Do you ever go to bed at night thinking about what you want to eat for breakfast? That happened to me this week. I was craving some buttery, fried puka toast!*
It was so good that I want to share with you how to make it. I’m actually sure most of you know how to make this, but this is what I want to write about, okay? Ahem. Sorry. I didn’t get much sleep last night.
- Salt/Pepper to taste
- Juice glass
Grab yo’self a couple of eggs and slices of bread. I’m sure one puka toast per person is the correct serving, but I eat two. Grab a glass with a rim smaller than the bread and press the rim down to cut a puka into your bread. Save that center circle, it’s still good. Butter both sides of your bread and slap into a pan on medium. Plop a bit of butter into each puka and let it get bubbly. Crack your eggs and drop them into your puka. Go ahead and toss in your little circles too- this will get them nice and toasty. Next: this is where you can do whatever you want. Cook your eggs how you want. Salt and pepper them how you want. I like mine over easy, so I flipped mine. Once your eggs are done to your liking, slide off the pan and onto your plate.
Happily dip your little circles into your yokes (if you like them runny) and pat yourself on the back. Enjoy this breakfast for dinner if you’re feeling funky fresh.
*I learned how to make this in Hawaii, that’s why I call it Puka Toast (Puka = hole). I hear some people call this birds in a nest which I find utterly disturbing.

Egg in the nest. Per Deirdre.
Going with a theme I see. Kidding. I would say Deirdre’s “Egg in a nest” is much better than “Bird’s Nest” or “Birds in a nest” or anything using the word “Bird”.
