The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

With Easter upon us, I wanted to discuss a basic technique that was pertinent to the time of year.  So I decided that the perfect technique would be hard boiled eggs.  They can be used to make colored eggs or they are the perfect addition to some homemade potato salad.    The technique is easy … Read moreThe Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Spinach, Bacon and Swiss Quiche

Bacon Spinach Swiss Quiche

I am a huge fan of Quiche.  The other night I was clueless as to what to make for dinner.  I had a bunch of eggs lying around and figured a Quiche would be perfect.  Add a little bacon and Swiss and this was going to be a great meal.  I used the basic recipe from Paula Deen and then fiddled with the recipe until it worked.

Asparagus Frittata

Whenever I have a ton of left overs and I want to clear out the fridge I try to find something new and exciting to try. I love eggs and they go with almost any flavor. You can make them sweet in desserts or savory in a quiche. So I wanted to use eggs and the asparagus, tomatoes, and onions that I had left over from this last weekends barbecue. The only thing that came to mind was a frittata.

Layered with onions, asparagus and tomatoes this was a great dish.

Baked Eggs with Spinach

Baked Eggs with Spinach

On the weekend I like to cook breakfast whenever I get a chance. This Sunday I woke up early and started to read the September issue of Bon Appetit. I know it is October, but I just got around to it. It happens. Anyways, I came across a baked egg dish in the 5 ingredient section. It looked great and I just happened to have the ingredients available to make it.

Sometimes you want breakfast, sometimes you want lunch.  Whenever there is an egg involved, well, it is love.  I love eggs on burgers.  I can’t believe that it took me this long to make it for the blog.  The runny yolk permeating the meat and mixing with the cheese.  Well it is divine and down right amazing!  Here is the mouth watering burger.

Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza

I have been experimenting with pizza crusts.  So I have a ton of pizza dough lying around.  You can only have so many pepperoni pizzas before you need to find something different.  So I decided to try my hand at breakfast pizza.  If you have been near a TV at all over the past couple of days you know that it has snowed here in DC.  It has snowed a lot, roughly 27 inches.  I have a front wheel drive car and there is no chance of me getting out of my house for another day at least.  So I had to substitute a few ingredients in my breakfast pizza.  Normally I would use salsa as the base, but since I had none and there was no way of me getting to the market.  However, I did have a can of diced tomatoes.  So I substituted that.  It was still good, but salsa is the best.

Eggs Baked in Roasted Tomato Sauce

The other day I was reading the December issue of Food and Wine and I came across this recipe and I had to try it.  Roasted tomato sauce and eggs.  So simple yet I had never even thought of trying it.  Although it takes a bit to make it, the tomato sauce can be made ahead of time so that you can make a quick and easy dish.

Bacon Mushroom Hash – The Hangover Helper

This weekend I woke up with a little hangover and wanted to have a nice breakfast.  When I walked into the kitchen all I found was a potato, onion and four mushrooms.  What to do?  The first thing was to add bacon to it.  Without bacon fat, my hangover was not going anywhere.  Next I found a couple of eggs and I was on a roll.  Luckily, my Mom sent me a new food processor that could shred that potato in a second.  Clearly the stars were aligning in my kitchen.

Eggs Benedict

One of my favorite brunch items is Eggs Benedict. I love hollandaise sauce but some times you just walk into a restaurant and you just don’t trust the chef with preparing it correctly. To fix this problem I say, make it at home. Traditional hollandaise can take a lot of work and time to prepare, but blender hollandaise takes only a minute or two to prepare. You can have the Eggs Benedict on the table in a matter of minutes.

Bacon Crusted Quiche

I love brunch and I love quiche. However, today I didn’t feel like making a pie crust, so I made a bacon crust for the quiche. Basically you form it like you would a real pie crust. You need to blind bake it with the help of some parchment and beans. Then you fill with your egg mixture and serve. Completely amazing.

Egg in a hole, is one of my favorite breakfast foods that you don’t see that often.  If you break the yolk it is the ultimate to go food as the egg is secured in the bread.  If you don’t break the yolk, the bread around egg soaks up the yolk when it is broken at the table.  It is the ultimate breakfast food.

Nothing beats an egg in a hole, except for egg in a hole with cheese.

It is perfect finger food and you don’t have to worry about the egg and the cheese falling all over the place like a fast food breakfast sandwich.
