Nest Eggs



  • 6 shredded wheat biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • Salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper
  • Paprika


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease six custard cups.
  2. Finely crush shredded wheat biscuits. Toss cereal and butter until well combined. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the cereal, and divide the rest evenly among the custard cups.
  3. Press the mixture evenly against the bottoms and sides of the cups. Divide one-half of the cheese equally among the custard cups, and break an egg into each cup. Spoon 1 tablespoon of milk over each egg, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Cover with the remaining cheese, and spread about 1 tablespoon of the reserved cereal around the edge of each cup. Sprinkle the top of each cup with paprika.
  4. Place the custard cups on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs are firm.
  6. Serve the eggs hot.
