Egg Nest/ Eggs and toast

        This is my 6yr old nephew's favourite food. He can eat this 3 times a day. There are some interesting names for this toast in the internet: toad in the hole, eggs and toast, egg in the basket, bulls eye toast, to name a few. 
Egg nest/ basket
       I used hamburger bun, instead of the regular bread used to make this dish. 

Egg Nest

1               egg
1               bun
1 pinch      salt & pepper 
1/2 tsp       butter / oil
1. Cut the middle portion of the bun with a cookie cutter (from the top slice). 
2. Reserve the cut out portion. 
3. Heat oil/ butter in a pan, place the bun and the cut out piece on the pan. Crack the egg and drop it inside the hole.
4. Season it with salt and pepper, cook until the bottom side becomes crispy, flip it over (gently) with a spatula. 

5.  Remove the bottom slice from the egg and place it on the pan, cut side down (it'll have some egg sticking to it) and cook.  
 5. Sprinkle salt and pepper and cook the egg until  the desired consistency is obtained. Flip it once more and cook the other side.
Tips for taste: 
1. This is an easy and healthy breakfast/ lunch for kid's.
2. For kid's lunch prick the yolk and cook, that way it'll be easier for them to eat without getting messy.
