Bread Nest

Eggs are my favourites & I love them in almost everything. So this morning thought of getting a bit creative with them. Children will love the look of this amazing breakfast & we adults too will love this special treat.

To make this special treat, you will need :-

4 slices of bread
4 eggs
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp chopped green garlic
pepper powder, to taste
salt, to taste
chopped parsley
little ghee or oil, for frying

Take a slice of bread & using a cookie-cutter or the mouth of a small katora or glass, cut rounds of the middle of the bread slice leaving atleast 1/2 inch space from all the corners. Follow this for all the slices. Keep the roundels aside & the bread slices with the holes aside.

Mix the onions & the green garlic & a tsp of chopped parsley together in a bowl & set aside.

Heat a pan. Put some ghee or oil & spread it around the pan. Keep the bread slice with the hole on the pan. Put the onion-green garlic & parsley mixture in the hole of the bread slice & just saute the mixture in that small space for 30 seconds. Break an egg carefully into the hole of the bread. Sprinkle salt, pepper powder & some chopped parsley on the egg. Cover pan & lower flame & let it cook till the yolk of the eggs turn pink. Repeat this process for all the slices.

Toast the bread roundels till lightly brown & serve it along with the bread nest.

Now here... you could get creative & use almost anything edible thing that comes to your mind. You could also try putting some grated cheese or tomatoes or even whip up the eggs with all the spices that you would use to make an omlette & pour the batter into the holes of the bread slice.

Enjoy !!!!!!!

I've seen a similar recipe that requires making a hole in bread and breaking the egg into the hole with yolk in the centre.... but for the life of me, I cant remember the name! Yours looks even better than the one I saw...with a more 'come-eat-me' appeal. And it will surely catch a child's fancy!
