As it was recently bonfire night, I thought in honour of the awesome night I had with an author, a white Labrador and a vampire, I would give a recipe for eggs in the basket. This wont seem an odd thing to do if your one of the cool kids who recognises the almost exact quote below:
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V. I also make a fantastic egg in the basket despite my gnarled hands.
Anyway, back to the recipe:
- 1 thick slice of bread, preferably white
- 1 egg
- A good-sized knob of butter
- Cut a circular hole in the centre of your bread, I find a tumbler glass makes an adequate sized hole.
- Heat a large frying pan on the hob and drop in the knob of butter
- Once the butter is sizzling, lay the bread in the pan and break the egg into the hole.
- Fry for a few minutes, allowing the egg to cook for as long as possible, and flip. Try to use a wide spatula for the flip if you can.
- Once the under side is cooked, serve to your nearest and dearest anti government friends hiding out in your secret lair.
