“Eggs have no business dancing with stones.” Haitian Proverb
No, I don’t know what the above quote means, exactly, but I think it might be worth thinking about if you’re an egg.
Holiday time and company is coming! Some of the company might be staying over and be with you for breakfast. Here’s something you might try.
I like this recipe because it has so many variations with different ingredients that you could use. Also, there are at least two ways to bake the eggs.
Eggs can be baked in individual ramekins, which will allow you to place a scalding hot ramekin in front of each person and watch them negotiate the eating process. The second way is to bake the eggs in a muffin tin and scoop each finished egg creation onto people’s plates.
And the list of options –
bacon, regular or Canadian
sautéed mushrooms and onions
various sauces, such as Italian
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil ramekins or muffin tin.
Place the optional ingredients of choice in the bottom of the ramekin or muffin tin. Break an egg into each. A tablespoon of cream on top of each egg would be good, if you happen to have it in the house.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, adding cheese, if using, during the last minute or two.
Best if the initial ingredients of meats or veggies or sauces are warm. Eggs like a warm reception.
I also own a muffin pan that makes 6 large muffins. This would seem to be good for a multiple egg creation with plenty of room for meats and veggies. Biscuits from the exploding can and/or mashed potato fries might make a nice side to serve with baked eggs. What are mashed potato fries?
On December eighth I posted a mashed potato cake recipe. It made a lot. One night I cut some of the leftover cakes into strips and baked them for about 15 minutes on each cut edge.
That means you have to turn them half way through the process. Worth the effort. Impress your guests or just enjoy these for yourself. The pictured fries are made from the mashed potato cake with rosemary. Yummy!
