“Eggs in a Nest” is currently my favorite breakfast food. The thought of it will get me out of bed in the morning. I’m not much of a breakfast person, so that’s saying something!
“Eggs in a Nest” goes by several other names like “Eggs in a Basket” and “Frog in a Pond”, so you may have heard of it.
It’s so simple to make, so this really isn’t much of a recipe, but I’ve been dying to share my favorite food with you!
Eggs in a Nest
- 1 Egg
- 1 Slice of Sourdough Bread
- 1 TBSP of Butter (not margarine), divided
1. Cut out a shape in the center of the bread. You can use fun cookie cutter shapes like hearts or stars, or you can improvise and use a cup or glass. Do not discard the cut out bread – it will make for a delicious piece of buttery toast!
2. Heat 1/2 TBSP butter in a skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add both pieces of bread.
3. Crack your egg right into the hole in the bread. Cook until the egg white is solid.
4. Lift the egg and bread with your spatula and add the other 1/2 TBSP of butter to the skillet. Flip the bread to cook the other side of the egg. Be very careful not to break the yolk. Flip the circle of toast as well.
5. Cook the egg over easy – or to your preference. This side will cook faster than the first side, so watch it carefully.
6. Serve immediately.
I like to eat mine with a side of sausage and fruit!
