“Egg In A Basket”

One of my really great friends came over to show me how to run my new steamer oven. She showed me this great egg recipe. Since then I have been eating my “egg in a basket” for breakfast. I love cooking for people so you know this is my go to for morning guests. I can make this in less than 10 minutes. Everyone loves the presentation of their egg but most of all they love the flavor with the pesto and cheese .

You can pop it in steamer basket, take a shower and have a great breakfast with out the fuss. Great family morning breakfast, make it for your valentine or even for Easter brunch.

Ingredients:

Four 2″ ceramic flan dishes
4 eggs
4 tsp. pesto sauce
4 tsp.  Parmesan  cheese or other cheese (cheddar)
1 Tbsp. butter
1 colander
1 pot that fits the colander with lid
Black pepper to taste

steam with collander

Begin by putting the colander in the pot and filling the bottom with 4 inches of water (enough to barely touch the colander).  Bring to a simmer. While pot is warming, start assembling your egg baskets of love.  Coat each ceramic dish with a little butter (using a paper towel) to prevent egg from sticking.  Add a layer of Parmesan cheese on bottom then add layer of pesto. Next crack the egg into the dish.  Sprinkle pepper. Top with more pesto and a little more Parmesan.

Place in the steam bath colander and cook for exactly 8.5 minutes, cover to keep the eggs slightly loose.  Steam for 9.5 minutes for medium cooked eggs.
