Skillet: Scrambled

Istarska Fritaja OR Istrian Frittata

A small handful of wild or regular asparagus
a little water
4 eggs
2 thick slices prosciutto, cut into pieces

To prepare the shoots of wild asparagus, gently bend the shoot and then break it where it's hard, and unbending. This part is very woody, and difficult to eat, but can be used to make asparagus stock. Cut the shoots into about 3 - 5 cm pieces.

Warm the oil in a wide pan, and then add asparagus pieces to it. Cook on a low heat, until softened. Add a little water. This will evaporate quickly, and steam the asparagus slightly.

When the asparagus is al dente, add the prosciutto pieces to it, and cook until the prosciutto is cooked, and it changes colour. Then add the eggs, and cook, stirring, until the eggs have set.

Scrambled Eggs with Tarragon & Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes and tarragon add a tantalizing taste to everyday eggs. Removing seeds from tomatoes-called seeding-makes a more attractive presentation. It only takes 2 minutes: slice the tomato in half across its middle. (Think of the tomato as the Earth and cut it in half across the equator.) With the end of a chopstick, scrape the seeds into a bowl, and discard. (I do this for salads to make serving and eating less messy.)

Substitute basil or chives if you don't have fresh tarragon.

2 Roma tomatoes, halved, seeded, and chopped finely
6 medium to large chicken eggs or duck eggs, rinsed
1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried, crumbled tarragon
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil
Dash finely ground black or white pepper

Wash, halve, seed, and chop tomatoes and set aside.

Combine eggs and tarragon in a bowl. Whisk with a fork and set aside.

Heat oil in a 10- to 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Tilt skillet to completely coat bottom and sides. Add egg mixture. Reduce heat to medium or medium-low. As eggs begin to set up (almost immediately), sprinkle with tomatoes and begin pushing cooked portion aside with a metal spatula and tilting pan to allow uncooked portion to run underneath. Repeat as eggs start to set. Keep moving spatula. Remove from heat when eggs are no longer running but still glossy and moist, about 4 minutes for single batch.

Divide into 2 or 3 portions, transfer to serving plates, garnish with pepper, and serve.

* Scrambled Eggs with Chives and Tomatoes: Replace tarragon with fresh or dried chives.
* For a fluffier texture: Blend eggs with tomatoes in a blender or food processor. Stir herbs in by hand and cook as above.

Chorizo and Onions Scrambled Eggs

3 large eggs (one serving)
1/8 cup diced onions
1/2 link chorizo sausage

In a bowl, break the 3 eggs and scramble. Put in the diced onions and mix together.

In a skillet, remove the chorizo sausage from the casing and fry on medium high. As the chorizo heats up, it will start to break down and the grease will start lightly covering the bottom of the skillet. Help break it up with the spatula.

Once the chorizo is fried up (about 3 to 5 minutes), add the eggs and onions and quickly mix together. Continue cooking until done.

Chorizo Con Huevos

8 large eggs
1 Tablespoon oil
1 pound chorizo sausage
1 medium onion - diced
2 Serrano chilies - finely chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro leaves - chopped
1 large avocado - mashed
your favorite salsa

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the chorizo until browned - break up the sausage with a fork as it cooks. (Chorizo is darker in color than most sausages. It will look nearly burnt when browned, but if you look close it's a very deep brown hue.) Can drain off any excess oil.

Add the onion and cook about 2 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the chilies and cook one more minute.

Beat the eggs until frothy and add to the chorizo. Stir with a fork or spatula as you would to make scrambled eggs.

Fold the cilantro in just before eggs are completely set. Serve with fresh salsa, and mashed avocado.

This recipe makes 4 large servings.

* A couple notes about this dish: chorizo is somewhat salty by nature so there's no need to add salt to the eggs as might be your habit; handle the Serrano chilies carefully - be sure to remove the seeds and pith and make sure you wash your hands after chopping.

