Sometimes I get frustrated that my eggs won't hold together all pretty like and I can't find a cookie cutter to use as a mold and I don't want to make egg in the hole and I get sad. I always have onions! I am no longer sad!
The first time I ever saw eggs in a basket was in a black and white slapstick comedy from the 40s. I wish I could remember what the movie was. I was watching late at night probably about 12 years ago now and was so inspired by this snack they ate onscreen that I had to make it immediately. It has since become a standby snack that I will eat at any time of day. Nowadays I add Sriracha and maybe some quick sauteed greens and call it lunch. Excuse me, I have to go turn on the stove now.
