Did Guy Fawkes eat Egg-in-the-Basket?

Eggs in a Basket

You know you are a foodie, when you watch a movie like V for Vendetta, and what you take away from it is: “That looks like a tasty breakfast treat!” That’s what happened to Mark and I the other night. The morning after watching the movie, we had a hankering for an “Egg-in-the-Basket” breakfast!

So, it’s easy. Fry up some bacon and put it aside. Take a piece of bread and use a glass to make a hole in the middle of the bread. Fry the bread in the pan that you cooked the bacon in (or, if you are into the low fat version, don’t use bacon grease, but lightly butter the toast). Crack an egg and drop it into the hole of the bread. Flip it and serve!

It’s fun to play with food. You don’t need to wear a Guy Fawkes mask to make this though.

    A new twist on this is being served at Morning Glory here in Toronto.
    Make one slice as an “Egg in the basket” (or Toad In the Hole… as my dad calls it). With the other slice, grill it on one side, flipt it over and top with a smear of dijon, a slice of ham and a slice of swiss cheese.
    When the egg is done bring the two slices together to make a Johnny Screech Sandwich.

    Brandon and I did the exact same thing (sans bacon of course) after we watched that movie. It is yummy!

    I used to make this all the time growing up, it’s funny that you noticed it in “V” as well.

    Holy crap I saw this on v for vendetta as well. I wonder if it would work without cutting the hole?

    Chickens and other egg-laying creatures are widely kept throughout the world, and mass production of chicken eggs is a global industry. In 2009, an estimated 62.1 million metric tons of eggs were produced worldwide from a total laying flock of approximately 6.4 billion hens.*’
