Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the egg stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the egg under cold running water in the sink. Peel and slice once cold.

Season the egg slices with salt and pepper to taste, and arrange in the center of the nest with the honey-glazed almonds.
