Low-FODMAP Egg in a Basket; Gluten-free, Vegetarian

Print Friendly Version

Egg in a basket.  Egg in a nest.  Hole in one. Eggs in a frame.  Bullseye eggs.

So many names for this breakfast item.

Any recipe that has over 60 different names is likely to be pretty darn good ?

I have been making this grilled breakfast since I was young, and realized that if you aren’t familiar with it, you should be.

So here is a low-FODMAP Egg in a Basket recipe!  Easy, vegetarian, and dairy-free.

I love to slice some tomato or avocado on the side, or sprinkle this with grated cheddar.  Add your favorite low-FODMAP fruits or some hash brown potatoes as well.   Simple and GOOD.

Although this recipe has not been lab tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Serves: 1

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 5 min

Total time: 10 min


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice of low-FODMAP bread
    • If you tolerate gluten, you may opt for a white sourdough that has been fermented for 12 hours
  • Salt and pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley, for serving (optional)


  • Cut a 1-2-inch hole in the center of the bread slice using a knife or a cookie cutter
    • Low-FODMAP, GF breads are often small in size, adjust to your bread choice
  • Place a 6-8-inch skillet over medium heat and melt your butter or oil
  • Place the bread slice on the skillet and cook both sides (including the center bread circle, if desired) until lightly golden
  • Once bread is golden, carefully crack your egg into the center gap-hole, then cover the skillet and allow to cook for about 2-5 minutes, or to desired doneness, adjusting heat as necessary
    • If you like your egg cooked over easy, then gently flip to grill both sides
    • For sunny side up, do not flip
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve, alongside the crisped center hole, garnished with fresh parsley
