Eggs In A Basket

Whenever we decide to make a trip to Cracker Barrel for lunch, many of us take advantage of their wonderful breakfast menu that is available throughout the day. One or more of us always orders the meal titled Eggs In A Basket. It is an easy meal to make and looks very cute when creatively displayed on the plate. Here is a simple recipe for this meal:
All you need are 2 slices of bread, 2 eggs and butter.Butter both sides of the bread. Then use a round cookie cutter to cut a hole in the center of each slice. Place the buttered bread in a frying pan on medium heat until lightly browned on one side. Flip the bread slices and crack an egg into each hole. Once the eggs are cooked and the bread is brown, flip it over and cook for another few seconds. Remove to a plate and enjoy! To make a “face” with yolk eyes leave the eggs sunny side up!

Yesterday I took the studio to lunch at Cracker Barrel and we were so excited to see several of our programs in their Old Country Store! Currently they are carrying our Morning Song Rooster, Celebrate, and American Heritage programs. Roosters are always among our favorite images to paint, so we were excited to see a wall full of our Morning Song Rooster products. The Celebrate program is of a newer style for us and we love the bright colors and wide variety of items from cupcake cookie jars to cocoa-mixes and recipe card albums. Finally, the flags and patriotic lyrics featured in our American Heritage collection will be perfect for any July 4th gatherings. As always, we enjoyed a wonderful country meal together and look forward to visiting again soon to find more of our exclusive Cracker Barrel programs!
