Eggs - What a Beautiful Thing!
I was just browsing the frig when I saw that box of eggs and thought what an amazing product. You can practically make anything with them, from scrambled to over easy, in a cake, or a sweet bread dough to make sticky buns, in an omelet, an egg drop soup. My latest is an Italian Fritita baked in the oven with a medley of prochuitto, green veggies, fresh herbs and some fontina cheese.
So what are some of your favorite ways to use those incredible eggs.
I just steamed 6 over simmering water-they're in their ice bath right now so I can peel 'em. this juicing thing is making me crave proteins so nuts and a HBE may help that.
really do enjoy:
PD's hard boiled egg casserole as bad as it sounds
egg salad sandwiches
HBE's in fresh potato salad
ham/egg/pickle wrap up appy's
Egg Benedict (if you can find someone who can actually do the egg right) 9 times outta 10 they're not cooked enough for me
deviled eggs made from crazy ingredients
edit: forgot to add crepes, love those things filled with just about anything
conversely don't care for:
HBE's in the middle of meatloaf
or too many eggs in a pound cake (too eggy for my taste)
Hardboiled eggs baked in a béchamel sauce is a very old recipe. You'll find it in many 19th and early 20th century cookbooks.
Given the surfeit of eggs at a time when so many people kept their own chickens, there are scores and scores of egg recipes in older cookbooks. It's quite fascinating reading through all the possibilities for preparing eggs.
there are 5 sandwiches that since a little girl, were always my favorites. egg salad was one of them, they are just so good. my darling beautiful grandmother only used the yoke and a little mustard with her mayo. although I liked much better the way I may it, even as a little girl, I loved hers as well. ahhhh, the memories
A simple dinner for me is cream cheese scrambled eggs. Whup up several eggs with salt, pepper, and some half-and-half or heavy cream (milk if you don't have either of the former). Carefully add in cut-up bits of cream cheese, and cook in a heated pan into which you added some butter. I like them "soft-scrambled" - the cheese is just melted, and the eggs aren't browned but they're cooked. A "side dish" of a toasted and buttered English muffin, and it's dinner. Or breakfast. :-)
For something a bit longer in preparation, I do enjoy quiches. Chopped and cooked bacon, roasted asparagus, and grated fontina or Monterey Jack cheese.
Lemon-Blueberry Sour Cream Cake. Makes a very large tube or bundt pan, so when it gets made, the majority goes into work.
