Baked Eggs in a Basket remind me of morning sunshine and a delicious beginning to a great day.
My twin sister will cringe when she reads this blog post. Sunshine was my nickname in high school which made me think of these delicious Baked Eggs in a Basket. Yep, I was quite the perky gal. Much too perky. Annoyingly positive.
Because my life at that time certainly wasn’t sunshine and roses, I made up for it by being positive. For me, being optimistic was survival.
Although perky is nice, looking back, I would have rather been sassy. Like my two sassy gals and these Baked Eggs in a Basket. I love sassy.
I’ve had several comments on this blog about the word “sassy”. Thankfully, they found the word as endearing as I do. Although, many have verbally pondered the meaning of sassy.
So I thought I’d share my definition of sassy. According to the dictionary, sassy has several meanings, naughty and nice. (this makes me giggle)
However, for my two sassy gals it simply means lively, bold, confident, a little cheeky and very clever. Emphasis on the clever.
I call these little lovelies “Baked eggs in a Basket”. They remind me of sunshine. Which reminded me of my nickname years ago. Which I hadn’t thought of for years. My sister will call me. She will cringe over the phone. I love my sister. She keeps me grounded. But if truth be told, my sassy gals got some of that sass from their Auntie.
Baked Eggs in a basket is perfect for breakfast weekdays or weekends.
It only a few minutes to assemble and a few minutes to bake. My youngest gal loves this dish with eggs that are scrambled, but I love them soft baked with a little chive and havarti cheese. I probably don’t make these the same way twice. I use what I have on hand, assorted fresh chopped herbs, Gruyere cheese and sometimes I sneak in a little Brie. Maybe I should have called this dish “Heavenly Breakfast in a Basket”.
