While I do love to cook, I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of cooking breakfast. I mean, really, how creative can you get with breakfast food? Honestly, my idea of the perfect breakfast is a bowl of steel cut oatmeal with some cinnamon and a few walnuts…perfect..what more does one need?
But, every now and then, if I get really inspired, I’ll fix something different. Since we’re not big on “fried food”, I prefer to bake my eggs. They’re much healthier for you, and they really do taste great! I just crack a couple into individual “gratin” dishes, sprinkle them with a little salt and pepper and then top them with some kind of really good hot sauce. Put them onto a sheet pan, pop them into a preheated 425° oven, and bake until they are just like you like them…On this particular morning, I served them with biscuits and honey-butter. To make your own honey-butter, just take a stick of “room temperature” unsalted butter, whip it up with a mixer or in a blender until fluffy, then start adding honey a tablespoon at a time until it tastes good…it’s as easy as that and SOOOO good on hot biscuits. 🙂
Preheat oven to 425°. Spray gratin dishes with Pam, and crack eggs into dishes. Add a bit of hot sauce if preferred, some salt & pepper and a few chopped chives. Bake until almost set in the middle (about 5 minutes). Then turn oven to “broil” and cook until just set (1-2 minutes more).
