No-egg in a nest was a breakfast staple in my family when I was growing up, except with real eggs. Breakfast on Sunday morning, usually closer to noon, is a family gathering time that we don’t get during the busy week. I cherish this time with family providing nutritious foods they can relate to and carry on as a long standing tradition with their future families.
Tofu is an easy option as an egg replacement. Eggs don’t have much flavor by themselves and neither does tofu. This was a difficult recipe hack to reproduce. Making a version of egg-in-a-nest with an easy over egg is almost impossible. The traditional egg-in-a-nest over easy has the ability to give moisture to the dish. The well done egg-in-a-nest is a more similar representation when replaced with the tofu version.
The use of avocado was a last minute fun idea. My eldest daughter has an allergy to soy. So when I design my dishes I have to be prepared to provide other ingredient options. I really like using whole vegetable and fruit in recipes when I can. The avocado is not a traditional option but a really flavorful one. In both instances I enjoyed this recipe with a side of salsa for added moisture.
