Deven’s Egg Basket

Deven's Egg Basket


  • Croissant triangles (prepackaged or handmade)
  • Eggs
  • Cheese


  1. Use the croissant triangles to line the bottom of a muffin pan (one triangle per indentation).
  2. Break an egg into the indentations (make sure dough keeps the egg from touching the pan).
  3. Top egg with cheese.
  4. Wrap sides of triangles over the top of the egg/cheese to seal.
  5. Bake in the oven at 350F until light golden brown (about 15 minutes).

Deven’s Dropped Basket of Eggs


  • Croissant triangle dough (prepackaged or handmade)
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Options: salsa, bacon or sausage


1. Lay the dough out to fill the bottom of your muffin pan.

2. Fill the dough with the scrambled eggs and any options you’ve chosen.

3. Top the eggs with cheddar cheese (or any hard cheese of your liking).

4. Wrap the “wings” of the triangle around the top of the egg mixture to encase it in the dough.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F until a light golden brown (about 15 minutes).

Eggs in a Basket

I’m English.  As in VERY English.  I’m only the third generation of my family to be in America.  My Grams played a very big influence in my early childhood so I was instilled with very English traditions despite being in America.  When I started to cook, English food was at the top of my list of interests (yes, I’ll be adding a series of that shortly).  I LOVE “eggs in a basket” for breakfast and so does Bre!  She requests it often.  For those of you who don’t know what that is, I’ve included the more traditional recipe below along with my two other variations in the following entries.

Eggs in a Basket


  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Bread


  1. In a frying pan, add about a tablespoon of butter or enough to coat the bottom of the pan.
  2. Take a shot glass, measuring cup or any small diameter cup that you can use to remove a circle from the middle of the bread.
  3. Add the bread (with a hole in it) to the butter.
  4. Lightly brown on one side, add a bit more butter and flip to brown slightly on the opposite side.
  5. Crack open an egg and drop it into the hole in the bread.
  6. Allow the bread/egg to cook to your liking.  You can also flip the bread/egg to cook the yolk more thoroughly if you wish.  I also toast the cut out centers.