Cherokee Green Onions and Eggs

3 Tbsp pork fat
2 bunches of wild green onions, whites and crisp green tops, trimmed and sliced in 1/4" rounds, or you may substitute shallots, chives, garlic (or "Chinese") chives, young leeks, or any combination for as much as half of the green onions.
1/4 cup water
7 large eggs or 6 jumbo eggs
pepper (optional)

Heat pork fat in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add green onions and turn in fat to coat. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Uncover and add water. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally, until green onions are tender but not brown. If water is all absorbed, add more by tablespoons. Break eggs into the skillet and stir with a fork until they are scrambled. Raise heat to medium. Continue to stir until eggs are as cooked as desired. When they are nearly done, adjust the seasonings. Serves 3-4.

Vanilla Blueberry Omelet

2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
coconut oil
1/2 c. blueberries

Lightly beat two eggs and vanilla extract in a bowl. Heat 6" non-stick pan over medium heat. While pan is heating, heat half the blueberries in a saucepan until juices flow.

Add coconut oil to non-stick pan and coat evenly. When thoroughly heated, add egg mixture. Swish once and let sit. When eggs are about 70% settled, swish again. There should be a nice crispy layer around the side of the pan. When it starts to separate from the side, add fresh and cooked blueberries to omelet, reserving a few for garnish. Crispy layer should really be pulling away from pan now. Use a fork to help fold the omelet over. Slide on to plate, top with reserved blueberry filling, and enjoy!

1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. hot pepper sauce

Stir-Fry Omelet

3 scallions, diagonal sliced
I handful tiny broccoli florets
Or whatever leftover veggies you have
Bits of leftover cooked chicken, pork, beef, any meat you wish

Add cooked meat, stir fry 1 min. until heated through. Add scallions and eggs, scramble. Add salt to taste. Serve. This is wonderful for when you find yourself craving Chinese fried rice! If you should happen to have a bag of frozen peas you need to get rid of, use them in this recipe too. Add them when you add the meat.

6 eggs
1 bunch fresh spinach chopped (a box of frozen will do if you do not have fresh)
1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Scramble the eggs in a bowl. Add the spinach, salt and pepper. (If using frozen spinach, defrost it first in microwave and then drain it well.) Scramble together. Heat a large non-stick skillet with about 1/2 cup olive oil. Depending on how big your non-stick skillet is depends on the amount of oil. My oil is usually 1/4" deep. When the oil is hot put the hot pepper flakes in then pour the mixture in. When it starts to cook on the bottom, flip it over. I usually break it up into about 6-7 sections and flip it. I do not like it to turn brown on the bottom so I keep flipping it around until it is cooked through. Try not to cook it until it is dry, take it out when it is medium scrambled. Let cool and eat.

Ground Lamb and Eggplant Omelet

In the eastern reaches of the Mediterranean, ground lamb is a meat for all occasions, used to stuff vegetables, to top open-faced and sealed pastries, and, here, in this unusual Egyptian recipe, to embellish an otherwise simple egg dish.

1 large eggplant (about 1/2 pound), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 pound ground lean lamb, preferably from the shoulder
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste diluted with 2 tablespoons water
Freshly ground black pepper
8 large eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 scant teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander

Salt the eggplant cubes in layers in a colander and set aside for 1 hour. Rinse well and pat dry.

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the onions, and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, until they soften. Add the eggplant and continue sautéing until the eggplant is lightly browned and tender. Using a slotted spoon, remove the eggplantonion mixture and set aside.

Add the lamb to the skillet and cook, still over medium heat, stirring, until browned. Add the garlic and tomato paste mixture and season with saltand pepper to taste. Lower the heat and cook for about 20 minutes, until the lamb is cooked through.

While the meat is cooking, beat the eggs, parsley, cumin, coriander, and salt and pepper to taste together in a large bowl. Drain off as much of the fat from the skillet as possible. Add the eggplant and onion mixture and toss. Pour in the eggs and tilt the pan to distribute the eggs evenly all over the skillet. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the eggs are set, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, cut into 6 wedges, and serve.

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup sweet white onion, chopped
1 cup yellow squash, chopped

At this point add salt and pepper, then add tomatoes and spinach and cook until spinach wilts. Drain well before plating.

