We love to make these southwestern style eggs in a basket for breakfast on the weekend or even for a late night snack. They’re super easy to make and we almost always have the ingredients on hand. Egg in a basket is usually made with toast and has many other names like egg in a nest and toad in a hole. Equally delicious by any name, switching the bread for a tortilla is a fun alternative way to serve eggs.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese in a circle about an inch inside the edge of a tortilla.
Drop an egg in the middle of the cheese and add a dash of salt and pepper. Easy peasy!
