Birds in a Nest

By Rosa- Lynn, age 12, Ontario



  • 1 egg
  •  salt
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 slice of bread
  • sliced oranges
  • strawberries


Heat frying pan on stove at medium heat. Add a teaspoon of butter to pan and let it melt. Take your favorite bread and cut out a hole in the center. You can eat the hole as an appetizer. Place the bread on the pan to brown. After one side has browned, flip, but before placing back on pan, add the rest of the butter. It will melt really quickly! Crack the egg so it lands in the cut out hole. Cook for about 3 minutes, then carefully flip with a spatula and cook for about 1 minute on the other side. Remove from pan and place on a plate and add a little salt if you want and pop the egg with a fork just before eating. It’s absolutely delicious, the crispier the better. Serve with fresh strawberries or cut up oranges. This is a great Saturday morning breakfast while watching those silly cartoons. Your parents will love it too! DELICIOUS!
