It’s quick to make and easy to transport: Baked eggs in Toast Nests. A delicious and basic snack that can be eaten cold, perfect for the picnic, whether in the woods or at the beach.
All you need is a muffin pan, eggs, slices of soft toast bread, a small amount of butter, salt and pepper.
Alternatively, you can cover each egg with a slice of cheese, sprinkle it with smoked paprika and let it bubble in the oven. But as I don’t like melted cheese that has turned cold, here is the picnic version.
For the easier transport, let the nests inside the muffins pan.
For gluten-free, omit the bread slices and crack the eggs directly in the buttered muffins cups.
