Recipe: Egg in a Nest

I saw this recipe and needed to give it a try, because it was so interesting and easy.

I'm glad I did.  It was super quick, and yummy!  I did not use sweetened cereal, because I think that would have been very odd.  I used rice and wheat flakes, but bran flakes or corn flakes would also have been good, I think.

Egg in a Nest

1/2 c wheat and rice flake cereal
1/4 c shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend, cheddar would be delicious)
1 egg
Salsa (optional)

Spray a small custard dish with cooking spray.  Mix cereal and cheese together, and transfer to custard dish, making a well in the middle.  Crack the egg into the well, pierce the yolk (or it could explode!), cover with wax paper or a small plate (my custard dish has a cover), and microwave for about 45-50 seconds until egg white is set.  Serve with salsa if desired.

Pin It!


  1. Just found your blog and LOVE it! Question though-where did you find all of your animal sauce or snack containers? I'd love to get a set!

  2. The animal containers were from the drugstore at Easter. I saw their potential and stocked up.