While finishing this prepare eggs to your liking (I like over medium as this is easiest) in another pan.

To serve, drained hash mixture to and then add to individual plates. On top of hash add 2 cooked eggs per person.

Huevos Rancheros Salsa

2 pounds fresh ripe tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 to 3 serrano or jalapeño chiles, seeded for a milder sauce, and chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled, halved, green shoots removed
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
Salt to taste
4 to 8 eggs (to taste)
Chopped cilantro for garnish

Place the tomatoes, chiles, garlic and onion in a blender and purée, retaining a bit of texture.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat in a large, heavy nonstick skillet, until a drop of purée will sizzle when it hits the pan. Add the purée and cook, stirring, for four to ten minutes, until the sauce thickens, darkens and leaves a trough when you run a spoon down the middle of the pan. It should just begin to stick to the pan. Season to taste with salt, and remove from the heat. Keep warm while you fry the eggs.

Warm four plates. Fry the eggs in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. You won't need much oil if you have another nonstick skillet. Use the remaining tablespoon of oil if necessary. Cook them sunny side up, until the whites are solid but the yolks still runny. Season with salt and pepper, and turn off the heat. Place one or two fried eggs on each plate. Spoon the hot salsa over the whites of the eggs, leaving the yolks exposed if possible. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.

Avocado Poached Egg with Diablo Sauce

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 (15-ounce) can fire roasted crushed tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika (plus more for garnish)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large avocado, halved and pitted
2 medium eggs, room temperature

Prepare Diablo Sauce at least 20 minutes before starting eggs. In a large skillet, heat oil until hot. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant. Stir in tomatoes, paprika, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

When sauce is almost finished, place a steaming basket over 1-inch of water; bring water to a simmer.

Meanwhile, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each avocado half to create a flat surface. Without breaking through the base, carefully scoop out some of the avocado flesh to create a larger indentation. Season with salt. Into each avocado half, crack one egg; season with salt.

Place avocado halves in steaming basket; cover until eggs are poached, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer each avocado half to a serving plate. Sprinkle with paprika and serve with Diablo Sauce.

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease a pie pan with olive oil and then coat pan with sesame seeds, shaking and turning pan to cover totally. Set aside.

Wash kale and remove tough ribs from leaves. Place kale in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for one minute, (The goal is to get the kale tender but still crisp. You may require more or less time depending on your microwave.) Add garlic and onion to bowl and microwave for one more minute until kale is tender. Let sit until warm, then squeeze out excess moisture and chop kale mixture. Return to bowl. Break eggs into bowl and add egg whites. (You can substitute 1 whole egg for the egg whites for a richer dish). Beat the eggs into the mixture with a fork. Add Canadian bacon, salt, pepper and mustard, mix well. Pour mixture into prepared pie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes until top looks dry and puffy. Remove and cool.

Eggs In A Nest

This simple variation on baked eggs seems like something kids would get a kick out of because it looks like an egg in a nest when done. They're quick and easy to make but require 1 cup ramekins or other small oven safe dishes to bake the eggs in.

For each nest:

2 green onions
1 egg
olive oil or other fat to grease dish with
salt and pepper
1/2 chopped tomato

Preheat oven to 350. Grease dish generously, add salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Cut the whites off the green onions, set the green tops aside. Chop the whites. Saute' the green tops and chopped whites in a small amount of oil or in a non-stick pan until wilted. (Alternately, you can put the green onions in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 30 seconds or so, depending on your machine, until the onions are wilted.) Place the onions in the ramikin and make a hole in the center to form the "nest". Break egg into the hole. If desired, add a little oil on top to keep the top of the egg from drying out. Place cup in a shallow baking pan filled 1/2 inch deep with water. Bake for 15 minutes or until top of egg is opaque and firm looking. Garnish with tomato and enjoy.

Variations: Place a lightly cooked slice of bacon in the bottom of the cup before filling with onion. Use other slightly cooked veggies to make the nest, such as spinach or curried onions, tomatoes and okra.

