Ham and Cheddar Baked Eggs|
This elegant dish is quick and easy to make. I like baking eggs in the oven as it allows you to run off and do other things, while cooking eggs on the stove oftentimes requires some attention. Baking the eggs also allows you to add additional flavor and ingredients which is hard to do on the stove. This recipe combines the classic combination of Cheddar cheese and ham for a simple and filling breakfast. The ingredients listed below are for one serving, the recipe can be doubled or multiplied as many times as you need.
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons minced ham
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Heavily grease a small individual casserole dish or ramekin (flatter is better) with half the butter. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese in the dish, tilting the dish to coat the buttered sides with the Cheddar. Carefully break the eggs into the dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Dot with the remaining butter. Bake for
12-18 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked the way you like them.
Makes 1 serving.
