Creative in the Kitchen: Literary Lunches
Goodnight Moon Brinner

My guys love breakfast for dinner.  This recipe, inspired by a favorite bedtime story, “Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown, is the perfect dish!  It’s a new take on a traditional breakfast: “egg in a nest”. 

1 piece of whole wheat bread
1 egg
1 sausage link
1 slice of American cheese
Cooking Directions:
1.       Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.  While skillet is heating up, butter both sides of the bread and use a glass or biscuit cutter to cut a circle in the bread. 
2.       Cook sausage according to package instructions.
3.       Place the bread and cut out circle into the skillet.  Crack egg and put it in the center of the circle cut out of the bread. 
4.       Once the toast begins to brown, flip.  Cook until the egg reaches your desired doneness.  Place toast and egg on a plate. 
5.       Cut cheese slice in half.  Cut one piece in half again.  Place these strips along the short side of the bread.  Cut triangles from the rest of the cheese slice and place in the top corners to make the curtains.
6.       Cut the cooked sausage into quarters lengthwise and place on top of the egg creating the window pane.
