EASTER BUNNY'S EGGS IN A BASKET (From incredibleegg.org) 4-7-18 Top of page

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsps. parsley, minced
pinch salt
pinch pepper
2 tbsps. olive oil
1 sourdough baguette, approximately 24" long
6 large eggs

Preheat oven to 400°. Mix garlic, parsley, salt and pepper with olive oil. Saute in a small saucepan on medium heat until garlic is just browned. Remove from heat and set aside. Place baguette on a sheet of foil and roll up the sides to hold the bread in place. Use a small serrated knife to cut 6 holes in top of baguette. Space evenly apart with enough depth and width to hold one egg, being careful to not cut through the bottom of the bread. Press down on the bread in the hole to make room for the egg and olive oil mixture. Spoon olive oil mixture into each hole. Crack one egg into each hole. Cover baguette gently with one large piece of foil, creating a “tent” for the first 5 minutes. Open the tent and cook until egg white is set, but yolk is soft and runny, about 15 minutes. Take out of oven and gently remove foil. Cool slightly and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slice baguette in spaces between the eggs. Serve immediately.

Tips, hints and helps: Purchase eggs 2 weeks in advance of when you will boil them and they will peel easier. 4-7-18
