Egg in the Nest
What you need:
- one piece of bread (whichever kind you prefer)
- one egg
- some butter/margarine
This is honestly one of the simplest dishes to make. Plus it doesn’t take long so it’s very convenient.
What to do:
Put some butter or margarine in a frying pan on a stove. Set the burner on a little more than medium. Let that melt. Butter both sides of your piece of bread. Cut a hole in the center of the bread. It shouldn’t be huge, just large enough to hold an egg yolk. Then put the buttered bread in the frying pan. Next, crack the egg in the center of the piece of bread so the yolk is in the center. Let that sit until the bottom of the bread is golden brown (it takes about a minute or two) then flip it. Once the other side is sufficiently cooked (again, another minute or two) then it’s ready to eat.
This is a dish my grandmother used to make for me everyday I visited her. Once she taught me the rest is history :3 You could eat it for any meal of the day, of course, but it’s typically a breakfast food. Oh, and it’s pretty filling by itself but some bacon and juice are the perfect sides to this dish.
