Egg Nests

Elise of Simply Recipes shows you how to make Egg Nests, a recipe inspired by the whimsically illustrated 1963 French children’s cookbook called La cuisine est un jeu d’enfants, or “Cooking is Child’s Play.” The egg whites are whipped into foam then gruyere cheese is folded in. The egg yolk is carefully nestled in the middle and the entire thing is baked. Lovely.

    I love eggs so much. Must try to make this, see how it come out:)

  5. I think I’d probably prefer it if it were a biscuit, which is what I thought it was too. Sounds interesting, but strange texture-wise. I’m weird like that.

    A friend of mine emailed this exact post of Elise’s recently…I must make it! Too lovely!

    I love the origin, but will stick with my favorite hash nest for a baked egg.
