Eggs in a Nest

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and when it comes to preparing this meal, I am usually looking for something quick and nutritious. I am an egg lover, but to be honest, I get bored with the typical ways of preparing eggs. Scrambling, frying, etc. yeah I’ve done it all, but I am constantly looking to reinvent classic recipes.

Follow this recipe for Eggs in a Nest, and hopefully, you will be inspired to eat your breakfast. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice of whole grain bread (can substitute any type of bread)
  • 1 tsp olive oil

  2. While the pan is heating use a knife or round cookie cutter to cut a circle in your slice of bread.

  4. Crack your egg into a separate bowl.
  5. Drop the egg from the bowl directly into the hole in your slice of bread on the frying pan and cook for 30 seconds.
  6. Flip the bread/egg combination onto the other side and cook for another 30 seconds.
