Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Just made my own version of this! Used 100 calorie sandwich thins and added provolone cheese and hot sauce! Can't believe how fast it was to make! No excuses anymore about skipping breakfast or getting it from a fast food chain. Thanks for posting this Submitted by:

It was really good, I liked to take the extra bread piece and cook it in the pan along with everything else. Its more calories though Submitted by:

As someone who does not like to spend too much time making breakfast, I found this recipe to be delicious and SO easy to make! I added a bit of shredded cheese on top with some salt and pepper. I will definitely be making this in the future. Thank you! Submitted by:

I love making these! I like to just use the egg white to save on calories though. If it's a day where I don't care, I'll use the whole egg. and I like to use a heart shape cookie cutter just to remind myself that I'm doing it all for a good reason! Submitted by:

I make this but I use RAISIN BREAD, believe it or not, it is a very very good combination! Many raisin breads are higher fiber and made with whole wheat. I cut out the center of the bread with a muffin or cookie cutter so that the middle can be pushed out easier. Submitted by:

I really liked this! Like another poster, I used some of Sara Lee's Delightful bread, and I added a wedge of Laughing Cow Queso Fresco and Chipotle light cheese for a total of 155 calories. Submitted by:

This is one of my favorite breakfasts to make!! I add salt and pepper to the egg before flipping it. I also grill the bread circles and use them for dipping into the yolk. Mmmmm! Submitted by:

Egg in the Nest...haven't had for a long time. I liked to whip the yolk & egg whites together with a fork, pour some into the hole & some over the top of the bread, then flip over for a more even cooking of the egg. Serve with a bit of sugar free syrup. Submitted by:

I love Egg in a Basket! Such an easy recipe and very low in calories. I used Sara Lee's 45 calorie delightful bread + one large egg, and it's about 120 calories with a spritz of canola spray. Submitted by:

Great recipe. You can also jazz it up by adding herbs and pepper before the egg is cooked. You can also top it off with some turkey bacon for some extra protein. We call it egg in a nest. Submitted by:

Cute and Yummy. If you can find Aunt Millies Potato bread in your area, its 35 calories per slice. With a medium egg it makes 1 egg in a basket roughly 90 calories. Submitted by:
