egg in a nest

I was looking for a new breakfast food and came across a pretty picture of an egg in a mini bread bowl.  I couldn't NOT try this.  So simple, so easy, and so perfect for the welcoming of April.

How is it already April?  Really.

The year's flying by...I think I'm getting old.  Old people always talk about how quickly time flies.  I'm talking about how quickly time flies.  Therefore, I'm old.

(Sounds like some math theorem.  I don't remember which one now, because it's been so long since I learned those...another sign of aging.  Oh well.  It happens to the best of us, I suppose.)

Anyways, this is a quick and impressive brunch option.  Enjoy it now before April also quickly passes us by.

Egg in a Nest 
Recipe adapted from myrecipes.com
Makes 4

  • 4 small dinner rolls
  • 4 eggs
  • parsley or other herb, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Remove the top of each roll and hollow out the inside.  Make sure the hole is large enough to fit an egg (they're larger than you might think...I found that out the hard way as I'm still cleaning baked egg off my baking sheets!).  Break an egg into each bread bowl.  Bake the eggs bowls without their lids on a cookie sheet (use one that has raised edges, just in case your eggs overflow) for about 20 or 25 minutes until they're set.  Cook bread bowl lids for a few minutes until toasted.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with parsley or other herb for seasoning.  Serve plain or with hollandaise sauce, milk gravy, or tomato soup.
