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!

1 tsp olive oil
5 grape tomatoes, sliced lengthwise (sliced avocado is also a great substitute)
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil on a small frying pan and preheat your pan.
  2. While the pan is heating use a knife or round cookie cutter to cut a circle in your slice of bread.
  3. Place your slice of bread on the frying pan and heat for less than a minute (or until 1 side is golden brown).  Flip the bread over onto the other side and cook until the other side is golden brown.
  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.
  7. Remove from the frying pan and plate with sliced grape tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Geese flying in formation

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
