Eggs in Toast Nests
Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch
  • 6 slices of bread
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 6 medium size eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  • Note: To make 12, double the ingredients and use a 12 cup muffin tin
  1. Step 1: (Can be done the night before you plan to serve these) Trim the crusts off of 6 slices of bread. Brush both sides with melted butter.
  2. Fit into large muffin cups or custard cups. Press down slightly with your fingers so the bread will fit in the cup. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes until lightly toasted.
  3. Step 2: Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Break a medium egg into each toast cup. Add salt and pepper and dot with butter. Poke each egg with a fork to break the yolk. Cover lightly with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes or until done.
  4. Loosen cups with a fork and serve hot on a platter with bacon or sausage links and garnish with fresh parsley.
