Egg Baskets

These egg baskets are easy to make and adored by kids. You can use whatever kind of bread you’d like but we suggest whole wheat or whole grain for extra fibre.

Prep Time:
5 min
Cook Time:
15 min


  • ½ cup ( 125 mL ) margarine or cooking spray
  • 24 slices whole wheat bread, sliced in half diagonally
  • 48 eggs
  • 3 cups ( 750 mL ) shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease four muffin tin trays with margarine or cooking spray. Place one half piece of bread into cups of muffin tins, pressing to fit into the shape of the cups. Carefully crack an egg into each bread cup. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon (15 mL) cheese over each egg.

  2. Bake in preheated oven until eggs are cooked, about 15 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes before serving as Egg Baskets will be hot. If necessary, run knife around Egg Baskets to loosen from muffin tin.


Add any chopped veggies for more colour, flavour and nutrients, such as spinach, peppers, diced tomatoes, broccoli, etc.
