Eggs in a Nest
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.
1 slice white bread
1 teaspoon butter or margarine, softened
1 large egg, separated
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread butter on 1 side of bread slice.
- Beat egg white at high speed of an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
- 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.
- 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.
