Love this recipe.
Just a tad more work than a simple dropped egg on toast and, voila, egg nests.
This 1977 ad touts egg nests as an economical lunch. They'd also make a great brunch, maybe with a sprinkling of chopped chives.

1977 recipe: egg nests

That looks hard to make, though. How do you make a well with beaten egg white?
I'll stick with eggs-in-a-frame.

For the well, just use the back of a spoon to make an indentation in the beaten egg whites. You just need to make it deep enough so the yolk sits in it.

This is an older recipe than the 70's, I've seen it - 'baked shirred eggs' - in vintage cookbooks from the turn of the century. 20th, that is. I find it tedious whipping eggwhites, but they make a perfectly sturdy nest for the yolks.
