Baked Egg in Spaghetti Nest

Posted in

 As in past weeks I've gathered much strength (and weight too) to be in my kitchen again I couldn't resist from trying something for breakfast. According to the diet chart I can have eggs in breakfast (and I need some bacon too). I chose to have my favorite Baked Eggs again but neither cheese nor bacon is allowed now. So here is a new deal for me and you all: 


Baked Egg in Spaghetti Nest/Cup.




Baked Egg in Spaghetti Nest Recipe:


Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking Time: 15 mins

Resting Time: 0 mins

Total Time: 25 mins

Yield: 2 servings




Spaghetti: 200g

Egg: 6, large

Garlic: 1 tbsp, minced (optional)

Marinara sauce: ½ cup + ½ cup

Mozzarella cheese: 6 tbsp, shredded (optional)

Dried/fresh herbs of your choice: 1 tbsp (I used parsley & oregano) (optional)

Paprika powder: 1 tsp

Extra virgin olive oil: 1 tsp

Salt: 1/2 tsp


To Serve:

Green salad

Bread slices

Tomato Chili Salsa Sauce




Small bowl

Large bowl

Muffin molds

Large saucepan




In the large saucepan boil water with heavy dose of salt. Cook the spaghetti al dente. Drain and keep under running cold water to avoid over cooking. Drain and pat it dry.


In a large bowl combine spaghetti, ½ cup marinara sauce, herbs, paprika powder, minced garlic, olive oil and salt. Mix thoroughly with the help of a tong or fork.


Take few strands of spaghetti and place them in a muffin molds in a circular motion so that each cup looks like a nest.


Preheat the oven to 2000C and bake the spaghetti nests for 15 mins at the same. Use the top shelf of the oven for the brownish crust on top. By the end of baking the spaghetti will be a bit crispy and crunchy.


Fill the hole of each nest with 2-3 tsp of marinara sauce and cover the top of each nest with 1 tbsp of shredded mozzarella. Crack one egg at a time in separate small bowl and place it on the top of the nest. Do same with rest of the eggs.


Send back the muffin molds to the oven and bake for another 15 mins at 1800C or until egg whites are set and yolk is still bit runny. If you like your egg yolk nicely done, bake for additional 5 mins or according to your taste.


Remove from oven immediately. Run a blunt knife on the sides of the molds and remove the nest carefully. Don’t rush, it can fall apart.


Serve immediately with Tomato Chili Salsa Dip and green salad. If you planning to go with bit heavier breakfast add few slices of bread to your platter.


Are you heading for a picnic? Prepare this Baked Egg in Spaghetti Nest a day ahead and wrap them in foil/air tight container and surprise your loved ones.
