Egg Nest

Print Friendly and PDF

In the weekend we usually prepare special breakfasts instead of the usual cereal & milk or yoghurt. The below recipe looks really cute apart from tasting good as well.

I had tried the recipe I found online sometime ago, but this time round I substituted bacon with chorizo since that was available at home and I can't say I regretted the change in ingredient.

Makes: 4 nests (2 nests per person)


  •  4 slices of toast bread
  • 4 slices of chorizo (or bacon if you prefer)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 slices of young cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • 1tsp butter 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut circles in the bread slices around 3 inches in diameter. You can use a cookie cutter or else just press an upside down glass and cut round the edges.
  3. Grease a muffin pan with butter.
  4. Press the bread circles in the muffin pan.
  5. Cook chorizo in a pan for a minute.
  6. Press the chorizo on top of the bread circles.
  7. Cut the slices of cheese in half and place on top of the bacon.
  8. Place the muffin pan in the oven for 5 minutes
  9. Remove from the oven.
  10. Crack an egg and seperate out most of the egg white.
  11. Drop the egg in one of the cups.
  12. Repeat process for all cups.
  13. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  14. Cook in the oven for another 8-10 minutes.
  15. Remove from the oven and use a spoon to pop  the nests out.
  16. Serve directly.
