Nest Eggs are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. They brings back memories of when I was a kid. This was my dad’s specialty. It was the only breakfast he knew how to make. It’s so simple, yet so delicious! Start off by buttering two slices of whole wheat bread on both sides. You can change up the bread if you’d like. You can even use rice bread and make it gluten free. I use my coconut butter instead of regular butter, but you can use any butter you’d like. Then take a glass and cut circles into each slice of bread. These are your “nests”.
Crack one egg into a glass measuring cup with a spout. The spout makes it easier to pour into your “nest”. Heat your skillet to medium low and grease with coconut butter. Place your “nests” and bread circles into the skillet. Pour the first egg into the nest and then crack your second egg and pour into your second nest. Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper. Once the white part of the egg sets, flip your nests and the bread circles. Cook until eggs are done but the yolks are still runny. Cook the rounds until they are crisp.
Nest Egg –Serves 1
2 pieces whole wheat bread
Spread coconut butter or regular butter evenly on both sides of the bread slices. Use a glass with a diameter smaller than your bread slice to cut rounds into each slice. This is your “nest”. Heat your skillet to medium low. Grease the pan lightly with coconut butter. Place the nests into the pan, along with the two bread rounds. Crack one egg at a time into a small bowl or measuring glass with a spout. Pour each egg into the center of the “nests”. Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper. Cook until the white of the egg starts to set. Flip and cook until the yolk is runny. Flip the two rounds to brown on the other side. Use the rounds to dip into the yolk. Enjoy!
