Season nests with some salt and black pepper.

Step 6

Crack an egg into the center of each nest.

Step 7

Gently transfer the sheet pan to the oven.

Step 8

Bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny, for 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 9

Serve immediately with fresh herbs on top and/or hot sauce. Enjoy!
