Bird's Nest Eggs & Solo Toast
No! This is not some wild concoction made from a real bird's nest! Yes! There are recipes that do that!
This is a recipe I love to make for breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning for the family. It makes use of a hard boiled egg slicer and includes a tasty twist on toast.
Here's what it looks like (this is a batch that I made previously.):
So here's how to make them:
Hardware: 10" sautee pan, hard boiled egg slicer.
Bird's Nest Eggs:
- 1 Can Whole New Potatoes (sometimes called White Potatoes) - 14.5 oz can
- 1 - 2 eggs
- Approx 1-3 tbsp oil (I use olive, but any vegetable oil will work)
- Approx. 1/2 tbsp of butter
- Seasoning to taste (I use an Emeril Lagasse blend, salt and pepper works fine)
Solo Toast (so good you could eat it by itself):
- 2 slices of whole wheat toast
- 1/4 tbsp butter
- Approx 1 tbsp of soft bleu cheese (Gorgonzola works great)
- 1/2 tsp of Dijon mustard
Let's Make It!:
1. Prep the potatoes by slicing them one way -
- And then the other -
- Then put them in the pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes (this is about 2/3 of the can, you can use more, NP!) -
- Once the potatoes are warmed up and bubbling, "Make A Hole!" and melt a tab of butter inside it -
- Once the butter is melted and the pan is still sizzling, crack the egg into the hole -
- Season to taste and let the egg cook for 1-3 minutes, at that point, invade your bird's nest and flip the egg over for over-easy doneness (this pic is post-flip) -
- And plate that mo-fo! -
Eggs are done, let's do the toast, shall we?
- The Players LtoR: buttered toast, a small bowl and gorgonzola cheese or some other kind of tasty bleu cheese; not pictured - Dijon Mustard (had a previous engagement) -
- Put cheese into small bowl and microwave for 10 seconds (I have a 1100 watt oven) -
- Mix melted cheese with mustard (looks 'iffy' but tastes GREAT!) -
- Spread on the toast -
- Cut the toast and assemble the final dish -
