It’s hard to believe…but summer is almost over. Soon the kiddos will all be headed back to school. Part of me is happy as I will get a little free time but then I will also miss having my boys at home hanging out with me.
I have told you guys before…I am not a morning person! It typically takes me a little bit of time to get going after I wake up. I know those first few weeks of school I will be moving at a snail’s pace. Of course my guys will need a good breakfast so you better believe I will looking to quick and easy breakfast options.
My boys have never liked cereal so they get a hot breakfast every day. One of their favorite things to eat are eggs. I also love eggs – both the taste and the ease of preparation. My oldest would eat a boiled egg every day if he could and my little one is a scrambled egg kind of guy. One of my favorite things to make them for breakfast is Baked Egg In A Nest. I do love the stovetop version…but again, I am not always on my game in the morning. So this baked version allows me to prep, pop them in the oven and just turn on the timer. I can put them together when I wake and by the time they are up and dressed there is a hot and delicious breakfast waiting for them at the table!
- 4 slices bread
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 4 Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs
- salt & pepper to taste
- cheese, tomatoes, green onions or your preferred toppings
- Preheat oven to 375º F
- Lightly butter both sides of the bread
- Push the bread into a ramekin or muffin cup.
- Crack a Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Egg into the center of the bread.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake in a 375º oven for 15 - 20 minutes (cook time will depend on how you prefer your eggs - 17 minutes gives you a slightly runny yellow)
I love this recipe because it gives my boys the protein their little bodies need plus I can make these in my sleep. You can make as little as one or enough to feed a whole army! My boys like their eggs where they are just set so I typically bake them for about 17 minutes. This way they get a set white and a slightly runny yellow. Now, I want to ensure that the eggs I serve the boys are safe so I look to Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs.
The Safest Choice™ patented, all natural, award-winning egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before the eggs even enter your kitchen. That’s important to me especially since my little helpers often lick the spoons and their little fingers.
There are so many great recipes that use raw or undercooked eggs. You don’t need to shy away from these recipes when you use Safest Choice™ eggs. I use these for my meringue, royal icing, ice cream and so much more. Because they are pasteurized, I don’t have to worry about exposing my crew to the risk of Salmonella.
