Egg in a (Heart) Nest

Egg in a nest.  I’m definitely not reinventing the wheel here as egg in a nest has been around forever.  I remember making it myself as a girl.  I had forgotten about it until just the other day my older son and I were up earlier than the other two in our family.  Since we had some time to ourselves I thought it would be fun to make egg in a nest for breakfast.  And for a special twist we used a heart cookie cutter instead of the standard glass.


Here’s how we made it:

  • Using a glass or a cookie cutter, cut a hole in the middle of a slice of bread (kids can do this part!)
  • Butter both sides of the bread if desired.
  • Heat a skillet to medium-high heat.
  • Place bread in the skillet.  Crack an egg in the hole.
  • Cook until egg starts to whiten and bread gets toasty.  Flip and cook on the other side until egg is cooked through.

I had forgotten how fun this breakfast is to make and eat.  My son really enjoyed the whole process.  With Valentine’s Day coming up this would be a fun activity to do with your kids.
