I love breakfast. A hot breakfast that is easy to carry out the door with you? Now that is something different.
Recently, a friend directed me to a farmer’s website which featured simple recipes. On this farm, they raise pastured poultry and herbivores Joel Salatin style (aka Paddock Shift). I saw this recipe for “Egg in a Nest,” tried it, loved it and now I wanted to share it with you.
Here is what you will need to make an Egg in a Nest:
Bread (I am using Ezekiel Bread here)
Butter (Ingredients: Cream & Salt –no vegetable oil!)
Swiss Cheese (optional)
Hot sauce (also optional)
How to make an Egg in a Nest:
-Butter the bread on both sides. This may not be as easy as it looks, but it is sure to be entertaining for spectators. *Tip: if you are using real butter it will spread a lot easier when it is warm.*
-Lay the buttered bread in a frying pan over low-medium heat.
-Take a glass jar and cut a hole in the middle of the bread.
-Lay the circular cut in the frying pan to cook along side the bread.
-Crack an egg in the hole in the bread that you cut out.
-Done! Simple and this can be eaten on the go if you break the yoke and cook the center hard.
-Add hot sauce, cheese or whatever to your taste.
You may want to experiment with add ins like ham, mushrooms, etc. This will have a greater volume than the void in the bread, so be careful not to overflow the space.

Any glass canning jar will work with my preference for this task being regular sized jars for the size of the cut out. New to canning?
