Bacon, Tomato and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs

 

 

Ingredients: (Bacon, Tomato and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs)

1 pound bakery white bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (16 cups)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound sliced applewood-smoked bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
One 28-ounce can whole Italian tomatoes—drained, chopped and patted dry
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 pound extra-sharp cheddar, shredded (about 2 cups)
1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons snipped chives
1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Salt
8 large eggs
Hot sauce, for serving

Directions: (Bacon, Tomato and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. In a large bowl, toss the bread with the olive oil and spread on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, tossing once or twice, until the bread is golden and lightly crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain; reserve 2 tablespoons of the fat in the skillet.
  3. Add the onion to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and crushed red pepper and cook until any liquid is evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  4. Return the toasted bread cubes to the bowl. Add the contents of the skillet, along with the bacon, shredded cheeses, chives and broth. Stir until the bread is evenly moistened. Season with salt. Spread the mixture in the baking dish and cover with lightly oiled foil.
  5. Bake the bread mixture in the center of the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the top is crispy, about 15 minutes longer. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven and, using a ladle, press 8 indentations into the bread mixture. Crack an egg into each indentation. Return the dish to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until the egg whites are set but the yolks are still runny. Serve the breakfast bake right away with hot sauce.

1 1/2 cups Milk
4 oz caster Sugar
yellow food coloring (optional)

Directions:(Chinese Egg Custard Tarts)

Sift the flour into a large bowl.
Work the butter into the flour with the tips of your fingers, until the mixture has the appearance of coarse breadcrumbs.
Continue kneading, adding the hot water. Roll the dough into a large ball, cover with wax paper and refrigerate while preparing the custard filling.
Lightly beat the eggs, taking care not to produce any air bubbles. Stir in the milk and the sugar.
Add the yellow food color if using. On a large, lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it is thin.

Canadian Bacon and Potato Omelet

Ingredients:(Canadian Bacon and Potato Omelet)

2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup chopped Canadian bacon (or bacon bits or sausage crumbles)
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup diced potato (like frozen Southern style)
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
pico de gallo

Directions:(Canadian Bacon and Potato Omelet)

Whisk together eggs, egg whites, canadian bacon, cilantro, salt and pepper. Set aside.
In non-stick skillet, add oil and saute onion for 1 minute then add potatoes and cook over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove potatoes to a plate and set aside.
Melt butter in the skillet and pour in egg mixture. The eggs should begin to set around the edges almost immediately. Lift edges and tilt skillet to allow uncooked egg to roll under cooked eggs. Continue until eggs are set.
Sprinkle eggs with cheese and add potatoes to top of omelet then fold eggs over to enclose cheese and potatoes. Remove to a plate.
At this point, I cut the omelet in half and place on two plates. I sprinkle a bit more cheese over top of omelet, add a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of pico de gallo.
NOTE I recently read a tip to cut the heat in jalapinos without sacrificing the flavor — After seeding the peppers place in abowl of hot tap water for 10-20 minutes to soak out pepper oils which hold the heat of the peppers.
