Christmas Tree Egg Nest
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • Butter for the pan
  • 1 piece of bread; I used whole-wheat
  • 1 egg
  • bell pepper for garnish
  1. Place a pan over medium heat and add some butter.
  2. While the butter is melting, take a slice of bread and use a christmas tree cookie cutter to cut out a hole in the center of the bread.
  3. Place the bread in the hot pan, break the egg into the hole, cover and allow to cook for a few minutes. Be sure to also cook the cut-out piece of toast (the tree) on the side.
  4. Once the egg has set enough, flip the bread and cook for about 30-60 seconds more, depending on how done you want your egg.
  5. While the egg is cooking, cut out a star and some strips using a yellow and a red bell pepper.
  6. Place the bread and egg onto a plate and garnish with the bell pepper and serve with your cut-out piece of tree toast as a dipper.
