Eat In. Eggy in a basket.

Made famous by the Wachowski duo's 2005 "V for Vendetta," the "eggy in a basket" is a simple breakfast that takes the class toast, egg combo and makes them one.

The recipe is almost too easy, but is a kind of fun alternative to a fried egg on toast.

What you'll need:

One egg for every piece of bread.
Salt and pepper to taste

What to do:

1. Using a glass, cut a hole in the center of a piece of bread.

2. Drop the bread onto a skillet that has been warmed with a little bit of butter.

3. Quickly crack an egg, and drop into the hole of the bread.

4. I would put the fire on medium heat to not burn the bread.

5. When the egg white is no longer translucent but white and seemingly solid, flip the bread; do this until you're sure the egg in the center is cooked.

This recipe always bothered me because it seems to waste the the circle of bread you cut out earlier, but you can always toast it in your buttered skillet and eat it along with your eggy.
