Heavenly Eggs

aka Hilary’s Heavenly Eggs found on Noble Pig.
aka Eggs in Purgatory

3 slices of a rustic country style loaf
butter on each side
throw on a pan on medium heat until brown on each side
set aside

Pan on medium to high heat
Slice red onion and add until sauteed and brown
Add Marinara to the pan, simmer don’t boil
Add eggs whole and cook for 8 minutes or until ready (4 mins covered, 4 mins not)

Add sauce and eggs to the toasted bread. Chopped Basil as a garnish.

Scrambled Eggs

The most important aspect of scrambled eggs is the order in which everything happens. Adding salt at the wrong time can end up breaking the eggs down and destroying anything light and fluffy.

Serves: 1

In a bowl:

2 Egg Whites, 2 Whole (or 3 Eggs)
< 1 Tbsp. Water

Whisk lightly.

Pan on medium to high heat.

1 Tbsp. Butter (until brown)

Scramble the eggs repeatedly while they cook in the pan. 12 o'clock, 3, 6, and then 9.

When the eggs start to take their shape and look like clouds:

1 Tbsp. Milk (to cool the eggs)

Salt
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Chives or Green Onion

Putting on milk at the end makes the eggs creamy. Salt and seasoning at the end puts the taste on the outside of the eggs (rather than in) which means…more tasty.

Back on the pan until you can taste with your fork and they taste "ready."

Sides can include pan seared tomatoes and portabello mushrooms.

Salsa and crushed tortilla chips add nice flavor to the dish.

Bon appetite.

Sweet Potato Frittata

Inspired by this recipe.

The word I keep repeating for this dish for some reason is “unctuous.”

Mixed in a bowl

2 egg whites
2 egg whole

Sautee on high heat

Olive oil

Sweet Potato (or yam) thin to medium sliced, and the slices then quartered, when half soft

Shallots (or onion) diced

Salt
Garlic
Pepper

When potatoes are soft…

Butter, melted

Then

Pour eggs into the pan, the final texture will resemble an omelet

Finally

Add your favorite salsa (or your own homemade). This is important as the salt and spice contrast the sweet flavor of the potato.
