The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Egg in the Hole

Egg in the Hole

I have a very simple, yet satisfying, breakfast for you today. Something that is not simple about this is it's name, I feel like there is a never ending list of what to call it. I call it Egg in the Hole, but it's also known as Rocky Mountain Toast, Eggs in a Blanket, Frog in the Hole, Bird's Nest, Cowboy Eggs, One Eyed Jacks, Toad in a Hole, okay I'll stop now, but really the list coud go on.

I like it simple with plain old wheat bread, but you can also branch out and use a waffle, bagel, french toast or pancake.

The recipe below is for one Egg in the Hole, so adjust the quantities for the number of people you are serving.

1 piece of bread
1 egg
1/2 tablespoon of butter (or bacon grease if you decide to serve with bacon)

Cut hole out of center of bread using the rim of a glass (or round cookie cutter if you have one). Reserving the round that was cut out.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. If you are making bacon, just wipe out some of the grease (remember the grease will be very hot from cooking the bacon) from the pan leaving a little, and there is no need to use butter. Once butter is melted, place bread in pan for 1 minute and flip over. Once flipped over crack egg into center of hole, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover pan with lid and cook for about 4 minutes or until egg whites are cooked and yolk is still runny. Cook longer if you do not like a runny yolk.

Meanwhile toast the center round by placing in pan and cooking on both sides for 2-3 minutes.

Serve, using center round to dip into runny yolk or serve it with jam.
