Despite the fact that my little brother is 21 years old, he still enjoys me cooking “eggs in a nest” for him whenever we’re home for holidays together. I learned to make these in 7th grade home economics and as easy as I thought they were to make, I found this recipe in Everyday Food for basically the same thing and it is SO much easier!
2 tablespoons butter, plus more for cookie sheet
Salt and pepper
6 slices of bread (I only used 5)
6 eggs (I only used 5)
|Butter cookie sheet and BOTH sides of bread|
|Using a cookie cutter or cup, slice out a space for the egg|
|Bake until bread is golden brown, about 6 minutes|
|Remove from oven and flip bread|
|Carefully crack an egg in each slice of bread and salt and pepper|
|Cook until egg whites are set but yolk is still runny (about 8-9 minutes)|
|Add cheese and other toppings (examples were bacon, avocado, tomatoes, hot sauce, etc) for last minute|
These were oh so yummy and much easier than trying to flip them in the frying pan… I highly suggest trying them!
