Though it pains me to see a sweet face on my plate looking so sad and resigned to his fate of being eaten, I have to do what I came here to do and dip him in over medium egg yolks. It's a cruel world.
I know I just featured eggs in a basket here a while back, but that one wasn't cut in the shape of a heart with little ketchup hearts! If this were my breakfast those hearts would be made of Sriracha but I'm willing to let it go this once. You can thank me later for making your Valentine's Day breakfast one to remember.
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.
