Microwave “Bird In The Nest” Toast

 

IMG_1515

I have made this Microwave “Bird in the Nest” Toast for years! Kids love to cook and this is a way they don’t have to use the stove to cook the egg. The toast can be made ahead of time as it will warm up in the microwave. Make the toast and let the kids go at it!

These are not just for kids! They make for a great breakfast for the young at heart too as I just ate one yesterday. Save the section of bread you cut out in the middle and make mini toasted and crustless sandwiches for lunch.

Cut a circle out of the center of the toast with

a cookie cutter or the rim of a drinking glass.

Microwave just until it is melted.

Quickly dip the toast into the butter getting

butter on all of the bottom of the bread

but leaving enough butter in the

middle for the egg to sit on.

Crack an egg into the hole

with the melted butter.

Using a toothpick, poke 1-2 holes into the

top part only of the yolk. This keeps

the egg from exploding.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Microwave for about 60 seconds on high or

until the egg yolk is cooked the way you like

it. Be careful taking the plate out of the

microwave as the plate will be hot. Enjoy!

  1. I like making this on the griddle or stove, but this is a way I hadn’t thought of trying. Thanks for the reminder to prick the yolk with a toothpick, though! I definitely am glad I read that instruction.

  2. This is a wonderful idea because the little ones can do it themselves, we’ll give it a try. It’s funny how many names there are for these. In our family, it is Man in the Moon, and others call it Toad in the Hole. There are probably more I haven’t heard!
