Grilled Cheese with an Egg in a Basket

Grilled Cheese and a what?

I said, a Grilled Cheese sandwich with an Egg in the Basket.  It’s not that complicated is it? It’s two of my favorite comfort foods molded into one delicious sandwich, and it’s got Brunch written all over it!  I suppose there are probably recipes for each of these all over the web these days because they’re both really popular items and they’re both very easy to prepare, but can you do both at the same time in the same recipe?  You’ll be able to after you watch this little step by step tutorial, I promise you.  Especially once you realize that this Brunch sandwich is smothered with a sausage country gravy!

Grilled Cheese with an Egg in a Basket Ingredients:

2 pieces of Bread
2 tbsp Butter
1 egg
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese

Butter only one peice of bread.  Cookie cut the other for the egg in a basket.  Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a hot pan over medium and place the cookie cut slice in the pan, then crack one egg in the middle and add salt and pepper.  After one minute, flip the bread over to the other side, using a spatula, and cover the top with cheese immediately.  Then place the other piece of bread on top and wait 1 minute to flip the whole sandwich over, to cook the other side.  Once you’ve flipped the Grilled Cheese Sandwich over, the Egg in a Basket side will be facing up.  Cook for another minute then plate.  I like to serve my Grilled Cheese with an Egg in a Basket, with sausage or country gravy!

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
