Hi, I'm Betty and welcome to Betty’s Kitchen. This morning its time for breakfast and I decided to do something called Egg in the Nest and you may have heard that name or a similar name and probably gives you a hint as to what it might be. It’s actually something that you can enjoy doing with your children and children love this kind of breakfast that almost everybody does anyway so let's get started.
What I need is one slice of bread and needs something that’s very large slice such as this Hearty White Bread that I used quite often and you can see I have slice I already started. For a piece of bread which for me was frozen I had in the freezer I take a biscuit cutter and before it’s toasted or anything. I just cut down through that center place and get that detach and then I use a knife with room temperature butter and cover all of the top as well as covering the entire bottom. I don’t really have to keep it together but I just want to show you what its look like. And now top is toasted because I just wanting to speed things up a little bit both part have to be toasted but it's not going to be—well it's going to be turn in the skillet as its needed.
So what we're going to do is pop this center out and it is kind of an extra piece. What happens as it’s called in egg in the nest this the nest we’re going to put this in the skillet with the buttered side down and then we’ll be breaking an egg into it. So I need to get my skillet a little bit heated here. It was heated just a moment ago when I was toasting that one side that I'm going to put the buttered side down and this is just a little bonus piece you can put the butter upside down and have little extra piece of toast. And then we’ll be going to our egg—I've got jungle eggs here actually smaller egg are work better because that allows it to cook quickly and insure that its get done properly. I'm just going to sit it there for a moment and just wait a little bit because you don’t want to put this in a cold skillet and I've actually let this cool off a little bit.
In the meantime I just mention of there working also harsh browns to go along with our breakfast so those are use popping over kids as well and I just tell you that we’re going to make some hot chocolate here. This is just going to be as in this is Swiss Chocolate truffle and I've got correct amount here in a mug and I'm cooking over to this hot one which is if you need some hot water so we’ll have our hot chocolate ready to go. And stir that around nicely and if you like marshmallows on the top you can do that but this is going to be all ready for us take that heat just come along.
Also I'm going to have some fresh fruit for the kids. Actually the kids are going to be me and my husband this morning but that’s okay. This has a little bit of Splenda on top of it I just like strawberries sweeten a little bit but I don’t want to add the extra calories. So coming back here I think we go ahead and break the egg in there.
Now if this egg should run out underneath that’s not a big problem in fact I'm going to break the yolk of it so it will disperse a little bit. So let see how it goes. That’s why it typically will look like and if you like that look you can just keep like that and probably that is the way it is more normally done. I just see as cooking a little more evenly it will break this pull it across and go ahead and fried in this manner.
So we’re just going to give that a little bit of time on that side and let me check and see what's happening with the bottom here. Oh, that’s working pretty well so I think I'm going to flip that over and get my spatula. And also a lot of bit there but you know this is really doesn’t have to be exact the egg doesn’t have to remain totally in the nest but it has to be a nice breakfast it’s just a fun thing to do and turn this over.
And it allows you to get your kids eats in eggs if they don’t normally like eggs and you can turn this over back and fort as much as you need to get it to done this that you like. Now I need to put some salt in on the other side but we just get it in this side and pepper if you like that. And then let's turn it back again. You will notice I really not have extra butter in the skillet that’s why it’s a little difficult to maneuver but I don’t like to add anything fatty that I don’t need. This think is a little bit hard to work around but that’s pretty much it. I did make a little mistaken to as along the way because it would have been nice and pretty if that it come out which just an egg inside that hole and nowhere else but you typically expect it may run underneath and the way I was came out is fine. So I'm going to put it on the plate from the skillet and then serve up this breakfast I'll be right back.
Now here's our kids meal egg in the next along with some harsh browns and a little extra piece of toast and some press strawberries in season and some Swiss Truffle Chocolate, hot chocolate. So I think any kid will enjoy this including myself and my husband.
