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)
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.
