This morning I made something different for the “boys” for breakfast this again. They of course loved it….with these two, I swear that I could put ripped up paper bags on their plates and they would still eat it lol! They like their food and they are loving this whole trying new recipes for the blog thing!
AND, this recipe is easy enough DADS for you to help the kids make for Mom today!
Again this is a very simple breakfast recipe… thankfully… I am not a morning person and certainly not a just wake up and want to make a full breakfast. Now, I do make them full on peameal, hash browns, eggs and toast a lot of the time but it is definitely not every weekend. Even if I was a morning person, the cocktail of medications the doctors have me on are not conducive to alertness in the morning (or any other time of the day if you were to ask Dillon!)
Anyway, here is the Saturday breakfast recipe/steps!
Here is what I started with, although again… I forgot to add something to the picture. I forgot to add butter or margarine…. sorry!
The first thing to do is to generously grease an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet. According to Chris it needs to be well greased so that you get all of the nice crispy, burned on cheese lol!
Now you are going to take each slice of bread and “smush” it down in the middle. You can use a spoon with a kind of pointy end or use your fingers. Either way, you want to push it flat all the way around the inside so it will fit an egg! You can see how much I’ve smushed it in the picture below!
Once you have smushed all the pieces of bread, butter all around the edges and then crack an egg in the divot you put in the pieces of bread.
Next you are going to sprinkle it with freshly ground pepper. You might notice that I have 3 with “broken” yolks. Dillon doesn’t like eggs over easy, he doesn’t like the “runny stuff” in the middle when the yolk is still dippable!
Now it’s time to add the cheese. Again according to Chris, you have to make sure to over cheese these lol. He asked me to accidentally “miss” with some of the cheese so that it would cook around the edges and leave him with some crispy cheese to go with the eggs!
Once the cheese is covering most of the bread, (and some of the pan lol), bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. You can cook it a little bit longer if you want firmer yolks but that seems to be perfect to me… you be the judge of how it looks after 25 minutes!
And that’s it! An easy Saturday morning breakfast (eggs in a nest) recipe!
