It's time once again for "Foodie Friday" hosted by our favorite Southern Women's Writer - Gollum at "Designs by Gollum" - She even has her own line of dishware sold at Big Lots! Now that's dishaholic extraordinaire!
When Mr. Rooster asked me how I wanted my eggs for breakfast - I replied, "Oh Mr. Rooster, do you suppose the breakfast chef could make me my favorite breakfast - just like Mama used to make? And I whispered in his ear just what that was.....
Mama used to call this "an egg in a nest". I still love it and it's so simple it almost seems silly to tell you, but here it goes... melt some butter in a frying pan. Cut a round circle out of a firm slice of bread (I like sourdough). Place bread in pan and crack an egg into the middle. Once the egg starts cooking up firmly, you can flip it over. You may need to melt a little more butter to get both sides golden and crispy. It's your choice if you like the yoke runny (good for dipping the little round toasty piece so I'm told) or over hard. That's the way I prefer mine. I always saved the little fried circle for last. My kids love for me to make this for them as well --- must just something about the way your Mama cooks you "an egg in a nest!" Now that we've shared breakfast -- be sure to check out the other dishes prepared for "Foodie Friday" - bet you'll find lunch, dinner, a snack and dessert too!
