Greek Eggs in a Basket

Greek Eggs in a BasketThis morning I woke up craving a Greek omelet.  I’m usually so busy making Jackson’s breakfast in the morning that I just grab something easy for myself like a granola bar or apple.  I decided to treat myself today.  I had some bread on hand, so instead of just making a traditional Greek omelet, I created a modified version of eggs in a basket.  I thought I was treating myself, but of course as soon as I started to eat, Jackson came and sat on my lap requesting a bite.  Surprisingly, he loved it.  What two-year-old eats feta cheese?!  Apparently the same one who refuses to eat normal kid food like mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 eggs
  • feta cheese
  • monterey jack cheese
  • cooking spray
  • dill

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place slices of bread in greased baking dish.
  3. Using a coffee mug, create circles in the center of the bread and remove.  I hate to waste, so I saved the bread centers and served them to Jackson with jelly (he won’t eat the crust anyway, so it’s a win win). Greek eggs in a basket
  4. Crack one egg in each bread center.  Break up yolks if you don’t want super runny eggs. Greek eggs in a basket
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes.  This all depends on how you like your eggs.  I wanted mine to be hard, with no runny yolks, so I went with the full 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven.  Turn oven to a low broil. Greek eggs in a basket
