Baked Egg Nests

(4 servings)

  • 4 slices buttered toast
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place hot buttered toast on baking sheet.

Separate egg yolks and whites, keeping yolks in half of the shell for later use.

Beat egg whites and salt until stiff but not dry, and pile on toast slices. Make a well in the center of each pile of egg white. Slip yolk into each well. Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine.

Bake 15 minutes, or until whites are lightly browned and yolks are set. Serve at once with salad, milk and fruit. Makes 2-4 servings.

From a 1976 ad from the Egg Farmers of Ontario. This is an interesting baked variation on the popular fried egg dish known as Birdies In A Nest or Egg In The Hole.
