When sugar starts to brown, about 5 minutes transfer the syrup into two 8″ baking pan, with tongs, tip pan back and forth to distribute caramelized sugar evenly in the pan. Set aside. Do the same to another 8″ baking pan. Set pans aside.

To unmold, run a knife around the sides, place serving plate on top of the flan and quickly turn the pan over onto the plate.Pour the caramel sauce over the flan.

Egg in a Nest

Here’s What You Need: 

1 egg
2 slice of bread
Non-stick cooking spray

Here’s How: 

Use a 3-inch cookie cutter (circle, heart, star, or flower) to cut a shape out of the piece of bread.

Spray  frying pan  with non-stick cooking spray over medium heat. Place the bread in the pan and fry it lightly on one side. Flip the bread over. Reduce the heat to low.

Carefully pour the egg into the cut-out hole in the middle of the bread. Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the egg has set in the bread “nest.” For an over-easy egg, flip the egg and bread and cook it on the other side.
