How to prepare scenographic nests of eggs and zucchini: a perfect idea to serve eggs in a different way than usual. Here's the recipe!

There is nothing simpler than fried eggs. Today we offer you the recipe for making egg and zucchini nests, an easy, substantial and spectacular second course. The courgettes must be passed through the spiralizer, a practical and handy tool that will allow you to obtain courgette spaghetti.

With these "spaghetti" you will make a nest that will completely envelop the egg. A base of sandwich bread and the pasta cup will help you assemble your nests. In this way you can serve the eggs in a different way than usual but perfect to give an extra touch to a simple ingredient.

Preparation of courgette and egg nests

  1. First, peel the zucchini , wash and dry them before passing them through the spiralizer to obtain zucchini spaghetti (if you don't have this tool at your disposal, you can easily slice the zucchini with a mandolin).
  2. Take four rings of buttered pastry rings suitable for cooking in the oven, place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and place four discs of sandwich bread on the bottom.
  3. Place the zucchini spaghetti on the edge and shell an egg in the center of each nest.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for about 8-10 minutes .
  5. When cooked, take the zucchini poached eggs out of the oven, transfer them to four plates, gently remove the pasta bowls so as not to destroy the nest and break the eggs and serve immediately. Enjoy your meal!

For an extra idea: if you want to make the bread base slightly softer, you can brush it with a little milk or add some soft cheese cut into cubes . It is preferable to consume eggs prepared in this way immediately after preparation.

Alternatively you can try the pizzaiola eggs .


The nests should be eaten immediately , however the raw zucchini cut into spaghetti style separately can be kept for a maximum of 2 days in the refrigerator covered with transparent film. The sunny side up egg should be eaten immediately but can last up to a day in the refrigerator.
