However, browsing through Food Network, I came across the new show "Ask Aida". Aida is personable, maybe a little stiff still, but I'd watch her cook. But man, her "co-host", that geeky dude, he's not helping the show. It's like Tyler Florence's How to Boil Water. I would watch Tyler cook, like I do now with is Ultimate shows, but that chick with him wasn't adding to anything. But I digress.
Aida was finishing up the Baked Eggs with Canadian Bacon, Spinach, and Aged Cheddar and they looked DELICIOUS.
The baked eggs got stuck in my head once again when I woke up this morning. I obviously don't have any Canadian bacon on hand nor spinach, aged cheddar, cream, or sourdough so I improvised.
Oakley's Easy Baked Eggs
A few slices of lunch meat - ham or turkey would do.
A splash of milk
A few slivers of butter
4 big pinches of shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
Optional: Cayenne pepper or hot sauce, fresh herbs of your choice, garlic powder, onion powder, whatever you want to flavor this with. Go crazy!
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Put lunch meat in the bottom of each ramekin and crack one egg over that.
- To each ramekin, add a splash of milk, a bit of butter, and seasonings. Top all of them off with cheese.
- Put ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes for runny eggs. If you like it well cooked (like Brandon), bake for 20-25 minutes.
Very easy and straight forward, y'all!
