Scattered – Smothered – Covered, Amen!

This was my dinner last night… Just thought I’d share!

Midnight Snack: Bacon, Egg & Toast Pods {amazing}

3 Jan

 

I’m not too sure what has gotten into me today. I feel like some kind of domestic goddess has jumped inside me and is rattling ideas around in my brain. While reading another blog {Annie’s Eats}, I came across this super cute idea for bacon, eggs, and toast. Mind you, it’s nearly midnight… but I literally jumped up to see if we had some bacon! Much to my dismay, the only bacon we had was frozen. Nothing a little water bath in the sink can’t thaw out {hooray!} So, off to the kitchen {armed with my camera} for a midnight snack!

 

Bacon, Egg, and Toast Pods {so cute, and really easy}

{Yields: Four Servings}

 

You will need:
4 pieces of bread

4 eggs

4 slices of bacon

Shredded Cheese

Butter

Salt and Pepper

Large Muffin Pan

 

Here’s what you do:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin pan with butter. Cut out 4 slices of bread into circles {I used a drinking glass and it was perfect}

 

2. In a fry pan, cook the bacon slices until they are almost cooked fully. You don’t want them to crisp too much in the oven.

 

3. Remove bacon from fry pan to a plate with paper towels to soak up the grease. Next, take the bacon and lay it around the perimeter of the muffin well. Put the bread in at the same time… so the bread is helping hold the bacon in place.

 

4. Add a small bit of shredded cheese to the center of each piece of bread. Then, crack an egg, removing a little bit of the white, dropping the remaining white and yolk onto the bread. Repeat for all cups.

 

5. Bake in the oven for approximately 6-10 minutes, depending on how runny you like your egg. I found the best way to remove these from the pan is to take a knife around the edge and then lift them out with a serving spoon. Salt and Pepper to taste.

 

These really turned out amazing and were amazingly simple to make. Perfect for my midnight snack .. or for when you are serving several people at once. You don’t have to slave over the stove making sunny-side-up eggs for everyone individually. Throw these babies in the oven .. and you’re set! I hope that you all try these! And, of course, if you do – I’d love to hear how it goes! Night Ya’ll!

More on Eggs

Ok, more on the Poach Pods. I got a pair of Pods about two years ago now, and they are simply wonderful. They are very simple to use – just a dribble of evoo smeared around the inside of the pod, put your egg in, and then place in a sauce pan with about 2 inches of boiling water. Let them cook at a slow boil for a few minutes, and then cover with a lid to let the top of the eggs steam cook. Depending on how runny you want your egg, they usually cook for 5-6 minutes or so {probably less}. They are made of silicone, so with that dribble of evoo, the eggs come right out when you are ready to serve by sliding a spoon around the edges. I do some salt and pepper after they come out & put them on a toasted English Muffin. Yummy!

 

There is a website here that has a cute video about the Pods, and you can order 2 for $10.00 from this site. You can also get them at some grocery stores {Earth Fare} and I’ve seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond. Wouldn’t they make great stocking stuffers for the “cook” in your house?! The only downfall, they only come in green.

 

 

I also found a really great recipe for some Cinnamon Honey Butter on another bloggers site: {Fly Through Our Window}. I haven’t tried it yet – but it looks like such a cute idea for an inexpensive Christmas present. Perhaps for clients or neighbors, or family who would understand being broke and needing to be creative with gifts {hint} … Perhaps that will be my next project. I thought the little jars and tags were just adorable and so creative. Reminds me of when I was little, my mom would bake miniature cakes for my teachers and we would wrap them up in cellophane with ribbons and bows. We always got rave reviews! {perhaps it was the whiskey}

 

Alright, Ya’ll. Enough blogging for tonight. I’m quickly becoming addicted, and feel it is just wrong to go to bed without putting some  kind of thought out into the blogosphere! Night ya’ll!

 

 

Can I have eggs for dessert, please?

20 Dec

 

There may be something wrong with me {you are laughing, because you already know that} … this morning, I baked cookies at 10am. What’s wrong with that? Nothing, except I then turned around and made breakfast at 2pm. I don’t see anything wrong with eating a few Oatmeal Raisin cookies for breakfast and following that up with poached eggs and hash browns for dessert. Clearly – there is nothing wrong with that!

 

A few things to note: These Sun Maid Raisin Oatmeal Cookies turned out great and are actually soft and chewy like they said they would be. A good buy if you ask me.

Also, if you love poached eggs as much as I do… then you need to invest in some Poach Pods. They are a great invention and are really easy to use and to clean up. Nothing is better than a poached egg on an english muffin! Delish!  

Ok – so those are my ramblings for now. I’m sure after dinner {which may be grilled cheese & tomato soup} I’ll have more to say about something … Enjoy your evening!

“Egg-cellent”

I’m in love with an egg salad sandwich. I don’t have some fancy smancy recipe for egg salad. Just good ‘ol boiled eggs, mayo, salt and pepper. But, darn if it isn’t great. Reminds me of two things: 1. My mom’s house and 2. The Masters golf tournament {its a toss up between this and the pimento cheese}. The one thing that I do recommend though, is Dukes mayonnaise. There is something so “southern” about Dukes, it’s just a necessity…. Perhaps I will try to track down a recipe for the Masters sandwiches. I wonder how different it is from mine, since there are so many variations. Anyhow – Enjoy!
