Favorite Things: Day 8
Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Definitely one of the most fun meals to make. We love variations on the old standbys like pancakes, we love eggs benedict, but lately, I've been waking up with a hankering for this lovely dish from Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights. Baked eggs with onions and swiss chard. Here's what you do...caramelize about 1/2 cup red onion. Meanwhile, chop 1 cup swiss chard. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a ramekin or shallow baking dish. Mix together onion and swiss chard and place in baking dish. Carefully crack one or two farm fresh eggs over the top and pop in the oven for 10-12 minutes. When egg is baked thoroughly, crumble chevre over the top and place under the broil for 2 minutes or until goat cheese is beautifully melty. Crack some pepper on top and voila! Gorgeous and healthy breakfast.
