I’ve been wanting to make eggs in a basket for a while now. Ever since I discovered them at Trails here in Griffith Park. They make them with pesto and parmesan and it is SO so good. So, of course, I decided to give it a go!
First, I took a wide mouth mason jar and cut out whole wheat bread into circles. (Pumpernickel bread is also really good.) If you have a 3 inch cookie cutter that would also work. You can roll them out with a rolling pin if you want, but I just kept it simple and left it like so.
*Also, don’t let the rest of the bread go to waste. I chopped up the scragglers and made croutons with it.
After greasing the muffin tin, layer everything together. Start with the bread, then pesto, then egg, and lastly sprinkle on some parmesan.
You can add salt and pepper to taste.
Then, just pop it in the oven for about 12 minutes and it’s done! So quick and easy!

Sprinkling some chives on top, makes it extra tasty. (These herb scissors by the way, are the best for quickly chopping herbs. I now can’t live without them. Usually, I will just chop them with a knife, but this makes it so much easier and quicker.)
And voila – eggs in a basket with pesto and paremsan. These are so tasty, simple and kid-friendly! I love that you can just pick them up and eat them with your hands. I find they also taste just as good cold.
