There is a certain Midwestern delicacy called Bird’s Nest. If you have never heard of it before, you are probably from outer space or Brooklyn.
Being from Brooklyn myself (I can say that, because I consider Brooklyn to be the motherland), I have never made a Bird’s Nest. But I have been served a bird’s nest, which makes me a sideways expert on Bird’s Nests, and fully capable of cataloging the recipe:
- Toast up some toast.
- Magically cut a perfect circle in toast. (Must be magic. How else can this be achieved? I think there’s a spell in one of the Harry Potter books. You wave a wand and say “toastus circulus” or maybe it’s “breadus nestus.” Someone in the know will have to report on the exact verbiage.)
- Open egg into hole. Discard shell. (<– common mistake is putting shell directly into nest; makes for realistic yet altogether too crunchy bird’s nest)
- Sprinkle with something awesome, such as cinnamon or garlic, but probably not both.
- Top with marshmallow-shaped bird.
This is one of your more exciting breakfast options, because afterward, you will still be a vegetarian! Plus, you just ate dessert for breakfast, so congratulations to you!
