Fanciful Eggs in a Basket

Eggs in a basket are a special delight.   They look so great out of the oven, it may seem as if you spent a lot of time in the kitchen, but it is literally five to ten minutes of preparation.  Although, made many different ways, I prefer to give them a fancy touch by creating the “basket” from crepes.  However you like to make them, remember to serve them on beautiful plate and embellish with a couple of strawberries or grapes.  Your guests will love you for this out of the ordinary breakfast dish!

Eggs (can make as few as one and up to twelve)

9 in. French Crepes or wonton squares

1 Red or Green Pepper cut into fine strips



Parmesan Cheese

Muffin Pan

Brush muffin cups with butter or pam.  Cut one whole crepe in quarters;

place one quarter over one muffin cup for each egg.

Crack one egg in each muffin cup and place 2 red or green pepper strips criss cross over the egg; season with salt, peper and parmesan cheese.

Place in the bottom half of the oven on 375 degrees  for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the egg white is firm but yolk still liquid. Remove from the oven and let sit 5 minutes before carefully removing the baskets from the muffin cup.
