Egg in a basket, toad in a hole, call it what you will, it’s a lazy cook’s delight that can be prepared in minutes and customized to meet any taste. While making a quick egg in a basket on my way out the door one morning, I lamented the fact that there was no cheese involved in this simple wonder. I stood over the pan as the egg cooked clutching a gorgeous wedge of 4-month Wall Street Gold in my hand. I thought back to one time when a few lucky bits of cheese escaped from my in-process grilled cheese. The little escapees quickly fried up and were deliciously sweet, salty, and crunchy. At that point the lightbulb went off and I knew that my egg’s humble basket would never be the same. The photos and captions below outline the ingredients and method.
