Breakfast Creation

I think I've been reading too much Pioneer Woman blog.  As I write this, I'm mentally putting it under my cooking tab, and thinking about what I'll be putting under my homeschool tab. Hmmm, I need to get Jake on that-lol!  I saw this idea in a magazine and thought I'd try it.  It's not as pretty as the magazine picture, but it was really good- and so easy to make!  It basically is an egg cooked in toast. I went for a butterfly shape, but I think that was too much detail and it looks nothing like a butterfly. Next time I'm going for the easier heart or circle shape.....
1. Butter a slice of bread on both sides
2. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the shape you want from the middle of the bread.
3. Warm a skillet and place the bread in the skillet. (this is where I found out with the first one, that the skillet needs to be greased with some butter too.)
4. Crack the egg into the middle of the toast (into the cut-out shape.)
5. Most of the egg needs to be cooked, then flip the toast to cook the other side.
Eat and enjoy!


  1. I remember Mom making these for us. She called them an Egg in a Nest. YUMMY!

  2. I just printed off some yummy pioneer woman recipes to make. I love her blog.

  3. Looks yummy! Kind of reminds me of french toast...I'll have to try it for the girls! Do you want me to add it to the recipe book?
