of each slice of bread where you made the cut out. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake for 6 - 9 minutes, depending on the degree of doneness you like your egg.
