Mary's Eggs in a Basket

Submitted by: MNM20107

Introduction

This has been a long time favorite breakfast for me. This has been a long time favorite breakfast for me.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    * *Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread with Flax Oil, .5 tbsp (remove)
    * Sara Lee, Delightful Wheat Bread, 1 slice, 2 serving (remove)
    * Egg, fresh, 2 large (remove)
    * *Smuckers Low Sugar Strawberry Preserves, 0.5 tbsp (remove)

Directions

Preheat a flat non stick skillet on med heat. Spread the butter spread on all side of the bread. Use a glass or biscuit cutter to cut out a circle in the center of the bread. Put all four pieces in skillet and crack each egg letting it fill the open center of bread. I also sprinkle eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper. After a couple of minutes turn all pieces over, toasting bread and cooking the eggs to your taste. I prefer cooking eggs to an over medium so I will have some yolk to run onto bread. That should take a couple more minutes. Then I remove from pan and use the jelly on the little circles. Enjoy!!!
