My all time favorite breakfast as a child (and as an adult) is Eggs In A Nest (at least that is what we called it in our home, I know it goes by other names as well). My mom used to make this for me when I was younger, and I love it. It brings back so many memories. It’s very quick and easy to make, so it makes a great breakfast option on the weekends or on week days when you are getting ready for work and need to make something quick.
The Mountain White Bread was the only bread I didn’t sample in the previous two days. I already knew that I wanted to make Eggs In A Nest with this bread, so instead of having breakfast for three meals yesterday I figured I would save this one for today. When you make these Eggs In A Nest, you’ll need to cut out little squares in the center of the bread to place the eggs. When I was younger my mom would toast these up for me all so but today and I decided to just try them as they were, no butter, no toasting just pop it in my mouth and see how this bread tasted all by its self.
It’s truly great! The texture is perfect, and has a slight sweetness to it. I have to say this “white bread” could beat out all those main brand gluten filled breads in flavor. This would make great sandwich bread with out even having to toast it before hand. I also think that if you were to cut this up in cubes, mix it with some herbs and bake it in the oven it would make for some great croutons. All in all it seems like a very versatile bread (same goes for the San Juan 7 Grain).
