Last Wednesday, I made a breakfast scramble bread filled with sausage, egg, and cheese for a bake sale my friend was hosting to raise money for the Night Ministry, a non-profit organization that provides housing and health care for the homeless and those struggling with poverty.
To make the bread, I used my mom’s reuben bread recipe, but instead of filling it with reuben ingredients, I filled it with one cup of cheese, 4 eggs, and about a half pound of crumbly sausage. Note that I cooked the eggs and sausage before I put it into the bread.
The bread turned out pretty good, and I was happy that it may have helped my friend raise a few dollars for a good cause.
On Sunday morning, I was super excited about making a kale frittata, first because I figured it would taste awesome and second because it would help me use up lots of the languishing ingredients in my fridge, including some fresh but wilting kale and a few types of cheese. I used this recipe from Eggs on Sunday as inspiration, but pretty much made everything up as a went along. It turned out great!
– 3/4 of one small red onion, chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
– 2 teaspoons of olive oil
– 2 and 1/2 cups of chopped kale, packed tightly
– 8 eggs
– 1/2 cup Parmesan
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Add the olive oil and onion to a cast iron skillet or oven safe pan and saute until onion has browned
Add the garlic and continue sauteing from one minute
Add kale, eggs, Parmesan, salt, and pepper to the pan and then top with mozzarella
Put the whole pan into the oven and cook for approximately 25 minutes until the eggs have set
Slice and carefully remove pieces with a pie server.
Okay, so I went a little nuts and bought one and a half pounds of lox at Costco this week. I knew it was going to be a bit difficult to find ways to use it, so I looked up recipes on Pinterest and found a rather delicious-looking one for eggs benedict with lox from the blog The Shiksa in the Kitchen.
I decided to make the recipe on Thursday night for dinner, which ended up being kind of a fun project—first, because I successfully poached eggs for the first time ever (I’ve almost succeeded before, but this was the first time both eggs turned out perfectly), and second because I made hollandaise sauce for the first time.
I should also mention that while I was eating these eggs benedict I thought I was going to die because they were so delicious. That said, I don’t think I’ll be eating them again any time soon because they’re, well, not at all healthy.
