Eggs, Eggs, and more Eggs, are you sick of eggs yet with Easter right around the corner?
Every year Easter is the same in my home–kids race downstairs to see what the Easter Bunny has brought them and then the begging begins. Please, please, please can we have some candy before breakfast? “A jelly bean or two for now” is the typical response and then we all rush back upstairs to ready ourselves for church. As we run out the door we grab apples and a few more jelly beans to get us by until Easter Brunch. We then return from church and as I prepare brunch the kids beg some more for candy. 😉
Even though I can predict the exact same thing happening year in and year out, the one thing that is different each year is the Easter brunch menu–I am always trying to find fun and new things to prepare. More importantly I try to have at least one fun thing on the menu that symbolizes some aspect of Easter. For many of you that would most likely mean deviled eggs, and often it does for me too. But this year I want to try something different and something I have not made in many years. I am going to make Eggs in a Nest and not the traditional way. I will not be frying up eggs and laying them on toast. This recipe is much more fun and the kids will love it and as you can see from the picture above, it is the perfect addition for a symbolic recipe.
But before I give you the recipe I must warn you of a particular ingredient–Cheez Whiz. Yes I said Cheez Whiz. I know you are all thinking that there is no way you will make anything with that in it, and to be honest I am completely with you. This is one of the most disgusting ingredients I have ever found in a recipe. In fact the first time I made this, I refused to use it and put regular cheese in its place and while it turned out ok, it definitely was not nearly as good as it is with Cheez Whiz. So please just give it a try, you will be happy you did.
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 slices whole wheat bread
- 8 tsps Cheez Whiz
- nonstick vegetable cooking spray
- optional-shredded cheese and chopped tomatoes
Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray four 1-cup ovenproof custard or dessert cups with nonstick spray. In large bowl, whisk eggs, pepper, and seasoned salt. In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add egg mixture and stir constantly for about 2 minutes or until eggs are almost set. Spread remaining 1 tablespoon of the butter over one side of each bread slice. Place 1 bread slice, buttered side up, into each cup, pressing to fit. Spoon 1 teaspoon Cheez Whiz on top of each bread slice. Divide eggs equally among cups. Spoon 1 teaspoon of Cheez Whiz over top of each. Bake until cheese is melted, approximately 5 minutes. Serve hot. Note: you can garnish with shredded cheese and chopped tomatoes if desired.
