Eggs In A Nest
This simple variation on baked eggs seems like something kids would get a
kick out of because it looks like an egg in a nest when done. They're quick
and easy to make but require 1 cup ramekins or other small oven safe dishes
to bake the eggs in.
For each nest:
2 green onions
olive oil or other fat to grease dish with
salt and pepper
1/2 chopped tomato
Preheat oven to 350. Grease dish generously, add salt and pepper to taste
and set aside. Cut the whites off the green onions, set the green tops
aside. Chop the whites. Saute' the green tops and chopped whites in a small
amount of oil or in a non-stick pan until wilted. (Alternately, you can put
the green onions in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 30 seconds or
so, depending on your machine, until the onions are wilted.) Place the
onions in the ramikin and make a hole in the center to form the "nest".
Break egg into the hole. If desired, add a little oil on top to keep the
top of the egg from drying out. Place cup in a shallow baking pan filled
1/2 inch deep with water. Bake for 15 minutes or until top of egg is opaque
and firm looking. Garnish with tomato and enjoy.
Variations: Place a lightly cooked slice of bacon in the bottom of the cup
before filling with onion. Use other slightly cooked veggies to make the
nest, such as spinach or curried onions, tomatoes and okra.
