With busy school days and weekends full of chores and activities, I often find myself looking for a quick, easy, delicious meal full of protein to keep me and my family going. When we are running out the door to practice, we need something easily transportable, too! With all this in mind, I came up with a grilled cheese sandwich mixed together with my family’s favorite, eggs in a basket. The outcome is a very quick meal that everyone in my family adores! The best part is, you can wrap it in a paper towel and take it on the go.
Grilled Cheese in a Basket
Butter both slices of bread. Use a cookie cutter to cut a hole out of the center of one slice of bread
Place a table spoon of butter in a fry pan, and turn burner on to medium-low. Place the slice of bread with a hole in the pan.
Crack egg into hole of bread slice.
When the egg has cooked half way through and the bread has turned golden brown, flip egg and bread over. Add the Tillamook Medium Cheddar and the other slice of bread, butter side up.
Flip entire sandwich when bread is golden brown.
When both sides of the sandwich are golden brown and the cheese is melted, remove from heat, slice in half, and wrap in napkin if taking it on the go!
Another highlight of this easy sandwich is, it passes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Whatever quick meal you need, Grilled Cheese in a Basket can come to your rescue. What easy meal tips do you have? Submit them here to be entered into Tillamook’s Back to School Contest on Facebook.