Bird Nests (Paleo)

2 eggs
1/2 cup Coconut, shredded
2 TBSP Almond Flour
Salt, just a pinch

1. Start by separating your two eggs. Do this gently. You do not want to break your yolk.
2. In a mixing bowl, whip your egg whites until white and stiff. I use a hand mixer for this. You can whisk it (takes forever) or use a standard counter mixer with a whisk attachment. This is turning your egg whites into meringue. Your meringue peaks should be stiff!
3. Gently fold your coconut and almond flour into the meringue.
4. Lay down a silicon baking mat or a piece of parchment paper onto a baking sheet. On top of this, you will want to create "nests" of your meringue. Leave a small indention in the center of your nest.
5. Place one yolk in the center of each nest. Sprinkle over your nest and yolk, a little bit of salt. I like to use alalea salt (Hawaiian pink) because it's a little flavorful compared to regular sea salt.
6. Bake at 375F for 13-15 minutes.

Steam broccoli florets for approximately 3 minutes, or until just beginning to soften. Set aside.

Whisk together eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper. Add cooking oil of your choice to a small skillet over medium heat. Toss in broccoli and bacon, tossing several times to ensure even distribution. Mix in egg mixture. Add scallions, stirring once to distribute. Bake at 450 degrees for approximately 15 minutes, or until top of frittata is fluffy and center is set.

- To get a cheesy taste you could add nutritional yeast.

Baked Eggs in Bacon Rings

6 strips nitrite-free bacon or fresh pork side
melted bacon fat for brushing tins
4 slices tomato, each about 1/2 inch thick
4 eggs
pepper to taste
chopped onions (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it begins to shrivel, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Brush 4 cups in a muffin tin or 4 small ramekins with bacon fat. Place a tomato slice in the bottom of each cup. Circle the inside of each cup with 1 1/2 strips of bacon. Break an egg into each muffin cup and season with pepper. Can add chopped onions. Fill any unused tins with water to protect them from burning. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. To serve, loosen the edges of the eggs with spatula and transfer the eggs to plates. Serves 2.

Baked Huevos Rancheros [Poor Kid's]

1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes (with or without chiles)
1 or 2 eggs
1 green onion, sliced fine, white and green parts separated
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Pour can of diced tomatoes into a skillet or small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, until liquid is reduced. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Note: I added 1/4 cup water to the tomatoes before simmering to reduce and perhaps won't do this next time.)

Line the bottom of an ovenproof dish with the chopped white part of the green onion. I used a 5-inch individual ramekin to bake one egg, but you could use a slightly bigger dish if baking two eggs.

Once tomato is reduced, you will have about one cup of tomato goodness. If baking one egg, pour 1/2 cup reduced tomato into ramekin. If baking two eggs, use all the reduced tomato.

Make one (or two) well(s) in tomato and crack egg(s) into well(s).

Bake in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes, until white appears to be set.

Let dish set for 5 minutes before eating.

Paleo Pumpkin Custard

I love pumpkin pie and this recipe helps me get that taste without breaking
Paleo guidelines!

1 cup canned pumpkin purée (NOT pie filling...good ole plain pumpkin)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
pinch of sea salt
nutmeg to taste
2 whole eggs
2 egg whites (love me extra protein)
honey or maple syrup to taste (I used about 1/4 cup stevia or less)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup coconut milk (or any nut milk would work)

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Set a pot of water to boil (enough to fill the baking pan as directed later in this).

Combine the pumpkin and all the spices in a large bowl. In another, smaller bowl, beat the eggs and add the sweetner, milk, vanilla to them.

Whisk the egg mixture in with the pumpkin mixture and mix well.

Pour the custard mix into the ramekins, evenly as possible. (mine filled 5 of them) Place the individual custards in a baking pan and pour the hot water around them into the baking dish (careful not to splash into them), water should come up to 2" or so around them (more than half way).

Bake for 60 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Enjoy warm or chilled.

Serving Size: Makes 5-6 small custard cups worth. Depends on size.
