Nested Easter

Today is exactly 1 more week to Easter Sunday. Christians celebrate Easter Sunday because they believed Jesus rose from death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the fundamental principles and beliefs of Christianity and they celebrate Easter Sunday because they believe, Jesus died for their sin on the Cross-on Good Friday, buried and rose from death on Sunday.

Look at this awesome volcano like toasted bun that consists of runny soft boiled egg and topped with some extra fried bacon bits. How will this feel like when you peel off the outer crust of the bun and dipped it in the runny egg yolk and served together with a bed of shredded cucumber and mixed dried fruits.

So today I will share with you a very simple and interesting Easter Breakfast that you can prepare together with your kids on this coming Easter Sunday. I am sure the kids will be overwhelm in getting their apron on to whip up this cute and colourful Breakfast with Daddy/Mummy. Come, let's get our ingredients ready and start making this nutritious breakfast with Wholemeal Bun, Egg, Bacon, Mixed Dried Fruit and Shredded Cucumber.

Ingredients: (serves 2)
2 Medium Size Wholemeal Bun
4 Kampong Chicken Egg
2 Japanese Cucumber, shredded
2 Strips of Streaky Bacon, cut into small pieces
1/4 Mixed Dried Fruit of your choice
Some Easter Chocolate Egg, optional

1. Carefully, cut a well out from the center of the buns. Be-careful not to cut too deep or it will cut through the base.
2. Place the buns in an toaster oven and bake it for about 5 minutes, turn it over once or twice. Remove and set aside to cool.(this step is to make a crispy inner crust before baking the egg in it)
3. Pan-fry the bacon pieces with some oil till crispy and fragrant then set aside.
4. Crack two eggs into each bun, pop them into the toaster oven(or you can place the bun in the same pot where you pan-fried your bacon and covered and simmer the egg till your preference of liking) for about 5 minutes or so till an opaque layer form on top of the egg.
5. Remove the buns from the toaster, place it on a serving plate, arrange some shredded cucumber along the side of the bun like what shown on the photo above.
6. Top the egg with some crispy bacon bits then scatter the remaining together with some mixed dried fruit on to the shredded cucumber.
7. Before serving, place a few Easter chocolate egg on the side of the plate as special treats.

~ I bought mine from Breadtalk latest Spring/Collection - "Wholemeal Azuki Bean Bun".
~ If you cannot find any kampong Chicken Egg, replace i t with extra small size egg.

The shredded cucumber served like some twigs/grass "nest" for this Giant Bread Egg. And it goes well with that crispy streaky bacon and mixed fruit too. This will be another great ideas to get kid polishing up their vegetables. I also purposely choose some dried apricot with the mixed fruit to give it an "orange" egg yolk effective.

Guess kids will be very excited towards the end of this breakfast to open up their Easter Egg Treats - Chocolate Egg. So if you are having some Easter pretty, perhaps you can use this idea to surprised your kiddo.


  1. Wow, this is so creative! Your kid is very lucky to have a super mummy! Happy Easter Day in advance!

  2. Wen: Thanks for your compliment :) Happy Easter to you too.... :)
