 Baked Eggs

  • 2 eggs
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease two ramekins with butter and break one egg into each. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a teaspoon of butter. Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the egg is firm. Can served with toast points.

Fried Egg and Asparagus

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese - freshly shaved
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) of asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Clean and cut any woody areas off of the asparagus. Place asparagus in a large griddle or skillet side by side - as many as you can fit. Drizzle with the olive oil and cook on high for three minutes, turn over and do the other side of the asparagus for the same amount of time. In another greased skillet, crack one egg at a time and fry - both sides. Serve three aparagus with a fried egg on top. Drizzle with olive oil and a few slithers of Parmesan cheese. Can leave cheese off if you choose.

Eggs Florentine

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Pound (8 ounces) of spinach
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese  or more if you like
  • Salt - for seasoning

Cook the spinach in a dry pan for 2-4 minutes - until wilted. Drain the spinach and place in a small casserole dish. Break two eggs on top of the spinach, season with salt and cover with grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for around 15-20 minutes. Can serve with tomatoes.

 Poached Eggs in Curry

  • 7 eggs
  • 3 slices of bread - toasted and cut in half
  • Butter - for toast
  • 1 cup of your favorite curry sauce

Let the curry sauce simmer in a large pot while you poach your eggs. Poach 6 eggs and place on buttered toast. Add one egg yolk to the curry sauce and whip together. Pour the sauce over the eggs. Can add rice.
