Eggs in a Basket - Hughes Style

Eggs in a Basket - Hughes Style

Estimated cooking/prep time combined: 15 - 20 minutes
Feeds 3 - 6 people


  • 6 Slices of toast - your choice on what kind
  • 4 oz sliced cheese (Colby jack is nice)
  • 6 eggs
  • 4-6 tablespoons of minced onion (the dried spice type is good, and easy)
  • 3 tablespoons of dried Chives
  • Oil or butter 
First Step: In a large frying pan, heated to medium, add one tablespoon of oil/butter. 
Second Step: Toast the slices of bread to get a gentle browning added. 
Third Step: Cut out a half dollar coin size circle out of the middle of each - if you have a donut shaping set, the smallest one can achieve this really easily for you. 
Fourth Step: Add two slices of toast to the pan (or more if there's room) and crack an egg into the center of each. Try and help the whites stay on top of the toast while the yolk drops into the center hole. 
Fifth Step: Add the onion and chives to this side as it fries. 
Sixth Step: Let the egg cook at least 1 minute, but do not flip until you've tested whether the egg stays put underneath. To test, use your utensil to lift it up slightly - if it breaks and spills some egg onto the pan, set it back down to allow it to cook and seal itself back in. If it does break, flip over. 
Seventh Step: Once flipped, immediately add a slice of your cheese to the cooked side.

Eighth Step: Let cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Ninth Step: Flip again onto the cheese side to help the cheese melt further - 15 to 20 seconds - then put on plate to serve.
