Bird's Nest for Brunch

I must admit that until I got married I had never had a bird's nest (I know, I know). My husband grew up having these tasty treats and I guess I was deprived. I had my first bird's nest last year and ever since I have been hooked. My parents came into town this weekend for my birthday and to see our two new pups (hank and polly)! We ate most of our meals at home because we wanted to spend time with the new puppies.
Liven up your Sunday brunch with these cute bird's nests. It is a great creative way to enjoy your fried egg with toast. Serve this with some fresh fruit and bacon and you've got yourself quite the tasty breakfast!

You Will Need:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper

Here We Go:
  • Crack the egg into a bowl and set the bowl aside
  • Use a 3-inch cookie cutter or the top to a jar to cut a shape out of the piece of bread
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat
  • Place the bread in the pan and fry it lightly on one side
  • Flip the bread over and reduce the heat to low
  • Carefully crack the egg into the cut-out hole in the middle of the bread
  • Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the egg has set in the bread "nest"
  • For an over-easy egg, flip the egg and bread and cook it on the other side
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Serves 1
Happy Feasting!
