My dad made us lots of these growing up and I recently started making them for K-Bear. I can ask her if she wants an egg and get a quick, “no.” I can then ask her if she wants a Bird’s Nest and get a resounding “yes!”
I love them because they are healthy, super easy to make, and actually kind of fun!
- One piece of bread (preferably whole grain with no corn syrup; I love organic sprouted breads)
- One organic, free-range egg
- Optional: sprinkle of shredded cheese (I favor sharp cheddar)
Directions: Make a hole with your fingers in middle of the bread and place it in a buttered frying pan.
Crack an egg in the middle.
Cook on medium-high until favorite fried egg consistency is achieved.
We like to flip ours over and I think you will too. That way both sides of the bread get toasted.
Cut, garnish with salt, pepper and hot sauce if desired.
I told you it was easy.
And if you really want to get crazy, melt a little cheese on there. Serve with fresh fruit, and enjoy the smiles you get from your family!
