I can't tell you how much we love eggs around here. We eat about 2 dozen a week (farm fresh-thanks Darla!), which includes using them in baking recipes.
We love them fried, poached, boiled, scrambled, baked and in an omelet. I think they are one of the world's most perfect foods. In fact, I myself could probably live without meat using eggs as my protein source.
I know some people despise them. I don't understand people like that ;)
Now I don't mean to brag, but I can make a mean, mean breakfast. It is my absolute favorite meal of the day to make, and I serve up the best of the best around here. Rich is a lucky man.
This summer I intend on sharing more of our favorite egg dishes with you. Some people are afraid of eggs. That's just not necessary!
This egg dish is one I like to make for the boys. It takes 2 minutes to whip up and throw in the oven, but I feel like I'm serving them a nutritious breakfast on a busy morning.
Baked Egg Cups
1/8 c. milk or half & half
1 T. salsa
2 T. cheddar cheese
1 T. fresh chopped chives
1 T. parmesan cheese
salt/pepper to taste
Grease 2 muffin pan cups. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the eggs and milk. Add in the chives, cheddar, salsa and salt/pepper. Pour mixture into prepared cups. Sprinkle with parmesan. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until eggs are fluffy and set.
**When I serve these to Henry, I sometimes pour pure maple syrup over the top. He loves it!
I've been working on some changes here to make things easier to find. I'll most likely be making a lot of changes this summer. I updated the Most Popular Posts page with some recipes and projects that I've received the most emails, comments or linkbacks about. I still have more to add and will soon.
I also updated the "My Story" link above and will be adding some really awesome blogs I've recently found to my favorite blog links.
Also, if you are a big reader like I am, you might enjoy my latest BlogHer Bookclub book review on the book A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkeness here.
And, I would really love it if you would "like" my Sunday Baker Facebook Page. I post daily updates, new pictures, and fun conversations. Hope to see you there!
