Oh, Hi! Happy New Year!
I did a lot of movie watching over the past few days- I never seem to watch movies. I always feel like there is something else I could be doing or should be doing. However, when a classic is on television – like Pretty Woman- and you have the whole day off, I’m game. It reminded me of how much I love the Julia Roberts/ Richard Gere combination- so I dug out Runaway Bride and watched that too. [I have the worst DVD collection in the history of the universe comprised solely of Rom-Coms and reality TV series likeee seasons 1-3 of Newlyweds. Yes, there were 3 seasons. ]
Stop judging me.
Anyway, in Runaway Bride- I love the part when Maggie Carpenter [played by Julia Roberts] tries every possible egg preparation so she can decide which one is her favorite. For years she would switch her “favorite” to match the tastes of her man of the minute. Finally, she proclaims:
Benedict. I love Eggs Benedict, I hate every other kind. I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I’d like to get married on a weekday while everybody’s at work. And when I ride off into the sunset, I want my own horse.
While I didn’t really make a resolution this year- I plan to be like Maggie and do more things for me in 2013. I want to build a new career for myself in the direction I’ve been dreaming, I want to cook more and teach people how to cook, I want to make nutrition and wellness more than an interest but a priority in my life. I want to choose my favorite type of eggs and make them perfect every single time.
With that being said, Sunny side up are my favorite. And I think that if you make them like this, they will be yours, too.
Sunny Side Up Eggs n’ Bacon Cups
To be more precise: dippy eggs, or over easy/medium if you want to speak in technical terms.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Place slices of Canadian bacon [ it is way healthier for you than regular bacon] in a lightly greased muffin tin.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until desired consistency is reached. Mine were perfect at 17 minutes. The whites were firm and the yolk was still a little bit runny and dippy for toasts sake.
These are the easiest breakfast eggs you will ever make in your life. Okay the overnight ones were easy too. Sorry [I'm not sorry] for my egg obsession lately.
Here’s to easing into this glorious new year, one bacon cup at a time.
