Fathers Day Recipe: Egg in a Nest


Growing up, my mom did most of the cooking. But every once in awhile my dad would try and make breakfast for us six kids. I don't remember a lot of the meals he made, but one definitely comes to mind—an "Egg in a Nest". It wasn't anything fancy, but something that only he made for his kids. In honor of my dad this Fathers Day, I am sharing this yummy recipe with you. It is so easy that even your kids could make this without a lot of help.


Egg in a Nest Recipe


  • Egg
  • Bread (it can be white or wheat)
  • Butter
  • Cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper


1. Spray your pan with cooking spray so your egg won't stick.

2. Cut a small whole in the center of your toast. I like to use a small glass so the circle is perfectly round, but you can also try to make a fun shape.


3. Butter the bread on the front and the back.


4. Put the bread in the pan and crack an egg in the center.
5. Season with salt and pepper.


6. Cook egg on medium heat until the bottom of bread is lightly toasted.

7. You can cook your egg anyway you like—I like my eggs hard. So after a minute or so, I poke my egg so that the egg can cook all the way through. My boys like their eggs slightly runny so I don't poke the egg until I flip it to the other side.

8. Flip over your egg in a nest and cook the other side.
9. Cook this side until lightly toasted.

Ta-Dah! You have an Egg in a Nest. It is really just that easy.
