There is much controversy about eggs. Are they healthy or not? I don’t really know. If we use me as a case study, I’ve been eating eggs (yolks and all) for my whole life, I’m not obese, I don’t have a cholesterol problem and I am mostly healthy. I am fairly sure my craziness is not related to egg eating. Using this highly biased study, eggs are a great choice! Also they are one of the only proteins I can get my kids to eat, so no way I am cutting them out.

8 slices black forest ham
2 tbsp butter
1 small jalapeno, minced
8 cup spinach
Salt and pepper
1 1/3 cup sharp white cheddar grated.
Pre heat broiler. Toast tortillas for about 2 minutes on each side until starting to crisp.
In skillet melt 1 tbsp butter, crack 4 eggs on pan well spaced. Cook 2 minutes until whites are set. Carefully transfer 2 eggs to each tortilla on top of the spinach, repeat with remaining 4 eggs.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over eggs and broil 1-2 min. until egg whites are set on top and cheese has melted.
1 ½ cup milk
1 cup spelt flour
3 tsp evaporated cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
5 apples, peeled and sliced
Heat oven to 425.
Put the butter in a 9.5 x 11 baking dish. Put it in the oven until the butter is melted.
Mix apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. When butter is melted, add apples and place back into oven.
In a bowl combine eggs, milk, flour, vanilla and salt. Whisk to combine.
When apples are softened about 15 minutes, add egg mixture to the dish.
Bake for another 20 minutes. The eggs will puff up. It’s very fun.
Very tasty served with cheddar or breakfast sausages.
I onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cups sweet potato, peeled and diced (I rarely measure this, I just use 2 sweet potatoes)
1 tsp each salt and pepper
½ cup grated cheese, something yummy, old cheddar maybe
2 tbsp fresh chopped herbs, optional
Boil sweet potato until tender, best to leave it a little underdone. This can be done the night before and refrigerated.
Heat oil in a skillet, add onion and garlic. Sauté until fragrant. If you want to add peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, hot peppers, can of corn, throw them in now. Also tasty is ham, bacon, breakfast sausage. Best to pre-cook the meat.
Add sweet potato to skillet and heat to warm.
Transfer to a 9.5 x 11 baking dish. Crack eggs and place them on top of the veggies. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Until eggs are set and yolks cooked to your preference.
Sprinkle with herbs and eat up!
