Egg Nest

Serves: 1 or as required

Cooking time : 50 minutes

Hint: Fill the bread nest as desired i.e. mince, bacon, mushrooms or left overs and top with an egg.


  • 1 bread slice, flattened with a rolling pin
  • 10 ml butter
  • 1 vienna sausage, sliced
  • 30 g cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 baby tomato, halved
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  • Butter the bread slice well on each side. Place the bread slice in a large, well greased muffin pan, pushing the centre of the bread down to form a “bowl” (be careful not to break the bread when doing this.)
  • Fill the “nest” with the sliced Vienna and grated cheese.
  • Break an egg over the vienna and cheese and place the tomato halves on top.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the egg has set. Serve hot.
