Chew This! Picnic Chicken Salad 

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! As many of you know, I write a food column for “The Courier-Times” on the first and third Sundays of each month called “Chew This!” I absolutely love it and love sharing my family recipes, stories and memories. If you are in the Henry County, Indiana area – pick up a copy of the newspaper today and let me know what you think! If you are not, but would still like to take a look, sign up for an online subscription at http://thecouriertimes.com Need help with the online signing up!? Write to me and I will be happy to help! blaisethebaker@gmail.com

My newest column is all about picnics and the perfect picnic foods! I love chicken salad – and have a couple of recipes in my cookbook for chicken salad – but the recipe I am sharing now is quickly becoming my favorite! There are sweet elements, salty, crunchy and flavorful. I would love to know what you add to your chicken salad! Email me and let me know! Pack a cooler – add some ice – fix this salad along with some other picnic classics and venture out on a picnic and make memories with the ones you love. Enjoy the season! 

Also my “Ask and Answer” feature is my recipe for egg salad! The “secret topping” makes all the difference with this!

Eggs in a Basket

I posted these awhile back on my “Blaise the Baker” Facebook page, and provided “step-by-step” photo directions on how to make them. They are fast, simple and easy – and something I think I have had for breakfast now for about a week straight. To follow my Facebook, click here…

I always call these “Eggs in a Basket”, but they have several different names. Holy eggs, Egg in a Hole, Toad in a Hole, Elephant eyes, and on and on…

I can not believe I am writing an actual “recipe” for this, but loads of you have asked – and I am here to teach, share and learn – so here we go…

Eggs in a Basket Blaise the Baker Blaise Doubman

Eggs in a Basket

2 slices of bread
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons salted butter
Salt
Black Pepper

In a large skillet, melt the four tablespoons salted butter over medium heat until bubbly.

Using a small biscuit cutter (or shot glass) cut out the middle of each slice of bread and discard the middles. Put each slice of bread in the skillet and allow to brown slightly before adding in each egg into the middle of each slice of bread.

Salt and pepper the eggs.

Wait about 3 minutes, flip with spatula, and cook on the other side about 2 minutes. Salt and pepper this side too.

Remove to a plate, eat and enjoy!
