Egg in a Nest

Egg in the nest is a special treat my mom used to make my siblings and me for breakfast while we were growing up. I always thought this was her own invention until I saw a recipe for it a few years ago. And then I saw it on Pioneer Woman. And then I saw it on Pinterest. I was flabbergasted, yet happy to know that others have come to love this wonderful creation.

It’s super simple to make.  All you need is a piece of bread, an egg, a little butter, and salt and pepper. Next you cut out a little “nest” in the bread, toast both sides of the hollowed out bread and extra bread nugget, add the egg and a little salt and pepper and cook according to your preference. It’s a lovely. And it’s a perfect treat for your Valentine, or for yourself.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. This is something that I had forgotten about! Delicious reminder of a unique and tasty way to serve eggs. Cool that you did a heart in the center. Valentine’s should be an all day celebration-starting off with this for breakfast. Well done.
