Egg in a Basket

My family is all about eggs lately!  We have been buying 36 at a time at Costco!  I love eggs and my 5 year old loves his eggs!  So we tried a new recipe today, that I am calling Egg in a Basket.  So before we had children, my husband and I spent a weekend at a Bed and Breakfast.  We had this amazing breakfast which (6 years later) I decided to re-create this morning!  All you need is an egg (I would recommend medium eggs or they will overflow), piece of bread (I used italian), butter, salt, pepper, some cooking spray, and a muffin pan!

Simply spray your muffin pan with cooking spray.  Take your bread and cut off the crust.  Butter both sides of the bread and then fit into the muffin pan to make a "basket".  Crack the egg inside the "basket".  Top with salt and pepper.  Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350F.  I cooked mine for 15 minutes since I like my yolks completely done (yeah I'm weird like that)!  Enjoy!
