12th June 2010 - Breakfast - Eggie in a Basket!

I watched V for Vendetta yesterday and obviously, the brilliant looking egg and bread thing that V makes Evey for breakfast and which is later made and described as Eggie in the Basket by Gordon Deitrich (Stephen Fry) caught my attention. It looked very interesting, and I just had to make it. This was the first attempt, and I sort of screwed the first one, but the next two were pretty satisfactory.

How did it look?

A posteriori?
  • The bread I had was a bit small, so when I cut a smaller hole, the egg spilled all over. For these two, I cut a large hole, but you can see that most of the bread is removed in this case.
  • In one case (the left one), I broke the yolk after filling it in the hole, so I got a uniform yellow colour and the yolk was well cooked. This is for those who like full-fried eggs. For the second bread, I did not break the yolk and in this case, you still have liquid yolk in the middle when you eat the thing, so this suits the half-fry fans. Normally, you dip the cutout bread in the yolk and eat it
  • I had this along with some peach yoghurt and fresh fruit. Happy Breakfast!


  1. I LOVE how it looks, bet it tastes even better. Taking instructions on how to make this from you asap!

  2. The looks are what made me want to make it in the first place!
