Saturday Brunch

Today was one of those wonderful, lazy Saturday mornings where we felt we could take it nice and slow. Mr. F. had eyed these little breakfast concoctions in The Silver Spoon and today seemed the perfect day to try them out.

Some people are really great at making breakfast. Mr. F. is one of those people. I am not. I mean, I can make breakfast foods, but I never feel inclined to do so first thing in the morning. However I fully appreciate the effort when others do.

Um, obviously, they blow torched these after they made them.

Our little nests.

Scrambled eggies in a nest. We did not slow cook our eggs like the recipe suggested. Because, hey, we were hungry.

Were these really worth the hour that it took to make them. Probably not. But it was fun to do something out of the ordinary.

Scrambled Eggs in Their Nests


1 lb and 2 ounces potatoes (wouldn't want to forget those extra 2 ounces!)
6 T butter plus extra for greasing
1/4 C heavy cream
6 eggs
2/3 C Parmesan Cheese, grated
salt and pepper


Cook the potatoes in salted, boiling water for 20-30 minutes until tender. Drain, peel (or not), and mash ina bowl, then add 2T of the butter, 2-3T of the cream, one egg, and the Parmesan. Mix well and season with salt.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Make four spirals with the potato mixture on the cookie sheet and surround each with another higher ring of the mixture. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

Meanwhile, lightly beat the remaining eggs with salt and cook over a low heat for 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining cream and cook, stirring, until thick. Spoon the eggs into the potato "nests" and serve.
