EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

I think Eggs Benedict or any of its many versions is one of our favourite breakfast/brunch meals.  It does however mean several stages of prep and more than just a pan or two to put it together (toasting the muffins, grilling the ham, poaching the eggs, not to mention whipping up that perfect Hollandaise sauce). In celebration of tomorrow’s National Eggs Benedict Day, I threw together (almost literally too) an easier version with all the main components and pretty much…

EASY CHEESY EGGS

EASY CHEESY EGGS

Our leisurely morning breakfast turned into a flavour explosion today. Try this next time you have a craving for fried eggs. Instead of butter or cooking oil to lubribate the pan, use grated Parmesan (or any other hard cheese like aged cheddar) as a base. I’ve tried Parm and Cheddar and LOVE them both. The oils from the cheese are released when heated, the egg is fried on top and that combination of creamy egg yolk and the bite of…

So many adjectives describe this bubble blowing bundle of cuteness but the pictures will speak for themselves. So many adjectives describe my daughter: at the very least, confident, health conscious and organized. She was happy to take over meal prep and I was more than happy to let her. Our leisurely morning meal consisted of her version of Avocado…
