In the past we’ve talked plenty about the health benefits of eggs and how to figure out which types of eggs to purchase, but what about cooking the perfect hard boiled egg? The fresher your eggs, the more likely it is that the shell will be difficult to peel off. Personally, our approach is to use fresh eggs, gently cook them for no more than ten minutes and then cool them quickly. Ingredients: Directions: Mix all ingredients together, stirring not too much, but just enough to make some of the avocado and egg into mush.
Stuffed Breakfast Peppers — What's Cooking, Mexico? I have mentioned before that for me breakfast is the most important meal of the day because: 1) my parents always made me eat breakfast before school, even if that meant waking up at 5:00 am when my first class was at 7:00 am, and 2) the health benefits of starting your day with a delicious meal are many. However, there doesn’t seem to be as many ideas for breakfast as there are for lunches and dinners out there. That’s why I am always trying to come up with new things to make my breakfasts more exciting. Because, let’s face it, if your breakfast is not exciting, it is easier to skip it or opt for a less healthier option at the drive-thru or doughnut shop.

Eggs and Tomato Breakfast Melts I'm in love with these easy open faced breakfast sandwiches made on a whole wheat English muffin with egg whites and scallions, then topped with heirloom tomatoes and melted cheese - mmm! Tomatoes, eggs and scallions are always a winning combination for me - especially now when summer tomatoes are at their sweetest! If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, red grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes would be just as great.

A Two Bite Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs in Toast Cups * Updated post from archive: Originally posted March 29, 2009 If you where to ask me what is my favorite meal of the day without a thought my response would be breakfast! I love breakfast! I love brunch! I love bacon! I love breggs! These little goodies are all of the above in a little two bite package. The other day I was scanning through my copy of William & Sonoma’s: Tools and Techniques. And, they are crazy easy to make. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Trim the crust and the corners off the bread, making wonky looking circles. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and lay the bacon strips on it. Shape the cooled bacon into the toast cups, with the meaty side out. Also, if you aren’t a fan of creamy delicious runny eggs you can beat 4 eggs with a bit of milk, season and spoon into the cups. Lower the temperature of the oven down to 350 degrees. Run a knife along the edges and use a small spoon to pop them out. For the love of eggs, bacon and toast! Ingredients 6 slices of bread 6 eggs
French Toast Egg-in-a-Hole Whenever I’m out to brunch, or even if I’m making it at home, I have a really hard time choosing between sweet and savory. Luckily, I’ve got a special — yet weekday-ready — breakfast that’s both, and pretty much perfect any time of day. This tasty recipe combines two favorites into one: egg-in-a-hole and French toast! For ease, the recipe is baked, so no need to stand over a hot stove. And with a parchment lining on your baking sheet, cleanup is a snap. Makes: 4 servings Ingredients: 4 thick-cut slices day old Italian bread 6 eggs, divided 1/2 cup milk 1 tablespoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon sea salt Maple syrup and fruit for garnish Directions: 1. 2. 3.
Grilled Cheese with Pesto Grilled cheese with pesto. Do it, and you won’t regret it. Even my 84-year-old grandma who literally wrote a cookbook about delicious appetizers thinks this combo is the bee’s knees. I always use Tillamook Extra Sharp cheddar cheese and my mom’s homemade bread (which she sells at the Corvallis Farmers’ Market on Saturdays). While the food-processor method for making pesto does the trick, I’ve been having fun chopping everything with just a big knife, kinda like in this video by Tiger in a Jar (though not quite so pretty). Keep-me-warm curry soup Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion and gently fry until soft. Add the curry paste and chilli flakes and fry for another 2 minutes before adding the grated carrots, lentils, coconut milk and stock. Season, then simmer for 15 minutes, or until the lentils are soft (squash one against the side of the pan to check). Whizz the soup with a stick blender until smooth, season to taste, then stir in the basmati rice. Freezing and defrosting guidelines Make the soup, then leave to cool at room temperature.
Beef, Barley And Vegetable Soup Recipe Step 1 Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the beef and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a plate. Step 2 Add remaining oil to the pan. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft.

Chicken Lentil Soup — Dinner Recipes from The Kitchn For me, especially when I'm focusing on my health or losing weight, there is nothing more comforting than having many containers of this nourishing, delicious, filling lentil soup with chicken stashed away in the freezer. Lentil soup is actually the very first dish I learned to cook, and I am still amazed at how easy it is to make something so much better than you get from a can. I'm also sentimental about this soup, so it will probably always be among my favorite things to make. I do prefer using bacon fat here—I spend extra on premium bacon so I always strain and save the rendered fat for making this soup. For a vegetarian version, just leave out the chicken and bacon fat (use olive oil instead). Chicken Lentil Soup Serves 8 to 10 Melt the bacon fat or butter in the bottom of a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic. Add the chicken stock and lentils and bring to a boil. Serve with cheese sprinkled over the top of the bowl. Recipe Note
