Eggs in a Nest

No recipe image available.Children love this egg dish, especially when told its name. To serve more than one, multiply the ingredients by the number of people. If you prefer a very firm egg yolk, bake up to 2 minutes longer.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 slice white bread
1 teaspoon butter or margarine, softened
1 large egg, separated
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread butter on 1 side of bread slice.
  2. Beat egg white at high speed of an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  3. Spoon beaten egg white onto prepared bread slice. Make a well in center of beaten egg white with back of a spoon. Place egg yolk in the well.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 15 minutes or until meringue is golden and egg yolk is set. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Makes 1 serving.
