September 7, 2010

I hope this finds you ready for a great week after a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Check out the attached video and enjoy your eggs!

Greek Baked Eggs

Yield: 2

Prep/cook time: 10 minutes

Inactive time: 12 minutes.

3 large eggs

3 Tb water

Pinch of salt

2 TB olive oil

2 TB breadcrumbs

¼ C. black olives, chopped roughly

1 tsp fresh oregano, dried oregano, or fresh or dried mint.

¼ C tomato, chopped small

¼ C. Feta cheese, crumbled

Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees.

Whisk the eggs, water and salt and set aside.

In a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat add the olive oil.

Once hot add the breadcrumbs, olives, and herbs. Stir and cook about 30 seconds until breadcrumbs are golden. Turn off heat and stir in tomatoes. Transfer to a buttered ramekin or ovenproof dish. Sprinkle Feta on top. Pour egg mixture on top.

Place ramekin in oven and bake approximately 12 minutes until eggs are evenly firm (160 degrees).

Sprinkle with more feta and herbs if you like. Serve.

Feed the hungry by making a pledge (no cost) to eat good. Do good every day.  America’s egg farmers are donating up to one million eggs to feed the hungry.

Eat well, Enjoy life, Be happy!

    As always, the Egg Tuesday posts are great. I don’t know about the rest of you out there but I sure don’t bake enough egg dishes. And I’m not sure why not … they’re so quick and easy! Plus you can incorporate all sorts of classic flavors to enhance the dish.

    Thanks for the great ideas Jeffrey!

    This is a great recipe, sometime I will make it with my MIL since my wife does not like olives.

    I love the feta and olives at Costco and this will be a great use of them.

    Thanks!
