Greek Eggs in a Basket

Greek eggs in a basket | Easy breakfast recipe for moms | Eggs with feta cheese

This 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.

Greek Eggs In a Basket

Greek Eggs in a Basket


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


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place slices of bread in greased baking dish.
  • 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).
  • Crack one egg in each bread center. Break up yolks if you don't want super runny eggs.
  • 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.
  • Remove from oven. Turn oven to a low broil.
  • Top with as much crumbled feta and shredded monterey jack as you wish.
  • Return to oven on low broil for 2 minutes.
  • Remove and top with dill. Serve immediately.
