Microwave “Bird in the Nest” Toast


I have made this Microwave “Bird in the Nest” Toast for years! Kids love to cook and this 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.

  1. Looks great. Decades before the household microwave, I lived in am orphanage farm-home with 22 boys. Being small for my age, I was the cook until I had my growth spurt. I would fry up dozens of what we called “bulls-eyes” on a big cast iron grill for the hungry lot of boys coming in from the barn.

      • That’s the best part of tacos – that they are spicy, but I would only use medium salsa too – I don’t want to have fire coming out of my ears!

      • “They eat that crap from Taco Bell!” … I am laughing at this line … typical kids, not that I have ever had kids, or grandkids and I didn’t get away with anything when I was a kid! If I didn’t eat my dinner, I got no dessert! 🙂

      • My parents were really strict with me … my grandmother would sneak me hard candy – I wasn’t allowed to have any candy growing up, no pop either – just milk or juice, and, as a result, I don’t drink pop to this day.

      • Thank you Diane – that’s nice of you to say that and one time, you’ll crack up at this … my parents had friends that were a little younger than them, and I was still a teenager and they would come to our house for dinner. They asked my mom and dad if they had a child, if she could raise it til it was a teenager. My mom said “you’re kidding, right?” They were not kidding! I should tell that story in a blog post, but I would sound conceited if I did so, although it was my parents – very strict upbringing.

      • That’s very true – and we have a lot of kids that run away … they get in a fight with their parents and just take off. For days, weeks at a time. If I had done that, I’d have been disowned. I had no siblings either … so I could not say “he/she got to do that” … my parents were strict when I was young and a teenager.
