I’ve been making Birds in a Nest for my family for years. It’s such a fun take on the traditional eggs and toast breakfast and the kids absolutely love it. When I was making Birds in a Nest for myself this week for breakfast, I decided to add another breakfast favorite — bacon! And since I was adding bacon, I decided to go ahead and add some cheese too. I just couldn’t resist, y’all.
I was a big fan of Birds in a Nest before adding bacon and cheese, but now I’m an even BIGGER fan. It does require a few extra steps, but the extra steps are totally worth the extra effort.
Birds in a Nest
- 2 slices of bread (I used whole wheat but you can use whatever you like best)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 slice of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/4 cup of cheese, shredded (I used a three cheese blend)
- salt, to taste
- freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Oh my gosh, these Birds in a Nest are so good. I love the addition of the crumbled bacon on top.
As a work at home mom who carries much of the responsibility of the household and keeping things orderly, I guess you could say I’m the CEO of our household. I make sure everyone gets up on time, gets dressed and to work or school on time, makes lunches so that bellies get full, has homework duty each school night, plans and makes dinner…I could go on and on but since you’re a mom (or dad) you know that being the CEO of your household is no easy task.
